Panthers beat Steelers in preseason finale

PITTSBURGH -- Jordan Todman ran for a long touchdown and Carolina's defense shut down the Pittsburgh Steelers backups in a 23-6 win on Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams.

Todman had a 49-yard sprint in the second quarter and Joe Webb found tight end Marcus Lucas for a 23-yard score just before the half as the Panthers rolled. Carolina finished up a 3-1 preseason by outgaining the Steelers 454-191.

Pittsburgh ended an extended exhibition season just 1-4 and has a week to prepare for defending Super Bowl champion New England and quarterback Tom Brady, whose four-game suspension for his role in "Deflategate" was overturned by a judge on Thursday.
