Brown, Big Ben lead Steelers' 38-7 rout of Bills
Saturday, August 25, 2012
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Receiver Antonio Brown scored two touchdowns in leading the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 38-7 preseason rout over the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night.
Ben Roethlisberger shook off a slow start by engineering an 11-play, 98-yard touchdown drive for the go-ahead score with a 6-yard pass to Brown at the end of the first half. Brown then opened the second half with a 39-yard touchdown catch from backup Byron Leftwich in helping the Steelers (No. 7 in the AP Pro32) improve to 2-1.
Fred Jackson scored on a 1-yard plunge, and high-priced defensive end Mario Williams had two sacks for the Bills (No.9), who dropped to 0-3. The Bills' starting offense sputtered in producing just one score despite five of seven drives into Steelers territory.
