The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens on a 42-yard kick by Shaun Suisham at the end of the game and won by the final score of 23-20.

With the victory, the Steelers prevent the Ravens from clinching a playoff spot and remain alive in the AFC North.

Charlie Batch, an emotional Batch, was seen on the sidelines hugging Ben Roethlisberger following the conclusion of the game.

Batch finished the night with 276 yards, one touchdown and one interception and went 25/36 passing.

It was a close game that featured scoring in comparison to their first matchup.

And what a game it was.

The Steelers and Ravens exchanged points, leads and turnovers.

In the fourth quarter and decisive quarter, Ed Reed intercepted Batch who was going to the end zone. Reed leaped and brought it down.

However, a couple of plays later, Flacco was sacked and stripped by Harrison. The Steelers recovered by Ziggy Hood at the 27.

Batch then hit Heath Miller with a seven-yard touchdown. Miller reached out as he was running out of bounds and a split second before tapping his right foot out of bounds.

The Steelers responded to the Ray Rice as he rushed for a 34-yard touchdown which gave the Ravens a 20-13 lead following a Steelers turnover.

That was a key to the Steelers' struggles in this game. They turned the ball over three times. Batch threw for three interceptions and the Ravens' recovered a fumble.

Flacco seemed to struggled on deep passes as he continuously aired it out, but to no avail as he either overthrew receivers or couldn't beam it in to them strong enough and defenders broke up the plays.

The Ravens take on the tough Washington Redskins in Week 14, while the Steelers face the San Diego Chargers.
