3. Will Terrell Suggs dominate the Steelers again?

Ravens rush linebacker Terrell Suggs has a particularly strong track record against the Steelers.
He has 13.5 career sacks in the regular season against the Steelers, with 88 tackles, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Including the playoffs, Suggs has 18.5 sacks against Pittsburgh and has sacked Ben Roethlisberger 15.5 times. No other player has sacked Roethlisberger more often.
The Steelers already have allowed 19 sacks this season and are now also without offensive tackle Levi Brown. Brown tore his triceps after being acquired from the Arizona Cardinals in a trade earlier this month, and has been placed on injured reserve.
This matchup could shape up well for a dominant Suggs performance. He failed to record a sack last week, the first time that's happened this season. Suggs leads the Ravens with seven sacks.
