The Pittsburgh Steelers clinched a 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns at the expense of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who completed the game with an injured ankle.
The Steelers left it late to secure victory following a first-possession score, which temporarily pushed them in front of Baltimore for the division lead.
Cleveland did get points on the board with a go-ahead touchdown in just over three minutes of remaining play, after Pittsburgh's Colt McCoy was intercepted by William Gay in the end zone on third down.
Despite an attempted fightback from the Browns, an Antonio Brown touchdown, resulting from a Roethlisberger 79-yard pass sealed victory for the Steelers.
Roethlisberger suffered an ankle problem in the second quarter and was forced to leave the field for the rest of the half. However, the quarterback returned to action in the start of the third quarter and played through the pain until the final whistle.
