Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Ravens news and notes from around the web.  Today we look at an early Ravens vs Steelers preview, updated NFL power rankings, grades for the Ravens win over the Browns, Joe Flacco’s fiery halftime speech, and Timmy Jernigan’s injury.

Ravens vs Steelers Preview

The Ravens are 0-3 against Pittsburgh all time in the playoffs, and are sure to be underdogs this time as well.  LeVeon Bell hurt his knee yesterday and the Steelers may need to lean on Big Ben a little more, however.  Saturday night should be rocking in the Steel City no matter who plays.

Cool Joe isn’t known for being an outspoken leader, but he had some choice words for the team at halftime Sunday against the Browns.

Jernigan was carted off after he was unable to put any weight on his left foot.  Brown, who was active for the first time in ages, left with a hamstring injury of his own.
