Ben Roethlisberger pooch punts to Browns' 1-yard line

The Steelers had an easy go of it Sunday in Cleveland, so good, in fact, that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doubled as the punter.

With seven minutes to go, Pittsburgh leading 20-3 and facing a 4th and 18 from the Cleveland 29-yard line, Big Ben and the offense remained on the field. Except that Roethlisberger, in the shotgun, punted the ball. And the pooch not only landed inside the 10, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders downed it at the one-yard line.

Actually, it's the fifth punt in Big Ben's career, three of which have been downed inside the 20.

In more important news, the Steelers beat the Browns to move to 5-6 on the season and face the Ravens Thursday night.
