PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Denver Broncos 27-19 on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak.

Rookie running back Najee Harris added a career-best 122 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Steelers, who improved to 2-3. Denver quarterback Teddy Bridgewater nearly rallied the Broncos from an 18-point deficit.

Bridgewater threw a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes. His last pass, however, was picked off by James Pierre.

The Broncos have dropped two straight following a 3-0 start.
