5. Have A Sense Of Urgency:

The Ravens have to get off to a fast start in this game. They have to play well from start to finish in this game. This is not a game that they can wait to turn the jets on in desperation time. They need to get going from the opening kickoff. They need to do this for two reasons.

First, the Steelers will bury the Ravens if they dig their own grave. Secondly it’s their job. The Ravens job is to try to win. The season is on the line and it’s time to wake up from whatever haze they’re in. It’s what they are paid to do, and at the end of the day, their fans deserve a great effort.
