PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers have more than Ben Roethlisberger's right arm to thank for their biggest scoring output in more than two years.

Roethlisberger also called most of the plays during Pittsburgh's 37-27 win against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Steelers went to a no-huddle offense for much of the game to keep the Lions off balance. Roethlisberger responded by throwing for 367 yards and four touchdowns as Pittsburgh (4-6) won its second straight.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown credited Roethlisberger's deft playcalling for the team's most productive first half of the season. Roethlisberger also guided the Steelers on a pair of touchdown drives in the final 5 minutes to register the 31st fourth-quarter comeback of his career.
