PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The attorney for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is rejecting a settlement offer by a former Nevada casino worker who claims the Super Bowl winner sexually assaulted her. Roethlisberger attorney David Cornwell says the woman's offer is bizarre. The woman wants Roethlisberger to admit to the allegations, apologize and donate $100,000 to the Committee to Aid Abused Women, a Reno nonprofit organization that offers support to domestic violence victims.

Ben Roethlisberger threw one touchdown pass, and the Pittsburgh Steelers overcame their injury-depleted running game to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 24-17 on Sunday night. Shaun Suisham kicked field goals of 42, 47 and 42 yards, and the Steelers clamped down on Cincinnati's Dalton-to-Green connection, holding it to one completion. The Steelers (3-3) won on the road for the first time this season and improved to 12-2 at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals (3-4) fell to 0-6 the last two seasons against Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ask the Pittsburgh Steelers about the New England Patriots' unofficial NFL record 21-game winning streak, and it's likely they will turn the question around. What about their own four-game winning streak since rookie Ben Roethlisberger replaced the injured Tommy Maddox at quarterback? With the Steelers (5-1) a game up on the favored Ravens (4-2) in the AFC North and 10 games still remaining, the Steelers understand the dangers of focusing too much attention on a single regular-season game - even one that could bring an end to the Patriots' run. That's why the Steelers are taking a decidedly low-key approach into Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, even if winning would substantially increase the national profile of a team that went 6-10 last season.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was suspended for six games without pay Wednesday for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy and ordered to undergo behavioral evaluation. Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down the punishment a week after prosecutors decided not to charge Roethlisberger in a case involving a 20-year-old college student who accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Georgia nightclub in March. Goodell said the league's conduct policy gave him the right to impose discipline regardless of whether he broke the law. "I recognize that the allegations in Georgia were disputed and that they did not result in criminal charges being filed against you," he said in his letter to the two-time Super Bowl winner, a six-year veteran.

julieg@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - "Yeah! No!" Sunday marked the return of regular-season games for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins and the return of angst-ridden moments and playoff prognostications from their fans. For Dave Pittman, the "Yeah! No!" moment came early as Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress caught and then dropped a pass from quarterback Tommy Maddox as he was hit hard by two Oakland Raiders. Pittman, 31, of Hagerstown, was one of about 75 people packed on the deck and inside the lounge at the Colonial Restaurant & Lounge at 14130 Pennsylvania Ave. north of Hagerstown.

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities announced Monday that they will not charge Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after a college student accused him of sexually assaulting her at a nightclub last month. Ocmulgee Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright said the 20-year-old student's accusations could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and her lawyer said in a letter that she did not want to press charges. "Therefore there will be no arrests made nor criminal prosecution against Mr. Roethlisberger," Bright said.

Being a native Ohioan and a Cleveland Browns fan, I've about had it up to the proverbial chin with the Browns and their ineptness, not only as an offensive non-juggernaut, but also with their inability to evaluate college talent. Coach Butch Davis, highly responsible for player moves in an organization that became less than enamored with quarterback Tim Couch, went out and signed free agent Jeff Garcia to turn the Browns' fortunes around. Sickening! Sunday night, the Browns get one touchdown on a game-opening kickoff return and that's it!

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers wanted to be looked upon merely as legitimate playoff contenders after going 6-10 last season. Consecutive victories over the previously unbeaten Patriots and Eagles have them looking much, much better then that. How about the best team in football and the midseason favorite to win the Super Bowl? The Steelers (7-1) could legitimately argue Monday they are exactly that as they began preparing to take a six-game winning streak into Cleveland on Sunday.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- During the first three quarters, Ben Roethlisberger often is an ordinary Joe. Put the Steelers' well-paid quarterback into a tight contest in the fourth quarter, the kind of games that teams must win to go far in the postseason, he transforms himself into a current-day version of Joe Montana. Despite the Steelers' 11-3 record, their offense hasn't come close to matching in efficiency or performance a defense that might wind up as one of the best statistically in league history.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Jeff Reed kicked a 33-yard field goal with 4:32 gone in overtime and the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers again relied on Ben Roethlisberger's ability to lead clutch scoring drives to beat the Tennessee Titans 13-10 in the NFL season opener Thursday night. The Steelers, their running game stuffed by Tennessee's defense, didn't get going until Roethlisberger began repeatedly finding Santonio Holmes and Hines Ward open downfield. Roethlisberger went 33 of 43 for 363 yards, with Holmes -- the Super Bowl star -- making nine catches for 131 yards and Ward, despite a potentially costly fumble, making eight for 103. The Titans lost the coin toss to start the overtime and, as so often happens, never saw the ball again.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Charlie Batch doesn't pretend to be a savior. His job is to help Pittsburgh continue winning while Ben Roethlisberger is on suspension, and the 35-year-old quarterback just wants to do his part. "These opportunities don't come often right now," the 13-year veteran said Sunday after making his first start in nearly three years and helping the Steelers remain unbeaten with a 38-13 rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Everybody knows Ben's the starter," Batch added.
