TAMPA, Fla.—It was not the way Ben Roethlisberger would draw it up but the Pittsburgh Steelers will take it.

CALGARY—The odds are stacked against Sami Niku when it comes to cracking an experienced Winnipeg Jets' blueline this season.
But the 21-year-old Finn is showing he's not far away.
Niku and Nikolaj Ehlers, who notched the overtime winner, each scored twice last night as Winnipeg won 5-4 over the Calgary Flames.
CJ Suess rounded out the scoring for Winnipeg.
TORONTO—If last night's game marked the last for Marco Estrada in a Blue Jays' uniform, he wasn't pleased with how it ended.
Estrada, who will become a free agent at the end of the season, allowed four runs on seven hits—including two solo homers—as the Jays fell 5-3 to the Houston Astros to open their final home series of the year.
WINNIPEG—Matt Nichols almost had forgotten what it felt like to win. It was good.
The Winnipeg quarterback threw one touchdown pass and no interceptions as the Blue Bombers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 31-14 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night.
RICHMOND, Va.—Kyle Busch is starting to wonder why he even spends time trying to qualify well at Richmond Raceway.
Five months after winning the spring race on the 0.75-mile oval from the 32nd starting spot, Busch did even better Saturday night—winning from 39th to complete a season sweep of the NASCAR Cup Series races.
ATLANTA—Tiger Woods, in his Sunday red shirt, both arms raised in victory on the 18th green.
For so many years, the scene was familiar.
This time, it was surreal.
MINNEAPOLIS—Josh Allen played with the poise of a well-seasoned quarterback, hustling to give Buffalo an early lead in his first NFL road start.
Then the Bills turned their defence loose on Kirk Cousins and delivered a stunningly-lopsided victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
BALTIMORE—One night after setting a dubious record for losses, the Baltimore Orioles were ready to savour a rare win against a division rival.
Rookie DJ Stewart hit his first major-league home run and Baltimore used five pitchers to avoid a three-game sweep by beating the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 last night.
MONTREAL—The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel once again is the next man up.
The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal's first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers tomorrow night.
ATLANTA—Tiger Woods is facing long odds in capturing the FedEx Cup and the $10-million bonus.
But that's all relative this year.
