Cleveland Browns Disappointing Loss No. 2 – Pittsburgh Steelers
One of the uglies games all season was the Cleveland Browns vs. Steelers in Week 8. It was a defensive battle the whole day, and then at the end of the half, Mike Tomlin had one of the worst fake field goal attempts in the history of the NFL.
After a 3-3 deadlock that he could have broken, the Steelers turned the ball over on downs and got their kicker hurt to boot. So now it’s a 3-3 game starting the third, and the Steelers don’t have anyone to place kick.
The Browns would finally score a touchdown on their first drive of the second half to take a 10-3 lead, but then it was nothing but disappointment. The Steelers would score the next drive but miss the two-point conversion making it 10-9 Cleveland.
After a quick three and out by the Browns, the Steelers were on the move again and went 83 yards to take the lead. They would eventually score on a fourth and goal play that was a freak catch by Pat Freiermuth but once again missed the two-point conversion.
With two more cracks at trying to take the lead, Jarvis Landry would fumble, and then the offense would turn it over on downs. Let’s not forget, with nearly two minutes left and three timeouts, the Browns were not able to stop the Steelers offense knowing exactly what was coming.
This was an ugly game, but one that the offense needed to find a way to win. The defense was great all day and then finally broke on the last drive of the game.
