Ravens Vs. Steelers. It is the rivalry of all rivalries.
The Baltimore Ravens rivalry with the Pittsburgh Steelers is the most emotional and tense rivalry in all of sports. It’s like a nerve that constantly gets pinched. It’s a feeling deep down in the gut. Ravens and Steelers fans can get along, but it will never happen on an NFL Sunday. It’s must watch television. Mondays after a Ravens loss are brutal. After a loss to the Steelers though, every day of the week is an agonizing Monday. Beating the Steelers makes the entire week seem like a lightning bolt of smiles. The purple and black always get up for games against the Steelers. So does the flock.
