Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork. [url=http://www.metsbaseballauthentic.com/gary-carter-mets-jersey/]Gary Carter Jersey[/url] .com) - LeVeon Bell ran for the go-ahead touchdown and Ben Roethlisberger hit Martavis Bryant for a 94-yard score during Pittsburghs big fourth quarter in a 42-21 victory over the AFC North- leading Cincinnati Bengals. Bell finished with 26 carries for 185 yards and two TDs, both in the final quarter, when the Steelers (8-5) outscored the Bengals, 25-0. Bell also had a touchdown reception, and Roethlisberger completed 25-of-39 passes for 350 yards and three scores to guide the Steelers to their fifth win in the last seven games. Andy Dalton finished 21-of-29 for 302 yards and a pair of scores for the Bengals (8-4-1), who had a three-game winning streak broken. A.J. Green caught 11 passes for a career-best 224 yards and a score. With Baltimore (8-5) winning at Miami and Cleveland (7-6) losing at home to Indianapolis Sunday, there is a crush in the division standings. The schedule is tough for both teams over the final three games. The Bengals play at Cleveland before hosting Denver on a Monday night, then conclude the season in Pittsburgh. The Steelers play at Atlanta then host Kansas City before what could be a giant encounter against the Bengals. Green beat Ike Taylor in coverage for an 81-yard TD reception on the final play of the third quarter to give Cincinnati a 21-17 lead. Bell broke off a 53-yard run, which led to Shaun Suishams 44-yard field goal early in the fourth. Pittsburgh caught a break later in the quarter. Dalton had a poor exchange on a fake handoff and coughed up the football. Arthur Moats pounced on the ball at the Cincinnati 24, and Bell finished the short march with a 13-yard run by fighting off a would-be tackler and stretching the ball over the goal line. Roethlisberger connected with Heath Miller on the 2- point conversion with 11:27 remaining. The Bengals then pinned the Steelers at their own 6 following a punt, but on the next play, Leon Hall was burned in coverage down the right sideline by Bryant for the 94-yard score with 8:31 to play and a 35-21 cushion. Bell broke off left tackle for a 22-yard TD run with 5:09 remaining to cement Clevelands second straight big home loss to a division opponent. They lost 24-3 to Cleveland on Nov. 6 before winning three in a row on the road. The Bengals failed to get a first down following a fake punt during a scoreless first quarter, and the Steelers struck first early in the second. Roethlisberger threw to a wide open Miller on the right side of the end zone for a 1-yard score. The Bengals then covered 80 yards in five plays to tie the score. Dalton connected with Green on a 56-yard bomb over the middle, and two plays later, the signal-caller found Jermaine Gresham from 10 yards out for the TD. William Gay picked off Dalton at the Pittsburgh 10 on Cincinnatis next possession, but Jason Worilds was whistled for illegal use of hands, which negated the play. Dalton made the Steelers pay when he faked a handoff and darted up the middle untouched to the end zone for a 20-yard score with 2:57 left. Suisham connected on a 22-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining to get the Steelers within 14-10 at the half. After the Steelers attained a 1st-and-goal from the 4, Roethlisberger threw three consecutive incomplete passes. A nifty move by Bell led to Pittsburgh grabbing a 17-14 lead with 5:24 left in third. On 3rd-and-6, he ran a pattern over the middle, then escaped the coverage of linebacker Emmanuel Lamur before catching a 10-yard TD pass. Game Notes Pittsburgh has won seven of the last nine meetings ... Dalton was knocked out for a play with 8:15 left in the third when Stephon Tuitt connected with the QBs ribs on a rush up the middle. Dalton walked off the field slowly, and Jason Campbell entered the game. Campbell also played the final two offensive series ... Antonio Brown had nine catches for 117 yards for Pittsburgh, while Bryant had four for 109.

Ellis have avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year contract.SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs seemingly had overcome certain defeat with a dominant run. The sold-out crowd at the AT&T Center was producing deafening cheers, believing the defending NBA champions would rallied as they had done so often last season.The reserved tone of Anthony Davis, New Orleans quiet superstar, rose amid the chaos, essentially saying, We got this.He had it.Davis scored the game-winning basket a driving layup with 6.6 seconds left and the New Orleans Pelicans held on for a 100-99 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night. Davis finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds.San Antonio went on a 15-4 run with Tony Parker and Tim Duncan on the bench to take a 99-98 lead. Danny Green capped the run with three free throws with 12 seconds remaining after he was fouled by Eric Gordon on a wild 3-point attempt as the shot clock was about to expire.It was the Spurs first lead since 8 minutes remained in the first quarter.When Danny Green made those three free throws, I told coach, were going to win the game, Davis said. Were going to get a bucket and were going to win this game.Davis drove past Aron Baynes for a layup with 6.6 seconds left to seal the win. Kawhi Leonard missed a pair of shots in the final seconds, snapping the Spurs five-game winning streak over the Pelicans.The play was supposed to go to Jrue (Holiday) for the back door, but me being me, when I caught the ball, I was in attack mode, Davis said. I just tried to make a good play. Jrue knew because he stopped and didnt go. I just tried to be aggressive.It was the mindset New Orleans had all night in flustering the veteran Spurs.We dont back down from any team, Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans said. We came out and executed, played really hard the whole game.Evans had 18 points, including buzzer-beating shots in the second and third quarters, and Jrue Holiday had 15 points and 11 assists.Parker scored 28 points, Manu Ginobili added 17 points, Green had 16 and Duncan had 11 points and 10 rebounds.It was a narrow escape for what early on seemed a dominant victory by New Orleans (3-2) over San Antonio (2-3).I think its more mental than anything, Green said. But I cant speak for everybody. When I talk to some of the older guys, some guys bodies are hurting a llittle bit. [url=http://www.metsbaseballauthentic.com/keith-hernandez-mets-jersey/]Keith Hernandez Jersey[/url]. . We have some back-to-backs coming up, but weve done this before. Theyve been here before. I feel like were in decent shape; still getting there. Were not in the greatest shape. Were just not in our normal team rhythm, our chemistry.Even when the Spurs did well defensively, blocking a layup by Holiday or forcing a miss by Evans on a fastbreak, the Pelicans hustled to gather the shots in midair and score.Holiday came out of nowhere to block Leonard on what looked like an uncontested layup off a bullet pass from Ginobili. Evans hustled over to help defensively and catch Parker coming out of a spin to the basket, forcing the Spurs point guard to throw the ball out wildly into Davis arms for the teams 17th turnover.San Antonio had 19 turnovers and struggled to match New Orleans intensity.Im one of players, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. So I think were out there playing hard. I understand a year after winning the championship youre going to get everyones best shot. I believe were out there playing hard and I believe things just havent gone out way.TIP-INSThe Spurs: Duncan had his 800th career double-double, the most among active players, placing him 14 behind Karl Malone for fifth. . San Antonio wore camouflage short-sleeve jerseys in honour of its Military Appreciation Night.The Pelicans: Davis has led or shared the lead in both scoring and rebounding in every game except for the teams Nov. 3 loss at Memphis. . Davis entered leading the league in rebounding at 13.3 per game and Asik was sixth at 11.3. . Evans (right hamstring), Asik (sprained right ankle) and Holiday (right tibia stress fracture) were all listed as probable but each played 26-plus minutes.COMPARITIVELY SPEAKINGDuncan and Davis, both former No. 1 overall selections, have posted similar numbers in their first two seasons in the NBA. Duncan averaged 21.3 points on 53 per cent shooting along with 11.7 rebounds, 2.5 blocks in 39 minutes after being the top selection in 1997 by the Spurs.
