In Week 1, Dennis Dixon showed to be a fine temporary replacement for the starting QB. After suffering an injury during Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans, Dixon was replaced by former Lion starter Charlie Batch.
Batch proved to be a valuable asset to the team, leading the Steelers to an undefeated winning streak up until Week 4. The Baltimore Ravens faced the Steelers in Pittsburgh this week and defeated them 17-14. The Steelers fell to three and one, putting them below the Ravens in the AFC North standings.
Holding an impressive record of 3-1 with their third string quarterback, the Steelers will now be heading into their Bye Week. After that, Big Ben returns. Who knows what kind of impact this will have on their team? Will their beloved starter bring all he has to offer?
If the Steelers defense keeps this up, and Ben returns just as powerful and ready as ever, the Pittsburgh Steelers could go a long way this season.
