PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Steelers tight end Eric Ebron played in his first Steelers-Ravens game earlier this month, a big comeback win and the second Steelers win in their last five matchups with Baltimore.
So Ebron asked Monday about his first taste of the rivalry. What he expects in the rematch on Thanksgiving.
“We won, right,” Ebron said. “That’s exactly what I expect Thursday night. I’m going to just be honest with you.”
It’s the second time in his career he had faced the Ravens and first time he won. The 27-year-old had four catches including a touchdown on the November 1 afternoon in Baltimore.
Maybe only having a few fans on hand for that game played into it not being a typical Steelers-Ravens game, or maybe Ebron does just believe it’s one game at a time.
“To me it’s a football game,” Ebron said. “To me they are an opponent that doesn’t wear black and gold. They’re just another opponent.”
There will again be limited fans as the Steelers attempt to go 11-0 and eliminate the Ravens from winning the AFC North.
“At the end of the day y-all about to come into our house,” Ebron said. “At the end of the day I don’t like losing at home. It’s just another opponent coming into our house that we have to defend.”
Stay tuned to 93.7 The Fan all week for Steelers-Ravens talk leading up to kickoff at 8:20 Thursday night.
