Comedy of errors as Steelers, Lions slog to 16-16 tie

The Pittsburgh Steelers had it rough on Sunday afternoon, as it was a wet and snowy game, along with that fact they tied 16-16 with the winless Detriot Lions.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Detroit's long losing streak is over. The threat of a winless season still remains.

For now, the Lions will take it, no matter how ugly it looks.

The Lions slogged their way to a 16-16 tie in dreary Pittsburgh on Sunday, surviving a nearly four-hour marathon against the Ben Roethlisberger-less Steelers that ended with Detroit mercifully avoiding the loss column for the first time in nearly a year.
