Despite loss, Ravens still in control in AFC North

Updated:

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens remain poised to reach the postseason as AFC North champions - just like last year - in spite of their disappointing and unexpected loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Baltimore (9-3) could have clinched a playoff berth and eliminated the Steelers from the division race with a victory on Sunday. Instead, the Ravens had their 15-game home winning streak snapped with a 23-20 defeat.

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs left in the fourth quarter after hurting his upper right arm and could miss this Sunday's game against Washington. Coach John Harbaugh said Monday the injury "needs to be evaluated as far as possibly coming back and playing this week or not."

Baltimore leads Pittsburgh (7-5) and Cincinnati (7-5) by two games in the AFC North with four to play.
