Shaun Suisham's 42-yard field goal on the game's final play lifted the Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steelers to a 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. In a tie game, the Steelers forced a Baltimore punt with 6:14 remaining and took over at their own 15-yard line. Backup quarterback Charlie Batch, filling in for Roethlisberger, who has shoulder and rib injuries, led a 12-play, 61-yard drive. The key play was a 15-yard Batch pass to Mike Wallace on third-and-7 at the Steelers' 18-yard line. Pittsburgh's final three running plays netted no yards before Suisham's winning kick at the gun. Batch finished 25-for-36 for 276 yards. He threw one touchdown pass and was intercepted once while helping the Steelers (7-5) improve to 1-2 without Roethlisberger. The Ravens (9-3) would have wrapped up a postseason berth had they held onto the 20-13 lead they owned entering the fourth quarter. Batch's 7-yard touch...

Ben Roethlisberger threw what Tomlin described as ”successfully” on Monday and they will continue to evaluate his progress during practice this week and see what happens. While he didn’t officially give a status for...

While the spotlight is currently shining with good reason on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch following the improbable 23-20 win Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens, one player that isn't getting enough credit for his performance is rookie Kelvin Beachum, who made his first NFL start at right tackle in Baltimore with Mike Adams sidelined by an ankle injury.

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...
