(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) -- The Steelers get a 34-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night as the starters get more work and the backup quarterback goes down with an injury.

Ben Roethlisberger finished 11 of 16 for 216 yards and two touchdowns while finding Antonio Brown four times for 137 yards including those two touchdown passes of 77 yards and 44 yards respectively.

Also providing spark was the second-year cornerback out of Clemson, Crezdon Butler, who intercepted Chris Redman's throw and returned it untouched for a 95-yard touchdown.

Scary moment in the third quarter when backup quarterback Byron Leftwich went down with an injury. Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed after the game that Leftwich broke his left arm.

Two players left early in the game with injuries:  center Maurkice Pouncey with a left ankle injury and cornerback Keenan Lewis left with a knee injury while nose tackle Casey Hampton later left with a right elbow injury later. No further details were available.
