Steelers 23, Ravens 20

The Steelers finally managed to eke out a win without Ben Roethlisberger, as they knocked off division rival Baltimore 23-20 in a come from behind thriller.  They won despite losing the turnover battle once again, 3-2, and despite rushing for under 100 yards.

The game see sawed back and forth and the Ravens took the lead late in the third quarter on a 34-yard TD run by Ray Rice to go ahead 13-20.

The fourth quarter was all Steelers, as they scored a TD about half way through the fourth on a 7-yard TD pass from Charlie Batch to Heath Miller to tie the game at 20-20.  Batch finished the day 25-36 for 276 with 1 TD and 1 INT.

Shaun Suisham connected on a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Steelers the win.

The Steelers defense was effective, holding Joe Flacco to a sub-par day as he finished 16 of 34 for 188 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT, and he was sacked 3 times.
