It was a day filled with wind, rain, cold air, and snow. A perfect setting for AFC North rivalry football. Both teams came in to this game with highly ranked defensive units, Cleveland being the 10th and Pittsburgh owning the top spot. It was a long, and hard fought battle that ended in favor of the Steelers. Both teams quarterbacks were out the previous weeks with nagging injuries, Ben Roethlisberger suffering for a high ankle sprain and Colt McCoy with a concussion. Ben would get the start, but McCoy's concussion prevented him from play giving the starting spot to backup quarterback, Seneca Wallace. Pittsburgh came out with a 13-9 win over Cleveland, and clinched the 5th Playoff spot in the American Football Conference.
Pittsburgh's offense played mediocre today, but weather conditions could have been to blame. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played just about as well as the wind would let him. He completed 13 of his 24 passes for only 130 yards. That would set his seaso...
BEST OF MAXIM
In all too familiar fashion, the Cleveland Browns wrapped up their season with the stands filled with black and urine-colored clothing. I wasn’t there, so I can’t comment on the smell, but I have some suspicions. Ultimately those kinds of verbal barbs are all we as a city can muster because the Steelers won the game 13-9 despite a chance to win it with a hail mary as time...
The Pittsburgh Steelers had no problems getting by without Ben Roethlisberger in their latest game, and there's a chance they could give their ailing quarterback another week to rest during their regular-season finale.
The potential for an even more significant week off may sway that decision.
A first-round bye is in sight for the Steelers with a victory over the host Cleveland...
CLEVELAND In a game when the Steelers had a hobbled quarterback, lost their star running back, they still found a way to keep the Cleveland Browns out of the end zone and hold on for a 13-9 to finish the regular season 12-4.
As the Wild Card, the Steelers will travel to Denver to take on the Broncos next week. Meanwhile, the Browns finish their season at 4-12 (0-6 in the AFC North...
“We played sub-par today, but got a win. We need to step up next week and get better — a lot better.” — James Harrison
If these Browns were a one-term president, they’d be James Buchanan. … [A] team where as many players (nine) had concussions as scored touchdowns this season. — Terry Pluto

The Pittsburgh Steelers had another close game to finish out the 2011 regular season, but they held on to beat the Cleveland Browns 13-9 Sunday at Cleveland Municipal Stadium.

It doesn’t really matter how they pulled it off, as it was a season of ups and downs and lots of hangovers, but the Steelers ended up 12-4 for the regular season, secured the #5 seed in the AFC, and are heading to Denver on Sunday, January 8 at 4:30 p.m.
The 13-9 win over the Cleveland Browns pretty much culminated this rocky season. It seems that the Steelers have lost running...
Ok, here's the deal - what follows is not going to be what I'd typically refer to as a "preview."For three reasons...1) Didn't write a preview for Bengals, Browns (Round 1), or Rams, but did for 49ers, and look how that worked out2) When you're reading this it will either be New Year's Eve day or New Year's day (if it gets read at all...
It’s the final game of the year, and who else would you want to come calling other than the Pittsburgh Steelers? The Steelers sit at 11-4 with a lot to play for still. If the Cincinnati Bengals make it into the playoffs by virtue of beating the Baltimore Ravens at home, a Steelers win makes them the #2 seed (and depending on New England’s result, possibly the top seed) with...
