The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens will waste no time renewing their rivalry as they kickoff their 2011 NFL season today.

The Steelers won two of three games last season, including the Divisional Round playoff game, and will look to gain an early edge in the AFC North. Meanwhile, Joe Flacco will look to change his fortunes against Ben Roethlisberger, who he is 0-and-6 against.

Not out of the ordinary, there was a war of words between the two teams this offseason, as LaMarr Woodley declared that Flacco would never win a Super Bowl, which solicited a response from Flacco.

Ray Rice joined in the fun when making a remark on Twitter regarding Hines Ward's DUI arrest, which resulted in a short back-and-forth with Ryan Clark.

But now, the time for talking is over and it is time for the hitting to start.

We get a Week 1 treat with the best rivalry in the NFL kicking off at 1:00 p.m.

Updated Score: Ravens 14, Steelers 7
