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 Sunday.
Playing without injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for a third straight week, the Steelers turned to the 37-year-old Batch for the second game in a row. He went 25 for 36 for 276 yards, threw a touchdown and 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.
Pittsburgh (7-5) snapped a two-game losing streak and kept alive its slim hopes of overtaking Baltimore (9-3) in the AFC North. The teams have split their games this season.
The Ravens could have clinched a playoff berth with a victory. Instead, Baltimore had its 15-game home winning streak snapped and also lost for the first time in 13 games against division foes.
