Charlie Batch rebounded from last week’s disaster, and led the Steelers to a 23-20 win over the Ravens.
The Steelers only gave it away twice, a departure from last week’s eight-turnover disaster of a loss to the Browns.
It stopped a two-game losing streak for the Steelers (7-5), and breathed some life back into a team that looked adrift without Ben Roethlisberger. The Ravens had previously won all four meetings since 2005 when the Steelers starting quarterback didn’t play.
Shaun Suisham’s 46-yard field goal as time expired was the clincher, but Batch was so cool down the stretch, on a day when the Steelers appeared set to lose their third straight.
Batch doesn’t have much of an arm anymore, but he completed all eight passes on their final two drives, including the game-tying touchdown to Heath Miller. He also took several brutal shots late in the game, but kept bouncing back.
The Steelers did the same, holding the Ravens (9-3) to 177 passing yards.
