Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis was among eight selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, and that's fine, even though he averaged a so-so 3.9 yards per carry in his 13 NFL seasons.

To be fair, "The Bus" gained a more-impressive 13,662 yards and scored 91 touchdowns in his career, which included three seasons with the St. Louis Rams. He also ran for 969 yards in 16 regular-season games against the Ravens.

But, at least once, Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis won the battle against Bettis.

Of course, Bettis got the last laugh in that game, a 2002 AFC divisional playoff. The Steelers won, 27-10, but went on to lose to the New England Patriots in the AFC championship.
