However, that's not the play that will stick with Kruger from a 23-20 loss to the Steelers on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.
During the first play of the Steelers' game-winning drive, Batch threw a 10-yard completion to Mike Wallace as Kruger crashed into him late from behind and was flagged for roughing the passer. The 15-yard infraction gave the Steelers a first down at the Ravens' 19-yard line and eventually led to the game-winning field goal from Shaun Suisham.
"I had a clear shot at him," Kruger said. "I just threw my hands to high and shouldn't have made it that close. It was a big mistake on my part for even making it a possible call, and I can't believe I put my teammates in that situation. There's not much to say."
Kruger said he disagreed with the call.
"I didn't think so, but I saw out of the corner of my eye the referee throw the flag," said Kruger, who leads the Ravens with 6 1/2 sacks. "I'm just disappointed in myself, and I can't put my teammates in that situation."
