Steelers Roll Over Bengals
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ben Roethlisberger threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, Le'Veon Bell added 192 total yards and Pittsburgh's defense dominated the Cincinnati Bengals in the second half of a 29-14 victory on Sunday. The Steelers (5-2) relied on their stars to take the lead and then on their reinvigorated defense to blunt Cincinnati's and give themselves a significant cushion over the rest of the underwhelming AFC North. The Bengals (2-4) came in looking to add some street cred to their resurgence after their 0-3 start, but instead spent the second half reverting to the kind of ineffective offense that got Ken Zampese fired two weeks into the season. The Steelers picked off Andy Dalton twice and sacked him three times over the final two quarters to pull away. Chris Boswell added five field goals for Pittsburgh, which posted its highest points total and appears to be rounding into form as Halloween nears.

Patriots Leave Falcons In A Fog
UNDATED (AP) - The New England Patriots didn't need a 25-point comeback this time. The Pats easily won a rematch of Super Bowl 51 as Tom Brady threw for two touchdowns in a 23-7 victory against the Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots scored the first 23 points of the game after scoring the last 31 to pull out a 34-28 overtime win over the Falcons in the Super Bowl. Brady threw for 249 yards and completed 21 of his 29 passes despite a thick fog that shrouded Gillette Stadium. New England's string of 54 straight points against Atlanta ended when Matt Ryan hit Julio Jones for a four-yard TD with 4:09 to play. Ryan was other ineffective while going 23 of 33 for 233 yards. The Patriots improved to 5-2. The Falcons slipped to 3-3.

Pens Put Niemi on Waivers
PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed backup goaltender Antti Niemi on waivers. The 34-year-old has a 7.49 goals against average and .797 save percentage in his first three starts this season. Head coach Mike Sullivan said the plan is to place the 34-year0old on waivers, then make a longer term decision which could include playing for the Baby Penguins in Wilkes-Barre Scranton.
