Batch rebounds as Steelers stun rival Ravens

BALTIMORE -- Shaun Suisham kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired, and the Pittsburgh Steelers rallied behind Charlie Batch to shock the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 on Sunday.

Playing without injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for a third consecutive week, the Steelers turned to 37-year-old Batch for the second game in a row. He went 25-of-36 passing for 276 yards and one touchdown, and he also moved the Steelers 61 yards before Suisham's game-winning kick.

Pittsburgh trailed 13-3 in the first half and 20-13 in the fourth quarter before coming back to win.

The Steelers (7-5) stopped a two-game losing streak and kept alive their slim hopes of overtaking the Ravens (9-3) in the AFC North. The teams split their two meetings this season.

The Ravens could have clinched a playoff berth with a victory. Instead, Baltimore had its 15-game home winning streak halted and also lost for the first time in 13 games against division foes.
