Aaron Wilson, Ravens reporter: The Ravens blew their chance to clinch a playoff berth as Joe Flacco was outdueled by 37-year-old journeyman Steelers third-string quarterback Charlie Batch. In the grand scheme of things, this defeat only delays the Ravens clinching a postseason berth for the fifth year in a row and an eventual AFC North crown. However, it was still a disturbing loss considering the absence of Ben Roethlisberger. The Ravens mismanaged the clock, timeouts and deserved to lose. The pass defense was shaky throughout. This marked the most yards Batch has thrown for during his time in Pittsburgh. The Ravens earned this loss as much as the Steelers pulled it out. Offensive guard Jah Reid struggled. And running back Ray Rice probably should have been involved more heavily considering the kind of success he and backup Bernard Pierce were having. Flacco simply didn't have it today. This marked the Ravens' first home loss in 16 games, breaking the longest current streak in the NFL.
