Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - Antonio Brown caught a touchdown pass from both Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, and the Pittsburgh Steelers posted a 38-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills in preseason action from Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Brown finished with 108 yards on seven receptions, while Roethlisberger completed 17-of-24 passes for 169 yards.

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 89 yards on 7-of-18 passing for Buffalo. Fred Jackson accounted for the Bills' lone touchdown with a 1-yard plunge in the first quarter.

The Steelers tied the game in the second quarter after their defense forced a C.J. Spiller fumble. Isaac Redman capped the five-play, 18-yard drive with a short touchdown.
