Steelers edge Browns in overtime

Steelers edge Browns in overtime

The Steelers, winners of seven straight, are 11-5 and will be the No. 3 seed in the AFC Playoffs. Christmas Eve brought the first win of the year for the Brownies, and it looked like they could possibly build on that success this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game will be a rematch from Week 6 when the Steelers lost in Miami, 30-15, to start a four-game losing streak. Cleveland ended up settling for a field goal.

Instead, Cleveland fell to the shorthanded Steelers, 27-24, in overtime Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field in a game that watched the AFC North champions overcome a dismal first half and sputtering offense. Others include Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Maurkice Pouncey.

Pittsburgh responded by going 80 yards on the ensuing possession, scoring a TD and knotting the game at 14 early in the fourth.

Rogers is now third on the Steelers in receiving yards and tied for second on the team in touchdown receptions. But Crowell fumbled on the next play, and Mike Mitchell recovered. You can usually tell by a player's body language that they're not in the best mood after they just got caught by the officials. The Steelers defense is only down a couple of starters but are playing very conservative. Williams took a screen pass 11 yards for the score.

The Browns enter the offseason without a clear answer at quarterback. Turned out, the Browns needed 68 yards to reach the end zone.

The initial call of a touchdown was reversed upon replay review, and the Steelers took over at their 20 still trailing 14-7. He rushed for 190 yards and two touchdowns.
