Ravens defense prepares for both Batch and Big Ben

Updated:

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Less than two weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens beat fleet-footed quarterback Byron Leftwich and the Pittsburgh Steelers to take control of the AFC North.

In the rematch Sunday, the Ravens will face a quarterback with a different skill set. Whether it will be soft-tossing Charlie Batch or the gritty Ben Roethlisberger remains to be seen.

Batch played last week in a loss to Cleveland and will start Sunday if Roethlisberger is still bothered by rib and shoulder injuries.

The Ravens (9-2) don't know how the situation will play out, so they're watching film of both quarterbacks.

Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday, "We'll do the same thing we did last time. We'll prepare for their offense."

Baltimore can clinch a playoff berth with a win over the desperate Steelers (6-5).
