The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Cleveland Browns in Week 17, winning at home by a score of 24-10.

Ben Roethlisberger and his offense only managed 212 total yards, but he threw three timely touchdowns—one of which went to Plaxico Burress.

The Steelers defense forced four turnovers against a depleted Browns offense that was playing without Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson, and the Browns couldn't get much going on offense as a result. 

Little-known quarterback Thaddeus Lewis acquitted himself well in defeat, passing for 204 yards with one touchdown and one interception while dealing with heavy pressure all game long.

He wasn't helped by his receivers, though, as Josh Gordon and Travis Benjamin both lost fumbles.

James Harrison emerged as a big playmaker for the Steelers in this game, tallying 11 tackles and one sack. He was joined by Lawrence Timmons, who pitched in with two sacks and a recovered fumble. 

Both teams are out of the playoff picture, and both will need to retool for next season to compete with the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North.
