The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens hook up in a big rivalry Thanksgiving night game with a lot at stake Thursday night.
The Steelers are playing their best football of the season and are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, but are still on the outside of the muddled AFC playoff picture.
Unfortunately for them, the defending Super Bowl champions are in the exact same spot.
Both teams are among the half-dozen teams in the conference currently tied for the final wild-card berth, making this game a potentially season-altering contest.
As if Steelers-Ravens isn’t big enough, add in the primetime stage and huge stakes in which the loser could see their playoff hopes potentially evaporate and this has the makings of a huge contest.
Who has the edge?
Let’s take a look.
