Isaac Redman replaced an injured Rashard Mendenhall and ran for a touchdown as Pittsburgh limped into the AFC playoffs with a 13-9 win Sunday over Cleveland, the Steelers' 16th victory in 17 games against the Browns. Redman scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for the Steelers (12-4), who finished tied with Baltimore for first in the AFC North but lost the tiebreaker because the Ravens beat them twice. The Steelers had to survive two fumbles by Redman in the second half and a pass into the end zone by the Browns (4-12) on the final play that was batted down. Mendenhall hurt his right knee in the first quarter on a short run and didn't return. His status for the postseason is unknown. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed for 221 yards on a severely sprained ankle.
