PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ben Roethlisberger is the great equalizer in the Steelers-Ravens rivalry.

Of the last eight games between the division rivals, the Steelers have won five _ all with Roethlisberger at quarterback. The three he didn’t play, they lost.

Despite spraining his right foot against the Bills, Roethlisberger is expected to be in the lineup when the teams meet Sunday night in Baltimore for first place in the AFC North. Roethlisberger was suspended when the Ravens beat the Steelers 17-14 on a last-minute Joe Flacco to T.J. Houshmandzadeh touchdown pass Oct. 3 in Pittsburgh.

Roethlisberger is 7-2 as a starter against Baltimore, with both losses occurring in 2006.
