Charlie Batch has been playing professional football since 1998.
In that time, he's never had a comeback as dramatic as the one he orchestrated over the second half of the Steelers' 23-20 win over Baltimore in Week 13.
It appeared over, despite Batch's modest efforts to that point. In a game highlighted by the heroics of Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers defense, and recently, by Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense, Batch directed the Steelers to what seemed impossible after a rough first half in which the Steelers managed nearly as many failed possessions - three 3-and-outs and one interception - as it did points - six.
The Steelelers trailed 13-3 in the first half.
Batch took over after the interception. He morphed into a quarterback maybe without Roethlisberger's mobility, or Flacco's arm. He darted passes to his fallen-to-earth receiving corps - Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders in particular.
Overall, he was 8-for-8 on his final eight throws for 72 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown pass to tight end Heath Miller that could be realistically described as the biggest play of the Steelers season.
