Browns capitalize on turnovers in win over Steelers

CLEVELAND -- Chris Rainey's fumble with 2:25 left -- the Pittsburgh Steelers' seventh turnover -- was recovered by Cleveland's Phil Taylor, and the Browns handed their hated rivals a potentially devastating loss, 20-14 over the stumbling Steelers on Sunday.

Charlie Batch, forced to start at quarterback for Pittsburgh because of injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, was picked off three times and the Steelers (6-5) lost five fumbles, the last on the final play of the game to help the Browns (3-8) beat Pittsburgh for just the second time in 18 games.

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a head injury in the final minutes. Backup Colt McCoy finished the win.

Cleveland rookie Trent Richardson rushed for 85 yards, scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a 15-yarder in the third.

Batch finished with 20-of-34 passing for 199 yards.
