From Sports Illustrated:

Browns Stadium, Cleveland, OH

The Pittsburgh Steelers hope two familiar faces can help them bounce back from their first defeat in more than a month.

With veteran Charlie Batch under center and Plaxico Burress back where his career began, the visiting Steelers look to continue their dominance over the snake-bit Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Pittsburgh (6-4) has a firm grasp on a wild-card spot, but there is certainly reason for concern as injuries continue to mount. Already without safety Troy Polamalu , quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will miss a second straight game with a sprained right shoulder and dislocated first rib.

Backup QB Byron Leftwich is also out after suffering a broken rib Sunday night when the Steelers' four-game winning streak ended with a 13-10 loss to Baltimore.

Enter the 37-year-old Batch, who is 5-2 while starting in place of Roethlisberger over the last decade. He was an economical 15 of 22 for 208 yards in a 27-0 win over St. Louis in his last start Dec. 24.

Batch was 13 of 19 for 150 yards and ran for a score in his only previous start versus Cleveland, a 34-21 Pittsburgh home win Nov. 13, 2005.

"Charlie's a great quarterback, and he's also been in the league for some time now," Pittsburgh cornerback Keenan Lewis said. "He knows the offense upside down (inside out), so if we have to rely on Charlie, we know he could get in there and win games."

If receiver Antonio Brown misses a third straight game with a bad ankle, Batch could find himself throwing often to Burress. The 35-year-old receiver signed with the Steelers on Tuesday to help a receiving corps that is down to three healthy bodies.

Burress, who had two 1,000-yard seasons while with Pittsburgh from 2000-2004, caught 45 passes for 612 yards and tied for the team lead with eight touchdowns for the New York Jets in 2011.

"He's in really good physical condition based on the workout I saw (Tuesday)," coach Mike Tomlin said. "He's got very good body control for a big man. He can drop his weight at break points and obviously he's no stranger to football."

While Tomlin does not expect offensive coordinator Todd Haley to change the playbook much with Batch and Burress in the mix, the Steelers must execute better on third down after going 5 for 17 against the Ravens. Pittsburgh has converted on 49 percent of its third-down chances with Roethlisberger on the field.

The Steelers also could rely more on running the ball against a Cleveland defense that ranks 24th with 125.3 rushing allowed yards per game.

After missing four straight contests with an Achilles' injury, Rashard Mendenhall ran 11 times for 33 yards last weekend. He hasn't gained more than 84 in his last six games versus Cleveland.

Teammate Jonathan Dwyer , who has a team-leading 410 rushing yards, is also expected to see time.

Tomlin hopes his team's stout defense will take some of the pressure of the offense, which has scored one TD since Roethlisberger was injured in third quarter of a 16-13 win over Kansas City on Nov. 12. The Steelers are first in the NFL with 259.1 yards allowed and fifth at 19.0 points given up per contest.

Pittsburgh has won 22 of 24 against the Browns and outscored them 96-31 during a four-game winning streak in the series, with Cleveland managing two touchdowns in those contests. The Steelers have taken two straight and 13 of 15 in Cleveland.

The Browns (2-8) found the end zone twice last Sunday but blew a 13-point halftime lead en route to a 23-20 overtime loss at Dallas. Since 2010, Cleveland has lost an NFL-leading 18 games by seven or fewer points, including five this season.

"We just have to find a way to finish," coach Pat Shurmur said. "We have a whole locker room full of winners. This whole organization is full of winners. We just have to put it all together and do it."

Brandon Weeden threw a pair of TD passes to Ben Watson and was not intercepted while Trent Richardson just missed his third straight 100-yard rushing game with 95. However, the Browns committed two penalties for 50 yards on Dallas' tying drive in the fourth quarter.

Cleveland is 0-5 this season without star cornerback Joe Haden , who missed last week's game with an oblique injury. Haden, however, returned to practice Wednesday and could play Sunday.

Is Heyward getting the start at DE for Ziggy? He made an immediate impact when he was in there and produced half of Ziggy's totals on the year in 3 quarters (tackles, pressures, etc)

Atlanta Dan
11-25-2012, 12:18 PM
This from Ed.B. of the P-G pregame

Rashard Mendenhall is likely to start at halfback, meaning the Steelers will not go with their most productive back, Jonathan Dwyer, and likely will again try to keep their legs fresh, or divvy things up among the three of them, including Isaac Redman. Dwyer should be starting. He leads the team with 410 yards rushing and his 4.6-yard average per carry is a full yard more than Mendenhall and Redman.

3rd and 19 why the fuck do you run it?? GOD BATCH sucks today.

you'd run it even with Ben in there, live to fight another day

just because you have 19 yards to get a first down doesn't mean you have to get that first down to win the game, the punt and field position game can be just as important

unfortunately the ball was fumbled but that play would have at least bought Butler some breathing room for a punt

that being said, it really does feel like the offense is being overly managed and that is only maybe at 30-40% operational capacity and that we really don't stand a chance to win this way

Haley has to run some play action on first down. Mix it up a little.

Play action requires that the D respect your playmaking abilities. It would result in a loss if we tried it right now.

I actually laughed out loud during the week listening to people clamoring for Batch.

He's one of the leagues absolute worst backup QB's..

OUR SEASON IS OVER! WE HAVE NO GOOD QB'S AND IF WE LOSE TO A TEAM WITH ONLY 2 WINS KNOWING THE GAMES WE HAVE NEXT FEW WEEKS. VERY SAD.

No way....Byron looks like Unitas compared to Batch. he really wasn't that bad, at least we could run our offense with him and he made a few nice throws to Sanders downfield.

I"m not a big fan of Byron's......but at least i'm smart enough to know that he's WAYYYYYY better than Batch. you're right.

He is the thirds string QB

It would help if Leftwich who could go through a game without breaking something

We're still OK. Just need Batch to settle down. If we can get heath and Sanders going on a few short routes it'll open things up for us.

Hey Batch, if you need a key play in the game for a 1st, and you arent as accurate as you should be, might not want to throw it to Mike Wallace. If Wallace has to give just a little effort, you are asking a little too much you know...

Another bad pass to Heath. Sigh.

that is the ONE receiver Batch HAS GOT to be able to connect with. Something has to give to loosen up the run defense.

Batch looks what he is, unbelievably rusty - two overthrows on easy ten-yarders to Miller. Nothing's working at the moment and it's difficult to see us putting much together for this game on the evidence so far.

Rust doesn't mean crap. An NFL QB should be able to make those passes in their sleep.

getting NO pressure on the QB since the beginning of the game. He's got all day back there. Their line is big, tough, and physical

fortmemphis
11-25-2012, 01:05 PM
the defense is going to wear down over time. The offense is not keeping the PIT D off the field resting.

Cleveland is gaining confidence with each play it seems. Nobody can get to Weeden. When all receivers are covered, Weeden has 5 mins back there to survey the field then run for 8 yd.

This is embarrassing. We might as well just give them the ball and step aside and let them run it in since we obviously aren't putting up a fight to keep the Browns at bay.

Does everyone realize, we would likely be winning this game if all we would have done is take 3 knees and punt every possession. That's how disgusting our offense has been.
