Steelers eliminated from North race

Posted Dec 10, 2009

Posted: 11:50 p.m.

Thursday night proved to be one of those rare moments in Bengaldom when the populace saluted the Cleveland Browns for their 13-6 victory over the reeling Steelers in the ice box on Lake Erie.

It was Pittsburgh's fifth straight loss and dropped the Steelers to 6-7, eliminating them from the race for the AFC North title with three games left. The next Bengals victory or Ravens loss gives the Bengals their second division title in five seasons. Baltimore, 6-6, hosts Detroit on Sunday at 1 p.m., as the Bengals play in Minnesota.

The Browns survived a 90-yard passing day from quarterback Brady Quinn with eight sacks of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh allowed 171 yards rushing and didn't have an answer for wide receiver Josh Cribbs as a runner. With running back Chris Jennings eking out 73 yards on 20 carries, Cribbs ripped off 87 yards on eight carries. His 55-yard punt return also led to a field goal.
