Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Shaun Suisham buried a 42-yard field goal as time expired on Sunday and the Pittsburgh Steelers exacted a bit of revenge against the Baltimore Ravens with a 23-20 triumph at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens defeated the Steelers, 13-10, in Pittsburgh just two weeks ago, but third-string quarterback Charlie Batch, making his second straight start in place of Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, was able to chew up the final 6:14 of game clock with a 12-play, 61-yard march that culminated in Suisham's game-winning kick.

Batch finished 25-of-36 passing for 276 yards and a touchdown with one interception. Jonathan Dwyer carried the ball 16 times for 49 yards and a score for Pittsburgh (6-6), which bounced back from an eight-turnover performance in a 20-14 loss to Cleveland last weekend.

Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco completed 16-of-34 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown with one interception, while Ray Rice rushed for 78 yards and score on 12 carries for the Ravens (9-3), who had won 16 consecutive home games since a 13-10 setback to Pittsburgh on Dec. 5, 2010.
