According to a recent report from Gather.com, the Pittsburgh Steelers versus Baltimore Ravens matchup is going to feature plenty of hard-hitting action.Â Both teams finished the previous NFL season with 12-4 records, so it should be a very competitive game.Â Ben Roethlisberger looks to continue his winning ways as Steelers quarterback and put the past behind him.Â On the other side, Joe Flacco will look to continue on with his impressive 93.6% quarterback rating and 73.5 completion percentage.Â Flacco (pictured via Wikipedia) threw for 265 yards and 2 touchdowns in the recent lopsided win against the Kansas City Chiefs.Â The Steelers are hoping that a week of rest will have them mentally prepared for the game.
Later Saturday evening, it's the NFC taking to the field to settle a game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Green Bay Packers.Â The Packers are coming off last weekend's huge win against the Philadelphia Eagles.Â With a 10-6 record they'll be battling the best of the NFC in the Atlanta Falcons at 13-3.Â The Falcons have become a major contender in the wake of the whole Michael Vick incident years back, and now are looking like potential Superbowl contenders.Â However, a report from ESPN.com notes that this Packers team is also much improved since the last time they played the Falcons.Â Atlanta gets the home field advantage which could be a major boost.
