Steelers fail to hold 14-point fourth quarter lead/Tie Browns

Adjust Comment Print

We had enough time in the pocket and he (QB Tyrod Taylor) was able to get it up in the right spot.

"Pressure is always there", said Conner, who survived a cancer scare while he was at Pitt. Again, I think the guys can see that we're an improved football team, but there are some areas we have to clean up and clean up fast, and we will. It feels like a wash ...

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett (95) and defensive back Derrick Kindred (26) cause a fumble by Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (30) during the fourth quarter at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

Ben Roethlisberger threw three picks and fumbled twice. Brady engineered touchdown drives of 75 and 78 yards in the second quarter.

"There is nothing to be excited about, nothing at all", said Gordon, who missed most of the past four seasons because of drug suspensions. The defensive end was flagged for a violation of the rule that prohibits a player from landing on the quarterback with most or all of his body weight.


Pittsburgh had no answer for the touchdown as they went three-and-out to give the Browns a chance to win for the first time since 2016.

Cleveland and Pittsburgh exchanged possessions late in the fourth quarter before the Browns took control of the ball with 2:10 remaining.

Kansas City's blistering-fast Tyreek Hill, who is coming off a three-touchdown game against the Los Angeles Chargers, was held to a season-low 34 yards receiving a year ago against Pittsburgh.

Getting buried in penalties is nothing new for Pittsburgh, at least early on.

Over time, they tend to clean things up.


The Browns defense, as dominant as it had been all preseason, got six takeaways: three interceptions and three fumble recoveries, including one off a strip-sack by Myles Garrett. "Our team has got to get better".

The eyeglass emoji could mean a lot of things. "So we want that player to make an effort". The Steelers will be without star running back Le'Veon Bell, who is holding out amid a contract dispute. It was, in many ways, Bell-esque.

"Disappointed", Jackson said of the infractions. "It's a war of attrition". Haden underwent testing on Monday to determine the severity. Haden made a brief appearance in the locker room and walked without any visible distress. He exploded for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the opener.

The last time a Browns game ended in a tie was November 19, 1989 against Kansas City, a 10-10 final.

Burns knows that can't happen moving forward. "I'm so exhausted of it. Let's just worry about the guys that are here".


The 88 combined points by the Buccaneers (48) and Saints (40) were the most ever scored in a single game on so-called Kickoff Weekend.
