Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH, Pa) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers rallied from 11 points down at the start of the fourth quarter to defeat the Tennessee Titans 27-24 on Monday Night Football. 

Coming off an upset loss to the New York Jets last week the Steelers continued to show signs of playing down to their opponent.  With an opportunity to put the Titans in hole with less than one minute to in the first half, Ben Roethlisberger tossed an interception to defensive back Jason McCourty. Tennessee immediately capitalized when rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger found a wide open Nate Washington streaking upfield for an 80 yard touchdown strike.

The Titans would enter halftime leading 17-13 and would assume a lead of 24-13 when late in the third quarter, Mettenberger connected with tight end Chase Coffman for a short touchdown. 

The Steelers would regroup as their defense remained firm and Roethlisberger began to find a groove connecting with his receivers on short and intermediate passes. Running back LeVeon Bell also carried the load as he rushed for 204 yards on 33 carries and added a touchdown. 

The Steelers are now 7-4 as they head into their bye week.

Second Quarter Outburst Lifts Steelers Past Houston

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers scored 24 points in the second quarter, including three touchdowns in less than 90 seconds, to pick up a 30-23 win over the Houston Texans on Monday night. It was the 16th straight victory for the Steelers on Monday Night Football.

Trailing 13-0 halfway through the second quarter, the Steelers (4-3) got on the board with a Shaun Suisham field goal at the 3:08 mark. Less than two minutes later, Ben Roethlisberger found Martavis Bryant for a 35-yard touchdown pass that brought Pittsburgh within three at 13-10.

What happened next changed the course of the game. Two plays after the touchdown, Houston's Arian Foster fumbled deep in his own territory to give the Steelers perfect field possession. Wide receiver Antonio Brown then delivered a three-yard pass to Lance Moore on a reverse, putting Pittsburgh ahead 17-13. Things only escalated for the Texans (3-4) when Ryan Fitzpatrick's pass was tipped an intercepted on the very next play.

That set-up another scoring drive for Pittsburgh, capped off by a Roethlisberger two-yard strike to Le'Veon Ball, making it a 24-13 ball game at halftime.

"You stand on the sidelines long enough, you will see explosions such as that," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "It was good to be on the good side of it."

The Steelers only mustered a pair of second-half field goals and had to hold off a late rally by the Texans. Houston pulled within a touchdown when Fitzpatrick and Foster connected for a touchdown pass with 1:31 remaining in regulation. However, the ensuing onside kick was recovered by Pittsburgh, who ran out the clock.

Steelers Stuff Bengals 30-20 

Pittsburgh Steelers/NFL(PITTSBURGH) --  Antonio Brown scored two touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers stuffed the Cincinnati Bengals 30-20 on Sunday night.

Brown caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger in the first quarter as the Steelers (6-8) opened up a 14-0 lead.  He added a 67-yard punt return touchdown as Pittsburgh snapped a two-game skid.

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

The Bengals (9-5) fell behind early and never recovered.  They were looking to move closer to a third consecutive playoff berth.  A win would have also given them the No. 2 seed in the AFC after New England (10-4) lost to Miami earlier in the day.

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

Andy Dalton threw for 230 yards and two scores in the loss.

Steelers Top Browns 14-3 on 'Thursday Night Football'

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- The more injured Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger gets, the better it seems he plays. Despite playing with a leg injury, Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a hard-fought win over their division rival Cleveland Browns.

During the second quarter, Roethlisberger took a sack and had to leave the game to get the injury checked out, leaving with the Steelers leading just 7-6. Roethlisberger had feared the leg was broken, but when the doctor informed him there was no break, that was all Big Ben needed to hear.

He returned in the second half without skipping a beat. He completed eight of his next 12 pass attempts in the second half, including a 79-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown, which sealed the win.

"It was one of the most painful things I've ever felt," Roethlisberger said after the win. "It felt like the middle of my leg was just, felt like my foot was outside of my leg."

Roethlisberger is now 13-1 in his career against the Browns.
