One of the most storied rivalries in the NFL goes down in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

As tough a matchup as the Ravens can be, Steelers historians are happy to see the draw their team got in the opening round. Baltimore has never defeated Pittsburgh in the postseason.

This game will be the first postseason meeting between the AFC North rivals.

The game will be played at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, which is where the Ravens suffered their worst defeat of the 2014 season.

The team fell to the Steelers by a score of 43-23 on Nov. 2, in a game in which Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw six touchdown passes, tying a franchise record.

The Steelers will have Roethlisberger under center on Saturday, but they figure to be without the services of running back Le’Veon Bell, after the league’s second-leading rusher hyperextended his right knee in the team’s regular-season finale, a 27-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

That game clinched the AFC North and the No. 3 seed in the AFC for the Steelers.

Meanwhile, the Ravens climbed into the postseason with wins in three of its final four regular-season games, and got a little help from the Kansas City Chiefs, who defeated the San Diego Chargers in Week 17.

The Baltimore offense will need to get things together for this one, as they haven’t scored more than 20 points in a game since Dec. 7.

However, the team’s defense has limited opponents to 15.7 points per game over the last three contests, including limiting the Cleveland Browns to 259 yards of offense in Week 17.

The Steelers will look to counter that strong defense with a patchwork running game that will feature the trio of undrafted rookie Josh Harris, third-round pick Dri Archer, and recently signed Ben Tate.

The Pittsburgh defense will look to force some turnovers against a Baltimore offense that’s given the ball away 11 times in its last three games.

Free Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh Pick:

The home side has won each of four meetings between these teams over the last four seasons, but that trend could be reversed on Saturday, with the teams heading in opposite directions.

NFL Betting Trends:

The Ravens are 4-0 ATS in their last four playoff road games, and 5-0 ATS in their last five playoff games overall.

The Ravens are 4-0 ATS in their last four wild-card games, and they are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games against opponents with a winning record.
