The Steelers need a win vs. Cleveland and wins by the Jets, Chiefs and Bengals to make the playoffs.
To this point, Pittsburgh is holding up its end of the bargain.
Le’Veon Bell’s five-yard TD run gave the Steelers a 14-0 second-quarter lead against the Browns on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh.
The Browns have had a pair of drives inside the Pittsburgh 30 end without points, with a lost fumble by Jason Campbell and a dropped fourth-down pass from Josh Cooper ending those potential scoring marches.
Ben Roethlisberger has thrown for 99 yards, including a nine-yard first-quarter TD pass to Jerricho Cotchery.
