Browns vs. Steelers: Pittsburgh leads Cleveland 7-0 at the half

  • Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor scrambles against the Pittsburgh Steelers during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 9 2018 in Cleveland

They would have been the No. 1 wild card, leaving three 9-7 teams to sweat out the tie-breaker for the second wild card. Rather than talking about the real story Week 1, everyone is making the same joke about the Browns ending a losing streak without actually winning. Without a win - or a loss.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, bottom, can not hold onto the ball under pressure from Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back Joe Haden, top, during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Cleveland.

But the Browns, being the Browns, couldn't finish the job. At least that can't happen again.

The Steelers were without the team's best running back. His only catch was a game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Pittsburgh was without Bell, whose contract holdout will carry into the season's second week.

The Steelers took over at their 17, but punted from their 28 after Larry Ogunjobi sacked Roethlisberger for a 10-yard loss. "I'm sorry for using that kind of language, but if we settle for those, we're going to be an awfully (steamed) off bunch". "We don't come to work to get ties". I know the sentiment I am getting here is that it is him. "It just gives you a sick taste in your mouth".

Hurricane Florence's path: Track the storm here
Many newcomers have moved to the coast in the almost 19 years since the last strong hurricane - Floyd - threatened the area. Florence was upgraded twice Monday to a Category 4. "Right now it's 625 miles South of Bermuda, with 105 mph winds".

Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward intercepted Roethlisberger twice in his National Football League debut. "We just didn't make them".

Defensive end Myles Garrett was a beast for the Cleveland Browns.

"You expect the ball to come at you every play", Sutton said. "Whether that is newness or whatever it is, I do not want to get caught up in all of that". The game was delayed by weather twice, and lasted seven hours. The second-year Steeler appeared in five games as a rookie last season and made one start in 2017, totaling five tackles and a pass defended.

"We have been practicing fade balls all week, the offseason and training camp", Gordon told reporters. Gordon has also been battling a hamstring issue.

It was a tough week for Browns rookie guard Austin Corbett.

Harrison, who moved into the starting lineup this week, was penalized for two false starts in the first half and had some other assignment issues. "Nothing", said Jackson, who has turned play calling over to coordinator Todd Haley this season. It is not good enough.

4 missing, 10 hurt after 2 boats collide, sink on Colorado River
Saturday when a northbound Hallet boat carrying 10 people collided with a southbound Sleekcraft with six aboard, officials said . The water carried all of them some distance down the river, some as far as three to five miles from the site of the collision.

The last time a Browns game ended in a tie was November 19, 1989 against Kansas City, a 10-10 final. "We have to do some things better".

Although Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner looked solid replacing Le'Veon Bell in Week 1, the outcome of the game left fans less than thrilled.

The Steelers, who blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, also wasted their chance to escape with a win when Chris Boswell was wide left on a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 1:44 remaining in the extra period. The Browns and the Steelers tied at 21. Cleveland seems to be heading in the right direction, and if there's any indication of Sunday's game versus Pittsburgh, it's that they now have some playmakers on defense.

The Browns went three-and-out on their first three drives in overtime.

Brown finished with nine receptions for 93 yards receiving and a touchdown. Forgive the Pittsburgh Steelers if they're not quite sure what to make of their 21-21 tie against Cleveland in the season opener.
