Steelers fired up by comments from Joe Flacco
The Pittsburgh Steelers have some extra fire entering their game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens won the first meeting between the teams this season in a 26-14 victory during Week 4. After that game, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco rubbed in the win by talking about how easy it felt.
“I really just felt we could have 28, 30, 35 points up out there at halftime,” Flacco said after the game. “It’s not like today was the toughest Pittsburgh Steeler games I’ve ever played.”
“He didn’t feel like he was hit hard enough. We’ll see how it goes. You don’t really see a quarterback saying anything like that,” guard Ramon Foster said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“We’ll see if he has the same response after this game,” safety Sean Davis said.
Flacco threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns in the game, which was part of a 3-1 start. The Ravens have lost two in a row entering this game, while the Steelers have won three in a row. Pittsburgh appears well-positioned for some revenge.
