Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers got sacked 41-10 in Cincy on Sunday. 

Bengals 41, Pittsburgh 10

CINCINNATI (AP) — A 41-10 thrashing at the hands of the division rival Bengals has the Steelers in line to miss the playoffs for the third time in four years. It wasn't so much that Sunday's loss happened as how it happened.

The Steelers (5-5-1) were beaten in the trenches and outrushed 198 yards to 51. It hasn't happened often when the Bengals were the more physical team in this rivalry, but that was the case on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

With Sunday's win, the Bengals (7-4) completed their first regular-season sweep of the Steelers since 2009.

Ravens 16, Browns 10

BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson provided one brilliant highlight during an otherwise subpar performance and his 13-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews in the third quarter was enough to lift the Baltimore Ravens to a 16-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday night.

Jackson threw a career-high four interceptions in this mistake-filled game, but the only touchdown for Baltimore was memorable. Dogged by Cleveland's pass rush all night, Jackson scrambled all the way back to about the 35-yard line before lofting a pass over the middle to a remarkably open Andrews in the end zone.

That made it 13-3, and the Ravens (8-3) held on to take over the top spot in the AFC standings.

Cleveland (6-6) never could get its running game — which entered ranked No. 1 in the league — going against the Baltimore defensive front. Nick Chubb managed only 16 yards on eight carries, and Kareem Hunt had 20 yards on seven attempts.
