5 Reasons Ravens Vs. Steelers Is The Fiercest Rivalry In Sports
Reason 4: A Chip On Our Shoulder
The Ravens don’t like hearing about the greatness of their rivals. They never bowed down to the New England Patriots and they never kissed the Steelers rings. Over an over, we have to hear that the Steelers have more Super Bowl wins than any team in the NFL. Nobody seems to mention that since the Ravens inception into the league Baltimore and Pittsburgh have both won two Super Bowls. The Steelers always get praise for their rich history. The Ravens cannot compete with that history, so there is a chip on their shoulders.
Every rivalry has a reigning top dog. Right now the Baltimore has the power in this rivalry. They have won three games in a row against the Steelers.
Baltimore has a bit of an inferiority complex with the Steelers. We can admit it. The Ravens have always reveled in the “Us against the World” mantra. This was true when Brian Billick was the coach and nothing has really changed. The Ravens have to prove that they’re the top dog. They desperately wants to prove this. Baltimore has been just as successful as Pittsburgh. The Ravens have been a great franchise. In 1996 the Ravens were born. It’s 2016 we have won two Lombardi Trophies. The Ravens have a chip on their shoulder and it is especially true when they play the Steelers.
