Steelers vs. Ravens 2012: Resilient Charlie Batch leads comeback victory

US PRESSWIRE

Reaction from the Steelers' 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens and a look at the players who led Pittsburgh to the victory.

For the second time in three weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens fought out a game decided by just a field goal. On Sunday, however, the Steelers came away with the win they had not been able to get in Week 11.

With Ben Roethlisberger still out of the lineup injured, veteran quarterback Charlie Batch led the Steelers to a 23-20 victory in a strong second half. In his postgame piece on winners and losers from the win, Neal Coolong from SB Nation's Behind the Steel Curtain wrote:

Batch was the paradigm of resilience, fending off a self-described poor game in Week 12, and even a poor first half against Baltimore, giving the Steelers an edge in a game where they dominated the Ravens over the final half.

Coolong also hailed the defensive play of linebacker James Harrison, saying:

Baltimore did an excellent job with Harrison after the veteran smoked the Ravens several times in their first meeting this season. Harrison did, however, come up with yet another game-altering play against the Ravens, notching his first forced fumble since, perhaps not coincidentally, Pittsburgh's Week 9 game against Baltimore in 2011. He now has three consecutive games with a sack.
