Baltimore won’t go down without a fight Dan Leberfeld

The Baltimore Ravens are way out of playoff contention.

But that won’t stop them for giving a supreme effort against their hated rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, on Sunday.

“It means something just to beat Pittsburgh, period,” Ravens wide receiver Kamar Aiken told “If we can sweep them for the year, that’s big for us because of the rivalry in itself. That’ll be an extra bonus if we can knock them out, too.”

“We don’t think those guys are any better than us,” Ravens defensive end Timmy Jernigan said. “At the end of the day, they have a better record than us. I feel like that’s the only difference standing between us is our record.”

“Whether we’re 0-14 or 14-0, the Steelers game is the Steelers game, no matter what,” Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams said. “It’s going to be a high-intensity game. We’re going to fight, and they’re going to know they’re going to be in a fight.”
