Ravens vs. Steelers: Mike Wallace expects 'finesse'

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace thinks that Sunday's showdown with the Ravens could be filled with more "finesse" than usual. The rivalry has recently been characterized by big hits and physicality, but both teams will be without some of their best players.

The Ravens will be missing linebacker Ray Lewis, while the Steelers will be without safety Troy Polamalu. But it's not just the defensive players who will be different. Now that Hines Ward has retired, the Steelers receiving crew consists of smaller, quicker wideouts like Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders.

As a result, Wallace says, "It's more of finesse Ravens-Steelers game now because there's a lot more skinny guys." Other players have told the media that they expect Sunday to be as physical and intense as any of the previous matchups.

Last season, Wallace did very well against the Ravens, grabbing 12 catches for 175 yards and a touchdown in two games.
