Steelers Beat Tampa For First Win
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Ben Roethlisberger threw for 353 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 30-27 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. Capping a tumultuous week in which star receiver Antonio Brown made headlines by shouting at an assistant coach on the sidelines and getting into a spat on social media, the Steelers (1-1-1) built a 20-point lead before holding on for their first win. Vance McDonald scored on a 75-yard pass play and finished with four catches for 112 yards. Brown and Ryan Switzer also had first-half TD receptions for Pittsburgh, which led 30-10 at halftime. The Steelers' defense forced four turnovers, including three first-half interceptions of Ryan Fitzpatrick, the 35-year-old journeyman who threw for 819 yards and eight touchdowns in two victories to begin Tampa Bay's season. Fitzpatrick led his team to 17 fourth-quarter points to make it close.

Taillon & Pirates Beat Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) - Jameson Taillon outpitched Cole Hamels, Francisco Cervelli hit a two-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates made the Chicago Cubs wait at least another day to clinch a postseason spot with a 5-1 victory on Monday night. The Cubs needed a win plus a loss by Colorado to Philadelphia to assure a franchise-record fourth straight trip to the playoffs, a run that includes a drought-busting World Series championship in 2016. Closing in on a third straight NL Central title, the Cubs began the night with a 2 1/2-game lead over second-place Milwaukee, then lost for the third time in five games. Taillon (14-9) gave up one run and five hits in seven innings, improving to 5-0 in his past seven starts. The right-hander has not allowed more than three earned runs in his past 21 outings. Hamels (4-2) hit his second career homer but he lost his second straight start after going 4-0 in his first nine following a trade from Texas. The left-hander gave up three runs - two earned - and five hits in six innings. Cervelli hit a two-run homer in the first after missing the previous two games because of gastrointestinal discomfort. He also reached on an infield single in the sixth and scored on Jose Osuna's second double.

NFL; 49ers Lose Garoppolo For The Season
UNDATED (AP) - The 49ers say quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will need season-ending surgery after an MRI confirmed he tore the ACL in his left knee while making a cut late in Sunday's loss at Kansas City. That leaves the quarterbacking chores for C.J. Beathard, who struggled to put up points before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed the Niners' fortunes.

NHL; Gionta Calls It A Career
UNDATED (AP) - Undersized NHL forward Brian Gionta has formally announced his retirement and has accepted a role as a developmental coach with the Buffalo Sabres on a part-time basis. The 5-foot-7 forward lasted 16 NHL seasons and served as captain of the Sabres and Canadiens. He helped the Devils win the 2003 Stanly Cup and ends his playoff career with 291 goals and 595 points in 1,026 games. Gionta had seven 20-goal seasons, including a career-high 48 with the 2005-06 Devils.
