Browns, Steelers play to 21-21 tie

Browns, Steelers play to 21-21 tie

Against one of the best teams in the league - best team in this division - if we can stand toe-to-toe with them, we can stand toe-to-toe with anybody.

Conner had 31 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

Cleveland ended its 17-game losing streak on Sunday with a 21-21 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Still, it was much more positive than negative for Conner, and he is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.

Both the interception - and the touchdown - came later in the game when Taylor and the Browns started to open things up.

To be fair, the last time the Steelers played to a tie, Tommy Maddox threw for 473 yards, Plaxico Burress had 253 yards receiving and Amos Zereoue (!) ran for another 123 yards in a 34-34 finish against Michael Vick and the Falcons on November 10, 2002. But after getting the ball back at their 1 with 43 seconds left, the Texans failed to reach midfield. "I feel like anybody out there on the field should expect the ball to come to them every play because you want to make plays". He recorded six tackles, had two sacks, and forced two fumbles.

Hopefully we'll see more of the same from Watt and the rest of the Steelers pass rush, as they totaled seven sacks against the Browns.

In his debut with Cleveland, Tyrod Taylor completed 15 of 40 passes for 197 yards.

BECKHAM IS BACK: Odell Beckham Jr. had 11 catches for 111 yards and drew two pass interference penalties on the same drive in his first game since last October following ankle surgery. Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, including a 75-yarder to Randall Cobb with 2:13 left in the game. James Conner also scored on a 22-yard touchdown run in the third-quarter.

Jackson said after the game that he did not intend for Gordon to start, but the Browns' personnel grouping called by offensive coordinator Todd Haley sent Gordon out for the opening offensive snap.

DeSean Jackson caught scoring passes of 58 and 36 yards to highlight his five-catch, 146-yard day before leaving with a concussion. On a pass intended for Antonio Brown on the right side, Ward layed out and swiped the ball in traffic at the Steelers' 10.

It was a tough week for Browns rookie guard Austin Corbett. Aaron Rodgers threw three fourth quarter touchdowns to lead the Packers from a 20-3 deficit.
