The Ravens' Ed Reed and Steelers' Hines Ward have words during an AFC Divisional playoff game at Heinz Field in January. The two teams will open their respective 2011 seasons facing each other on Sept. 11 in Baltimore.

The Steelers will begin their 2011 season -- provided there is a 2011 season -- at their most bitter and closest rival, the Baltimore Ravens, Sept. 11 and once again have five night games on their 16-game schedule.
While the Ravens help them open the season, the two will conclude their division series long before the season ends when Baltimore comes to Heinz Field for a Nov. 6 game.
The NFL did the Steelers no favor near the end of the season when they scheduled them for a Monday night game Dec. 19 at San Francisco and gave them a game the following Saturday, Christmas Eve, at home against St. Louis.
