The Pittsburgh Steelers finally cured their road woes on Sunday night thanks to contributions from unlikely places, including third-string running back Jonathan Dwyer, a patchwork offensive line and beleaguered cornerback Ike Taylor.
Dwyer, starting in place of Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman, ran for 122 yards. The line, missing starting center Maurkice Pouncey and right tackle Marcus Gilbert, kept Cincinnati's defense at bay long enough for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to pass for 278 yards and a score.
Taylor, coming off one of the worst performances of his career, held Cincinnati wide receiver A.J. Green to just one reception.
The Steelers (3-3) ended a four-game road losing streak dating back to last season and with Baltimore suddenly reeling are in position to make a run at the AFC North title.
