PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger passed for 367 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the final 5 minutes as the Pittsburgh Steelers rallied to beat the Detroit Lions 37-27 on Sunday.

Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 147 yards and two scores and Pittsburgh's defense rebounded from a horrific second quarter to shut out Detroit in the second half. The Steelers (4-6) have won two straight and kept the Lions (6-4) winless in Pittsburgh for 58 years and counting.

Matthew Stafford threw for 362 yards with two touchdowns and an interception to become the Lions' all-time leading passer. Calvin Johnson hauled in six passes for 179 yards and both scores, but Detroit's two stars disappeared over the final 30 minutes.

Stafford completed just 3 of 16 passes in the second half, with none of the completions going to Johnson.
