Join Alan Zlotorzynski (Birds of Baltimore and Steve Shoup for the Baltimore Ravens Pre-Game show.

Starting tonight and in an unusual bit of scheduling, the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers will play twice in the next three weeks. The Ravens meet AFC North rival Pittsburgh at Heinz Field. The Ravens, who have won two in a row and six of their last seven, are 7-2. 

The Ravens have an opportunity to win their third straight game vs. the black and gold and in Pittsburgh. This is the most intense rivalry in all of sports. Three points have decided five of the last six games and in each of the last two seasons, the Ravens and Steelers have produced 12-4 records. The Ravens won the AFC North in 2011 and Steelers did in 2010. Over the last three seasons, the Ravens have won four of six games, including three of the last four and two in a row.

The Ravens won the last two regular season games at Heinz Field, with QB Joe Flacco throwing game-winning TDs in the final minute of play: 26 yards to WR Torrey Smith on 11/6/11 with 18 seconds left (23-20) and 18 yards to WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh on 10/3/10 with 32 seconds remaining (17-14)

Tonight, Alan and Steve break it all down for you, the stats, the numbers, the history and why the rivalry is so intense and extends well beyond the Ravens and Steelers. You will have all of the audio clips from both teams to get you set.

Steve will recap his day at Fed Ex Field as the Redskins RG III threw four touchdown passes today, and the Washington Redskins broke a three-game losing streak with a 31-6 win over the skidding Philadelphia Eagles.

Griffin completed 14 of 15 passes for 200 yards and ran 11 times for 85 yards. He threw for scores of 6, 49, 61 and 17 yards -- one in each quarter.

Alan and Steve will also recap the day in the NFL all in preparation for the MAIN EVENT TONIGHT.
