Steelers hold off Pats, keep North lead

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ben Roethlisberger didn't want to use the word "crossroads." He did anyway.

His team mired in a three-game losing streak and with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on the other sideline Sunday - a sight that typically signals doom for Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers - the longtime quarterback understood his team's enigmatic season had reached a tipping point.

"Are we going to step up and play? Are we going to divide each other? Who knows?" Roethlisberger said after a taut 17-10 victory. "This was going to be a great challenge for us against a team that is always one of the best. I thought we answered the bell today."
