The Cleveland Browns face off with the Pittsburgh Steelers today in a huge game for the AFC North. The home team Browns could draw themselves directly into the conversation for the Division with a win today.

Here are the big plays for the 3rd quarter for Browns Vs Steelers:

  • Browns get two quick first downs to open the half.
    • Travis Benjamin on a short end around then a big catch in coverage gets Browns near field goal range.
    • Browns punt instead of attempting a 54 yard field goal.
    • Marlon Moore tracks the punt perfectly to down at the 6 yard line. Decision seems to pay off.
  • Steelers convert on 3rd and 2 with a sideline throw to Antonio Brown.
    • Joe Haden beat on a double move for a decent sized game.
  • Steelers drive to the Browns 30 before two sacks by the Browns.
  • Browns offense keeps moving down the field on next possession.
    • Kyle Shanahan’s offense keeping Steelers off balance all day long.

The Browns didn’t extend the lead by much but dominated the Steelers on both sides of the ball. The offensive line is opening holes for the backs and Shanny’s offense is putting Hoyer in position to play well. The defense is holding the Steelers in check and Big Ben seems to have lost interest in the game. We could see Johnny Manziel in the 4th quarter as the Browns lead late.
