5 Reasons Ravens Vs. Steelers Is The Fiercest Rivalry In Sports
Reason 5: Records Don’t Matter
The Steelers went to the playoffs last year. In fact, they almost beat the Denver Broncos (who went on to win it all). The Ravens were 5-11 last season. It was the first losing season under John Harbaugh. When the 2015 played the Steelers they were supposed to get their butts kicked. Instead the Ravens swept the Steelers. Yes, the worst Ravens team ever swept a playoff bound Steelers team.
That is a sign of a great rivalry. When the records of the teams don’t matter, the rivalry is fierce beyond belief. In these games anything can happen. Let’s be honest, rivalries depend on both teams to be competitive. Right before Jim Harbaugh got to Ann Arbor, Michigan vs. Ohio State wasn’t that big of a deal. Now it’s back on top of the College Football landscape. Ravens Vs. Steelers never stopped being a big deal even when Baltimore was in a horrible season.
