NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE - WEEK 17 ; Steelers Rally, Beat Browns in Overtime on Jones TD


The, Charleston Gazette Mail


PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Steelers backups assured the Cleveland Browns of the top pick in the 2017 draft. Landry Jones hit Cobi Hamilton with a 26-yard touchdown with 2:57 left in overtime and the Steelers edged the Browns 27-24 on Sunday.

The Browns took a lead on Cody Parkey's 34-yard field goal with 7:17 remaining in the extra session.

Jones, who started while the playoff-bound Steelers rested Ben Roethlisberger, took the Steelers 75 yards in nine plays, the last a pretty lob to the end zone that Hamilton hauled in to give Pittsburgh (11-5) its seventh straight victory after a 4-5 start.

Jones finished with 277 yards passing and three touchdowns and one interception.

The Steelers will host Miami in the wild-card round next weekend. The Dolphins thumped Pittsburgh 30-15 on Oct. 16.

Isaiah Crowell ran for a career-high 152 yards for the Browns (1- 15), who finished with the worst record in franchise history.

Robert Griffin III passed for 232 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, but Cleveland missed a chance to beat the Steelers on the road for the first time since 2003 when it squandered a couple of golden opportunities late.

Bengals 27, Ravens 10

CINCINNATI - Andy Dalton completed his first 10 passes, one of them for a touchdown, and Rex Burkhead ran for a pair of touchdowns and the Cincinnati Bengals beat Baltimore, their fifth straight win at home over the Ravens.

The Bengals (6-9-1) missed out on the playoffs for the first time in six years, and haven't won a playoff game in 26 years, the sixth- longest streak in NFL history. Coach Marvin Lewis - 0-7 in the postseason - says he'll return in 2017.

Baltimore (8-8) failed to reach the playoffs for the third time in four years. The Ravens played their final game as if they were emotionally hungover from a last-minute loss at Pittsburgh last Sunday that eliminated them.

Ravens receiver Steve Smith caught three passes for 34 yards in what was probably the final game of his remarkable career.

The 37-year-old receiver reiterated last week that he's likely retiring. He has 51 games with 100 yards receiving, tied for fourth- most in NFL history.

Titans 24, Texans 17

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - DaQuan Jones recovered a fumble for a touchdown in the first quarter, and the Tennessee Titans never trailed in beating the Houston Texans to finish with their first winning season since 2011.

The Titans (9-7) also ended a five-game skid to the two-time AFC South champs, who had beaten Tennessee eight of the previous nine games in this series. With their six-win improvement from going 3- 13 in 2015, the Titans matched the biggest one-year turnaround in franchise history, previously set in 1967 and 1974.

Matt Cassel also threw for a touchdown in his first start this season in place of an injured Marcus Mariota, and Derrick Henry ran for a TD. Rishard Matthews caught nine passes for 114 yards, and Pro Bowl lineman Jurrell Casey had two of Tennessee's four sacks.

The Texans (9-7) had little at stake except sweeping the AFC South for the first time in franchise history. Hosting a wild-card game next weekend, the Texans deactivated six starters before kickoff and had just one starter still in on defense by midway through the third quarter. Undrafted rookie Joel Heath had two of the Texans' four sacks.

Quarterback Tom Savage, who started, left in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion and was cleared. He took a snap to kneel down on the final play of the first half and was diagnosed with a concussion after being re-evaluated at halftime. …
