CLEVELAND - There's nothing Super about the Pittsburgh Steelers anymore.
The defending NFL champions lost their fifth straight game and had their playoff hopes sacked by the lowly Cleveland Browns, who ended a 12-game losing streak against their bitter rival by beating the Steelers, 13-6, last night in subzero windchills.
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was sacked eight times and lost for the first time in 11 career games against the Browns (2-11), who extended Pittsburgh's longest losing streak in six years and defeated the Steelers (6-7) at home for the first time since 2000.
"A long time coming," Browns quarterback Brady Quinn said.
Pittsburgh's postseason chances are in peril - if not over completely. The Steelers are going to need help to make the postseason, a stunning free fall for a team that hit the season's halfway point at 6-2.
Unexpected losses to Kansas City, Oakland and Cleveland - three of the NFL's worst teams, with a combined record of 9-28 - have pushed Pittsburgh to the brink.
Chris Jennings, who began the season on Cleveland's practice squad, scored on a 10-yard run and Phil Dawson kicked a pair of 29-yard field goals for the Browns, who snapped a seven-game losing streak, a 10-game slide at home, and beat the Steelers for just the second time in 20 games.
Roethlisberger tried to rally the Steelers, but his fourth-down pass to Santonio Holmes with less than two minutes left was knocked down by linebacker David Bowens.
When Holmes was tackled on a punt return and the final second ticked off the clock, frozen Browns fans, who were nearly outnumbered by Terrible Towel-waving Pittsburgh fans, danced in the aisles.
Several Cleveland players sprinted downfield and jumped into the Dawg Pound section to celebrate.
Ravens. A woman who says Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs fathered her two children has filed a $70 million suit against him.
Candace Williams is seeking $50 million in punitive damages and $20 million in compensatory damages from the three-time Pro Bowl pass rusher. She filed a separate complaint seeking custody of the children and is seeking a restraining order. She says Suggs knocked her down and poured bleach on her and their son.
Suggs said he could not talk about the case now, but would when he could.
Giants. New York right guard Chris Snee is practicing on a limited basis, improving his chances of playing in this weekend's showdown with the Eagles.
Snee has started 76 consecutive games for the Giants. He missed the second half of Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys with an injury to his left knee.
Falcons. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan sat out another practice because of a toe injury, making it increasingly unlikely he will be able to play against the unbeaten New Orleans Saints.
Titans. Tennessee quarterback Vince Young aggravated his right knee and left practice early in what coach Jeff Fisher called a "setback."
A trainer and a doctor wrapped ice around his knee, then he left practice early, walking out of the indoor practice field gingerly.
Vikings. Minnesota wide receiver Percy Harvin has missed practice again because of migraine headaches.
Patriots. Quarterback Tom Brady missed practice for the second straight day. New England listed Brady with right- finger, right-shoulder, and rib problems. Meanwhile, linebacker Adalius Thomas was surprised he was sent home by coach Bill Belichick for being late to a team meeting Wednesday. Thomas, one of four players sent home for tardiness, said he called ahead as players are instructed to do.
