PITTSBURGH, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Ben Roethlisberger
fired a trio of touchdown passes and Pittsburgh's defense forced four turnovers Sunday in the Steelers' 24-10 win over Cleveland.
Roethlisberger completed 15-of-23 for 134 yards for the Steelers (8-8), who broke a three-game losing streak and managed to finish a disappointing 2012 season at the .500 mark.
Cleveland's Thaddeus Lewis -- subbing for injured quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy -- went 22-of-32 through the air for 204 yards with a touchdown and one interception in his NFL debut.
Benjamin Watson made seven grabs en route to 64 yards for the Browns (5-11).
