Not if the Steelers are desperate enough at wide receiver to sign Plaxico Burress, whom the New York Jets cut loose after last season and who told USA Today he was good for two or three touchdowns "coming off the couch."
Fine. But how will he do coming off the bench?
But the Ravens said they're not concerned with any of that. And none of the players I spoke to said they felt a different vibe about this Steelers game, even with that comfortable three-game lead in the division.
"No, it may seem like that," Joe Flacco said. "But we're not in any more of a comfortable position. The more and more games we win, the more and more important all these games become. Just because we've positioned ourselves well, but we haven't decided anything yet.
"We're trying to become one of the top teams in the AFC," he continued. "And in order to do that, we have to win every week. And we understand that. And there's a big emphasis on continuing to win. It may seem like a loss may not kill us, but you never know. In this league, anything can happen."
"This team's a (ticked)-off 9-2," Rice said. "We feel we can get so much better. I've been around five years and this year just feels totally different. We're 9-2 and nobody's satisfied."
The way things are shaping up, there's a good chance they'll be 10-2 by Sunday evening.
Sure, it's a big game. Sure, it's the Steelers, who always give them a fight.
But it sure feels as if the Ravens are catching them at the right time.
