Steelers-Ravens * Saturday, January 3 * Heinz Field
AFC Wild Card Round
Gates open at 6:15 pm * Kickoff at 8:15 pm
What does Heeeeath have to say about the Ravens? Here are the top three takes from the fan favorite and all-everything tight end.
** Miller is impressed by Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who returns this week after a four-game suspension.
"He has great athleticism for his size," said Miller. "It's pretty special how he is able to move and he kind of plays like a little guy at 350 pounds. He is big, strong, has all of the traits of a big guy but moves like a little guy."
** When asked who talks more on the field, him or Terrell Suggs, the soft-spoken Miller definitely said Suggs. But Miller has plenty of respect for the Ravens defense, and doesn't think the Steelers will have a repeat performance of their Nov. 2 matchup when the Steelers won 43-23 behind six passing touchdowns.
"They are really good in the red zone, good at making teams kick field goals," said Miller. "That's got to be our goal this time, when we get down in the red zone to be able to find a way to get it into the end zone and get seven points."
** While Miller knows the Steelers-Ravens rivalry is the biggest one he has been a part of since coming to the Steelers as a No. 1 pick in 2005, he said he doesn't give this week's game any extra edge.
"We are just trying to win," said Miller. "It doesn't matter who we are playing this week, we know it's win or go home. We have to approach it that way."
