The Steelers defense forced four turnovers on a banged-up Browns offense and Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown strikes in the win. Despite being out gained by over 100 yards offensively, Pittsburgh did what they had to do to win the game.
The win over the Browns may not look like much on the surface, but it does keep a few streaks alive for the Steelers.
For starters, their 8-8 record means that the Steelers still have not had a losing season since 2003. That also means that Roethlisberger has still never had a losing season under his belt as the starting quarterback of the team.
Beating the Browns also means that the Steelers still have not been swept by their closest rivals since 1988, when Chuck Noll was still heading up the team.
