PITTSBURGH

Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers gave their critics and the Detroit Lions a vivid reminder on Sunday.

The window might be closing on the Steelers and their enigmatic quarterback. It’s not shut. Not yet.

Roethlisberger passed for 367 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the final 5 minutes as the Steelers rallied to beat the Lions 37-27.

Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 147 yards and two scores and Pittsburgh’s defense rebounded from a horrific second quarter to shut out Detroit in the second half. The Steelers (4-6) have won two straight and kept the Lions (6-4) winless in Pittsburgh for 58 years and counting.
