"The Thrilla-N-Pittsila" NFL's Divisional Playoff Main Event
The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers will lead off the Divisional Playoff weekend at 4:30 pm this upcoming Saturday afternoon. Its the first of four games to be played and by the opinion of most football fans it will be the most intense and physical.
The game is so hyped that its being named "The Thrilla-N-Pittsila" a take from the 1975 Ali-Frazier Thrilla In Manila heavyweight fight. Baltimore and Pittsburgh are regarded as the 2 best NFL defensive teams over the past decade. They both personify "smash-mouth style football."
Now their epic rivalry has a title name "The Thrilla-N-Pittsila" that will be remembered 10,15, 20-years from now. "There have been hundreds of playoff games but none of them have had a title like this" says, Derrick E. Vaughan of Dunkadelic Sports Marketing.
Vaughan continues, "this might be the most watched divisional playoff game in NFL history. These 2 teams will be playing each other for the 8th time in 3 seasons. This not baseball or basketball. To play a team eight times and a playoff rematch from the 2009 AFC Championship Game this is as good as it gets. "
The game has a poem in the pattern of the one Muhammad Ali created for The Thrilla In Manila.
"Its going to be a gridiron thrilla, and a chilla, when B-More comes to town for The Thrilla-N-Pittsila."
Just 5 weeks ago (12/5/10) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had his nose broken by Raven defensive players Terrell Suggs and Haloti Ngata during the first series of the game for Pittsburgh. Ben got knocked down by a big right, took an eight-count but was able to get up and continue.
Troy Polamalu with about three-and-half minutes left to go in the 4th quarter came off the left end and hit Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco with a Joe Frazier left hook and knocked the ball out of his hands. Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley picked up the fumble and was tackled at the Ravens 10-yard line. The Steelers scored a touchdown and won the game 13-10. 12th round TK0 by Pittsburgh.
Terrell Suggs the Ravens linebacker said yesterday, "this is World War 3 to us. This is definitely Armageddon."
Fans and historians remember the Ice Bowl, the Immaculate Reception, The Catch, the Fog Bowl, the Music City Miracle, and when the dust is settled Saturday around 8:00 pm "The Thrilla-N-Pittsila."
