NFL: Pittsburgh 35, Cincinnati 7

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Ben Roethlisberger set a franchise completions record and tossed a pair of touchdown passes Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 35-7 win over Cincinnati.

Roethlisberger connected on a 15 of his 23 attempts for 176 yards, giving him 2,026 career completions -- one more than Terry Bradshaw on the club's all-time list.


Both of his scoring strikes went to Mike Wallace and Rashard Mendenhall rushed for 60 yards and a pair of TDs on 16 carries for Pittsburgh (9-3), which grabbed a two-game lead over the Bengals in the AFC North standings.

The Steelers were battling the Baltimore Ravens for the division top-spot in the season's waning weeks.

The Bengals' Andy Dalton was limited to 11-of-24 passing for 135 yards and a score before leaving with a hip injury late in the game.
