Steelers run roughshod over Bengals

The Pittsburgh Steelers manhandled the Cincinnati Bengals, earning a 30-20 victory that included a touchdown catch and punt return for a score by wide receiver Antonio Brown.

At one point, the Steelers led by 24 points over the first-place Bengals.

"It's always great when you dictate the game and play ahead and not play catch up," Brown said.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was poised, completing 20 of 25 passes for 191 yards, one touchdown and an interception while rookie running back Le'Veon Bell generated 117 yards of total offense.

"We didn't make anything happen," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "We didn't make any plays, create any opportunities."

The Bengals, who are 6-0 at Paul Brown Stadium, close out the season with two consecutive home games.

Huber broke his jaw on a hit by Steelers rookie Terence Garvin, forcing kicker Mike Nugent into action as the punter.

Plus, Bengals linebacker James Harrison left the game with a concussion.
