CLEVELAND -- A short bus ride into Ohio put Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers back in the fast lane. Puma Creepers Blanche .The playoffs remain a possible destination.LeVeon Bell scored on a 1-yard touchdown run -- long after time expired in the first half -- and Pittsburghs defense recorded eight sacks as the Steelers snapped a four-game losing streak, 24-9 Sunday over the winless Cleveland Browns.The Steelers (5-5) scored eight points with zeroes showing on the clock before halftime after they were awarded two extra plays because of defensive penalties against the Browns (0-11), who also lost rookie quarterback Cody Kessler with a concussion.Pittsburghs win, coupled with Baltimores loss to Dallas, pushed the Steelers back into a tie for first place in the AFC North with the Ravens (5-5).Roethlisberger tied to downplay the victory, but there was no denying its importance.We just won a game, honestly, thats the approach we have to have, Big Ben said. It really doesnt mean anything. It means we won a football game.The Steelers did it by playing Steelers football -- running the ball, stopping the run and physically punishing the Browns.After they knocked Kessler from the game, defensive tackle Javon Hargrave recovered a fumble by Browns backup QB Josh McCown for a TD with 3:36 left to seal Pittsburghs win. The Steelers came in with a league-low 13 sacks before unloading on the Browns.On a bitter blustery day, where throwing was difficult, Bell finished with a season-high 146 yards rushing as the Steelers improved to 2/3 on the road and avoided an embarrassing loss to the NFLs worst team.We knew with the weather we had today that he was going to have to be big for us, said Roethlisberger, who improved to 20-2 in starts against Cleveland, still paying for not drafting the Ohio native in 2004.Making it worse, Roethlisbergers 10 wins in Cleveland match Derek Anderson for the most home wins by a Browns quarterback since 1999.Kessler sustained a concussion -- his second this season -- late in the third quarter. Kessler was being dragged down when he was hit by Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who launched himself and was called for unnecessary roughness. Its not clear if Kessler was hurt by Timmons or when his head hit the turf.Brown coach Hue Jackson said Kesslers season could be over.Were definitely going to talk to our medical staff, Jackson said. This is about a young mans career and future. We have to do the right thing.Jackson didnt think Timmons play was dirty.This is football, he said. This is a tough sport. I dont think they were border line.Pittsburgh dominated the first half, but only led 6-0 before the strange final moments.Starting at the Cleveland 41, Roethlisberger drove the Steelers to the Browns 3 with 8 seconds left. On second down, Roethlisbergers pass to Antonio Brown in the end zone was incomplete as time ran out.However, Browns defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun was called for holding, giving Pittsburgh another chance.Again, Roethlisberger looked for Brown, who was dragged to the ground by star cornerback Joe Haden. Pass interference was called and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stayed aggressive and Bell bowled over the goal line to make it 12-0.Thats the mentality that coach has and the confidence he has in us, Roethlisberger said. We actually called a pass plan on that, and I ran to the sideline and told coach (offensive coordinator Todd) Haley, `No we need to run this because the boys up front want to run it. So we changed the play at the very last minute and LeVeon got it in for us.STILL HOPEThree NFL teams previously went 0-11 before winning a game -- the 1975 Chargers, 1984 Bills, 2000 Chargers -- while seven had even worse starts.SUPER STEELERPittsburgh linebacker James Harrison is the clubs career sack leader.Harrison drilled Kessler in the third quarter to pass Jason Gildon (77) for the most sacks in the Steelers storied defensive history. Its likely Hall of Famers Joe Greene, Jack Lambert or Jack Ham could have more, but the NFL didnt recognize sacks as an official statistic until 1982.Harrison teared up in the locker room afterward.GRIFFIN GETTING CLOSEBrowns quarterback Robert Griffin III, who has been out since breaking a bone in his left shoulder in the season opener, did some conditioning drills, threw -- and even drop kicked a ball through the uprights -- before the game.Griffin has been cleared to practice this week and will undergo another medical exam to see if he can take contact.If he continues to progress, Griffin will likely start one of Clevelands final five games. The Browns have a bye on Dec. 4, which would give RG3 additional time to get ready.UP NEXTSteelers: At Colts on Thanksgiving night.Browns: Host Giants next Sunday.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Puma Rihanna Beige.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- LeSean McCoy scored twice, including a career-best 75-yard run, and the Buffalo Bills won their second in a row by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-21 on Sunday.Tyrod Taylors 16-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 10:46 remaining put the Bills ahead for good during a second half in which the teams traded the lead five times. Taylor also scored on a 7-yard run in helping to keep Buffalo in the playoff hunt.The Bills (6-5) won for the second straight week when trailing at halftime after doing so just once last season.Buffalo trailed the Jaguars 7-6 after two quarters on Sunday, and overcame a two-point deficit in a 16-12 win at Cincinnati last week.Taylor also produced just the second fourth-quarter comeback of his career, and improved to 2-11 when the Bills trail by four or more at any point in a game.The Jaguars (2-9) lost for the sixth straight game -- their longest skid since opening the 2014 season at 0-6.The game was decided with four minutes left, when the Jaguars were unable to convert a fourth-and-9 at the Buffalo 46. Blake Bortles hit Marquise Lee on a crossing pattern over the middle, but he was limited to a 4-yard gain.The Bills then took over and ran out the clock.Bortles went 13 of 26 for 126 yards and two touchdowns, and also had a career-best 81 yards rushing.The Jaguars offense was hampered by injuries. Chris Ivory, who opened the scoring with a 2-yard run, was sidelined in the first half by a hamstring injury. And then Jacksonville lost receiver Allen Hurns, also with a hamstring injury while diving into the end zone on a 12-yard catch and run .Hurns touchdown put the Jaguars up 21-20 in the opening seconds of the fourth quarter.The Bills responded with Taylor leading an eight-play, 76-yard drive which he capped with a perfectly placed pass to Hunter at the goal line. Nike Air Huarache Pas Cher.

Taking the handoff, McCoy burst off right tackle and blew past defensive backs Jalen Ramsey and Tashuan Gipson.JAGS BIG OPENINGThe Jaguars snapped the NFLs longest active drought by scoring on their opening possession for the first time in 25 games. The streak began in Week 3 of the 2015 season, and featured the Jaguars combining for three field goals, punting 18 times and turning the ball over three times.Ivorys touchdown capped an 11-play, 75-yard drive spanning 6:45. The Jaguars converted three third-down chances, including their last one courtesy of a defensive holding penalty against Corey White on third-and-goal from the 3.WELCOME BACKSammy Watkins had three catches for 80 yards -- including a 62-yard catch -- in playing his first game in nine weeks since aggravating an injury to his surgically repaired left foot.INJURIESJaguars: Ivory (hamstring), WR Rashad Greene Sr. (Achilles) and FS Peyton Thompson (ankle) and Hurns (hamstring) did not return.
