CLEVELAND -- Their horrendous start has long been forgotten, erased with an equally unexpected turnaround. The Steelers are in contention, right back where they belong. The playoffs are possible. Ben Roethlisberger threw touchdown passes to Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders and beat Cleveland for the 16th time as Pittsburgh, which opened the season with four straight losses, pushed deeper into the post-season picture with a 27-11 win over the Browns on Sunday. The Steelers (5-6) have climbed back with a one-game-at-a-time philosophy that theyre not about to abandon. "Im not looking around," Roethlisberger said, quickly dismissing any post-season speculation. "Its all about focus. This game is over now. Thats all we can control." Roethlisberger connected on a 41-yard TD pass to Brown in the first half, and hit Sanders on a 4-yarder in the third quarter for the Steelers, who only have a few days to get ready for a Thanksgiving game at Baltimore -- a matchup that didnt look as if it would be very meaningful a few weeks back. Roethlisberger finished 22 of 34 for 217 yards and improved to 16-1 against the Browns (4-7), who have lost five of six and seen a promising season turn into yet another miserable one. An Ohio native, Roethlisberger relishes beating a team from his home state. "Its homecoming, you know, a home game," he said. "So it does feel good." The Browns (4-7) lost starting quarterback Jason Campbell to a concussion in the third quarter when he was sacked by cornerback William Gay. Campbell was struck in the helmet by Gay and his head snapped back and banged the turf. He spent several moments flat on his back in the middle of the field, a symbolic moment for the Browns, who were smashed again by their AFC North rival. In his first season, Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has cycled through three starting quarterback because of injuries. He had to play Brandon Weeden again and may have to start the beleaguered second-year QB next week against Jacksonville. Weeden got booed when he came off the bench and things got tougher for him in the fourth, when Gay intercepted his pass and returned it 21 yards for a TD, giving the Steelers a 27-3 lead. "Youve just go to laugh at it," Weeden said of the booing. One bright spot for Cleveland was wide receiver Josh Gordon. He tied a team record with 14 receptions and set a club mark with 237 yards. After losing to Minnesota on Sept. 29, the Steelers looked old, slow and a shell of themselves. Things didnt look any better when they gave up 55 points and 610 yards to New England earlier this month. But with three straight wins, theyre where they usually are when the schedule moves toward December. "When we were 0-4, we knew we couldnt get four straight wins in one week," said rookie running back LeVeon Bell, who gained 80 yards. "We had to chip away at it and take it one game at a time. Now were 5-6, so were just going to keep grinding and grinding." The Steelers have turned one of the NFLs best rivalries into a laughable, one-sided affair, going 25-5 against the Browns since 1999. Campbells scary injury has Clevelands season on a familiar slide. He was levelled on the blind-side blitz by Gay, who came in untouched and dislodged the ball. As the QB was sprawled on the ground near midfield, Pittsburghs Will Allen scooped the ball and returned it to the Cleveland 4. As Campbell was checked by the Browns training staff, Roethlisberger came over and gave him a gentle tap on the helmet. "Thats respect," Roethlisberger said. "I respect him as a quarterback and as a player and a man so I just wanted to check on him." A wobbly Campbell was taken to the bench and examined before being helped onto a cart and driven to the locker room. Campbells head slumped as he was taken away. One play after Campbells fumble, Roethlisberger tossed his TD pass to Sanders, giving the Steelers a 20-3 lead. Pittsburgh spent the rest of the game running the clock, pinning the Browns deep and clearing out fans in FirstEnergy Stadium the way they almost always do. When the game ended, the Steelers were cheered as they walked toward their tunnel by a few hundred fans who couldnt have imagined them saving this season following their terrible start. Its all in the past. "Im not looking back," Roethlisberger said. NOTES: Roethlisberger improved to 37-11 in starts against division foes. ...

The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta.While the Toronto Maple Leafs signed head coach Randy Carlyle to a two-year extension on Thursday, the contract includes a team option for the final year. Carlyle had one year left on his existing deal, meaning his new contract runs through the 2016-17 season. "Leafs are not locked into Carlyle. If things dont work out, hes gone next year or year after," tweeted TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger. Carlyles assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon were not retained for next season. "We feel that this group can continue to grow into a higher level of a hockey club," said Carlyle during a conference all on Thursday. "We just have to find and continue to push for a little bit more from the individuals and we are going to do everything we possibly can to change some of the things that are happening with our group.&" The Maple Leafs started the 2013-14 season on a 10-4-0 run, but Carlyle worried at the time that his team was getting away with sloppy play in the defensive zone.dddddddddddd Going into and coming out of the Olympic break, the Leafs were rolling despite being badly outshot on most nights. When they beat the Kings in Los Angeles on March 13, they were in second place in the division. But starting goaltender Jonathan Bernier aggravated a groin injury that night, and though it was not considered serious at the time, it proved to be devastating. James Reimer lost five straight games and was pulled March 23 against the New Jersey Devils before Bernier returned and lost three more. The final night of that losing streak, March 29 against the Detroit Red Wings, was effectively the death knell for Torontos playoff hopes. ' ' '
