02:19 AM ET 12.01 | Five quarters. That's all safety Troy Polamalu has played for the Steelers defense this season. Since then, his nagging calf injury has plagued his return, frustrating not only himself but fans as well. With the Ravens coming this Sunday and the Steelers' only saving grace so far this season (Ben Roethlisberger) out while still recovering from his shoulder and rib injury, they will certainly need a spark to help get the win. But is Polamalu just what the Steelers need to sneak out a win in Baltimore? Troy's been out almost all season. The week following his injury, a person couldn't look at Steelers coverage without being swamped with stats of the disparing diference in the Steelers record with and without Polamalu in the lineup. However, with back ups Will Allen and Ryan Mundy (and really it's been ALL Will Allen thus far) holding their own in Troy's absence, that record has slightly improved in the favor of the Steelers. In fact, the last two losses have been greatly attributed to the lack of offense while the defense has been playing lights out.

Nice Pick Cowher
