Other than a Ravens win and the "10,000 yard stare on the face of 70,000 fans....

 

MUllITTSBURGH -- Light snow, temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s and moderate winds are predicted for the Ravens-Steelers game at Heinz Field.

Forecasters said the snow should not accumulate more than an inch, but could start falling before the 4:30 p.m. EST kickoff on Saturday.

 

Winds in the 12-15 mph are expected -- perhaps enough to influence field-goal attempts at a stadium that can be tricky for kickers even during ideal weather.

 

The stadium has a new grass field that was installed at the NHL's expense following the Capitals-Penguins Winter Classic on Jan. 1.

 

This is the third surface at Heinz Field this season, as the sod also was replaced after four high school football playoff games were played there Thanksgiving weekend. The Steelers played three games on that field.

Don't expect any touchbacks from Cundiff...can't plant on that shitty sod.

Why oh why would any team not move to the artificial turf if that's what happens with the crap? Just doesn't make sense. It's costs more and it's a huge pain in the @$$.

Its going to be a brand new surface, from what I hear the NHL replaced the entire field after their New Years Day hockey match.

 

I'm sure it took real good in this freezing weather.
