Ben Roethlisberger on Ravens Matchup: 'What the NFL Wanted'

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is ready for another showdown with the Ravens on Saturday in the wild-card round.

Pittsburgh is 6-2 at home this year and will be seeing their AFC North rivals for the third time this year.

"Here we go again," Roethlisberger said of the rivalry.  "This is probably what the NFL wanted more than anything."

The Steelers are 3-0 against Baltimore in their playoff matchups at home.

"It's a great challenge," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Monday. "It's another playoff game there. We'd like to win one, one of these days."

Roethlisberger has led the offense to 27.3 points per game, but they could be without running back Le'Veon Bell.

"It's the playoffs," Roethlisberger said of stepping it up a notch with Bell's status up in the air.  "It's a sense of urgency from all of us.  I'm not going to rule anyone out yet, I'm not a doctor, but we'll see what happens."
