The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens are arguably the two best defenses in the NFL, with players like Polamalu, Reed, Harrison and Lewis.

Which Defense do you think is better?

steelers for sure...

this season the ravens are stuffed as they have lost their defensive coach and also lost two of their starting defensive players to the jets.

just Think that they can't be as good as they were and they have to Fade . plus Lewis is the Best so .... my peak interest was from about 2001 til 2007 so i'm not sure what the fucks going on at the Moment i hate New England with a passion though and that hasn't changed . If I knew you were a Steeler i wouldn't have walked into this .

I like Baltimore more. They run more interesting (and creative) blitz packages, and Ed Reed is one of the most entertaining defensive players in football. Pittsburgh's D is a bit more no-frills, but both tend to get the job done.

Baltimore,

just more depth in the chart. But all round Steelers due to their offence. Ravens need an offence to be a little more successful

they will still have ed reed and ray lewis but they have lost their defensive coach and a few others....

Like the Steelers, Baltimore have a pretty good record of getting solid contributions out of unheralded players. If their offense has improved this season, it will also reduce the slack on Reed, Lewis, etc. a bit.

Ravens are let down by their offense compared to the Steelers. Their offense isn't terrible, but is led by an inexperienced QB with not really any other impact players. The Steelers have Ben Roethlisberger to control a game with experienced WR Hines Ward and up-and-coming Santonio Holmes, along with a mix of youth and experience in the Running Backs.

This puts more pressure on the defense on the Ravens, but they are still able to produce the goods.
