Who knew that Charlie Batch would wind up a savior in New England on Sunday. The Steelers’ third-string quarterback helped lead his team past the Ravens — despite some accuracy issues — which helped the Patriots vault into the No. 2 seed in the AFC. At 9-3, the Patriots, Ravens and Broncos are all tied in the AFC standings, but the tiebreakers currently work in New England’s favor since the Pats have the best record against AFC opponents, according to NFL.com. This will all change when Peyton Manning and the Broncos journey to Baltimore in Week 15, though. If the Patriots win out, they’ll be rooting for the Broncos over the Ravens. Since that game will break the three-way tie, the tiebreaker would go to head-to-head record, which would favor New England over Denver, but not over Baltimore. The season’s a long way from being over and the Patriots will obviously be concentrating on beating the Texans and 49ers in consecutive weeks, rather than where they currently stand in the playoff...

Ed Reed Was Talking Trash About Charlie Batch After Losing To Charlie Batch

Look, by no means do I know everything there is to know about football, but even I know one of the cardinal rules of the sport is “if your team just lost a game to Charlie Batch, you should probably just shut the f*ck up until further notice.” Apparently Ed Reed is unaware of this bedrock principle of the game he’s spent a lifetime playing.

Batch leads Steelers to last-second win at Baltimore

BALTIMORE -- Charlie Batch turns 38 on Wednesday, but the Pittsburgh Steelers' third-string quarterback looked ageless Sunday.

While he didn’t officially give a status for...

Rabbit Punches: Charlie Batch Wins, The Headline That Doubles as the Joke

A Rabbit Punch has two meanings, both of which describe the nature of the article. 1. A series of fast punches. 2. An illegal punch to the back of the head between the skull and the first vertebrate that can cause permanent damage to the nerves or death. The New York Jets defeat the Arizona Cardinals 7-6, in a game in which the most intriguing headline documented who came out of...

AFC North… Up For Grabs?

Come to the NFL’s version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and see what the Candy Man might be conjuring. Few of us called that Charlie Batch would beat the Ravens on Sunday… in one of the toughest stadiums around to get a road win. But he did. And the Steelers just may have moved the division to the cusp of the tipping point in the process. A lot has to go right — or wrong...

Steelers rally to snap losing skid

Ben Roethlisberger couldn't have done it any better. Third-string quarterback Charlie Batch directed a 61-yard drive in the closing minutes, and Shaun Suisham kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The Steelers...

Deck stacked against Steelers, how will they respond?

Round 2 of the best rivalry in the entire NFL kicks off today at 4:25pm as our Steelers and the hated Baltimore Ravens take to the field of battle at M&T Bank Stadium. We’ve been saying since the Steelers were sitting at 2-3 that every game was a must win game.

Ravens head to the locker room with the lead

On their final drive of the half, the Steelers got within seven points of the Ravens, but it could have been worse.

Steelers Versus Ravens Game Rewind – Second Half Notes – Week 13

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 Sunday and below are my second half notes from the game. Here are my first half notes in case you missed them. On the first offensive play of the second half Terrence Cody pushes Doug Legursky back into the pockets and gets the pass deflection. Not a good start. Haloti Ngata abuses Maurkice Pouncey on the second play, but...
