The first day of NFL playoff action concludes with the renewal of one of the NFL's best rivalries, as the Baltimore Ravens head to the Steel City to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. These two teams have met twice this season, with each getting a 20-point victory over the other. Baltimore won in their house back in Week 2 by a score of 26-6, and the Steelers beat the Ravens in early November by a score of 43-23.

The Steelers are going to be without a big part of their offense, as running back Le'Veon Bell has been ruled out of tonight's contest. Still, they have Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown, and the last time these two teams met, Big Ben had his second-straight six-touchdown game in the Steelers' victory. I don't think that there's going to be any sort of a blowout in this one, but I don't know if Joe Flacco and company have what it takes to advance in this one.

If you're going to be watching tonight's action with you fellow Minnesota Vikings fans, you can talk about all of it right here. Enjoy the game, everybody!
