Steelers Officially Name Dennis Dixon the Starter at QB vs Baltimore

Eagles Steelers Football reports that the team has officially named Dennis Dixon as the starter tomorrow night vs the Ravens:

Dennis Dixon will start at quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers when they face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium. The decision to start Dixon, a second-year pro from Oregon who was the team’s fifth-round draft choice in 2008, was made by Coach Mike Tomlin in the aftermath of a game in Kansas City in which Ben Roethlisberger and Charlie Batch were injured. Roethlisberger took a blow to the head in overtime, and then Batch broke a bone in his left wrist during a game the Steelers would lose, 27-24, in overtime.
