Steelers hold off Browns
Roethlisberger passed for 280 yards and two touchdowns, including a 79-yard scoring strike to Antonio Brown with 2:52 remaining to help the Steelers win for the eighth time in their last nine games.
Roethlisberger went to the locker room for X-rays following a second-quarter sack but returned to start the second half.
Pittsburgh (10-3) moved a half-game ahead of Baltimore in the race for the AFC North title.
Colt McCoy passed for 209 yards but also threw two interceptions for the Browns (4-9), who lost for the 15th time in their last 16 meetings with the Steelers.
