PITTSBURGH (AP) — Playing without star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who entered the COVID-19 protocol on Saturday night, the Steelers slogged their way to a 16-16 tie with the Detroit Lions on Sunday in an ugly nearly four-hour marathon that produced more comedy than highlights.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Dwayne Haskins isn't the same quarterback he was when he arrived in Pittsburgh in January.
