Steelers take down Browns despite Roethlisberger injury; win 14-3

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played through a high left ankle sprain to lead the Steelers to a 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night.

Roethlisberger passed for 280 yards and two touchdowns, including a 79-yard scoring strike to Antonio Brown with 2:52 remaining, to help Pittsburgh win for the eighth time in its last nine games.

Roethlisberger went to the locker room for X-rays following a gruesome second-quarter sack, but he returned to start the second half, passing for 178 yards after the break. Big Ben might need someone who has gone to one of the sports medicine schools

The Steelers (10-3) moved a half-game ahead of the Baltimore Ravens in the race for the AFC North title.

Colt McCoy passed for 209 yards, but he also threw two interceptions for the Browns (4-9), who lost for the 15th time in their last 16 meetings with the division rival Steelers.
