Steelers fail to hold 14-point fourth quarter lead/Tie Browns

Gordon pulled off the sensational snare in the fourth quarter of the 21-21 AFC North matchup on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

Cleveland ended its 17-game losing streak on Sunday with a 21-21 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who prevented the Browns from getting their first victory since 2016 when linebacker T.J. Watt blocked Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field-goal attempt with 9 seconds left in OT.

The Browns, trailing 7-0 at the half, came out in the third quarter and ran it down to the Steelers' throats to the tune of 76 yards on an all-rush 10-play TD drive.

Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward intercepted Roethlisberger twice in his National Football League debut.

Save for the fumble - which came when Garrett expertly punched the ball loose - the play of Conner wasn't among them. He also caught one pass for three yards. Carlos Hyde scored on a 1-yard rush and Tyrod Taylor threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon.

The Browns defense, as dominant as it had been all preseason, got six takeaways: three interceptions and three fumble recoveries, including one off a strip-sack by Myles Garrett.

It was another positive for Gordon, who missed most of training camp to address health issues and was playing in his first season opener since 2012 because of drug and alcohol addictions. Jarvis Landry was the Cleveland Browns leading receiver with seven catches for 106 yards receiving.

The Browns revamped offensive line, with rookie Desmond Harrison at left tackle, surrendered - sacks.

"Disappointed", Jackson said of the infractions. Got to play better. ". The guys fighting, coming back and giving us a chance. the defense did some good things".

Browns: DE Emmanuel Ogbah left briefly with an ankle injury in the first quarter but returned.

As Le'Veon Bell continues to stay away from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team does not plan to trade the star running back or rescind his franchise tag, sources told ESPN. Conner rushed for 135 yards on 31 carries and two touchdowns, and he also caught five passes for 57 more yards to finish with 36 touches for 192 yards from scrimmage.

The beleaguered Browns have two of those losses and now the tie.
