Anyone who has paid attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens rivalry over the past five years knows what to expect when these two teams get it on.

Steelers Injury Report: Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich, Charlie Batch

The Pittsburgh Steelers were already without their starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger when they took on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night, and now the team has announced it will likely starter third-stringer Charlie Batch against the Cleveland Browns due to Byron Leftwich’s fractured ribs.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#10)

Record: 6-4 Last week: 9 (-1) I have no idea what Mike Tomlin was thinking leaving Byron Leftwich out there when he was clearly hurt. There’s no real difference in talent level between him and Charlie Batch; in fact, I thought Batch should have been the starter in the first place after Ben Roethlisberger was ruled out. He’s a better fit for their quick throw, timing based offense...
