When the Ravens and Steelers square off Sunday with first place in the AFC North on the line, it won't be the first time the teams have met with the game having playoff implications. One of the more recent games occurred Dec. 26, 2004, in Pittsburgh. The Ravens (8-6 at the time) were trying to keep their playoff hopes alive while the Steelers (13-1 going into the game) were steamrollering to home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. The Steelers came out on top, 20-7, and the Ravens would need a miracle to make the playoffs. It didn't happen for the Ravens, who were 7-3 after 10 games.
