Steelers move forward after 'very surreal' tie with Browns

Steelers move forward after 'very surreal' tie with Browns”

The Steelers knew exactly how the Browns felt.

The Steelers, who blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, also wasted their chance to escape with a win when Chris Boswell was wide left on a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 1:44 remaining in the extra period.

It was a huge play in this game, as it pulled the Browns to a tie at 7-7.

"It's the nature of the game", DeCastro said. They believe they'll get better. Again, I think the guys can see that we're an improved football team, but there are some areas we have to clean up and clean up fast, and we will. We were not able to get it done. "A tie. a tie".

Cousins connected with Stefon Diggs in the second quarter and Kyle Rudolph in the third quarter for scores, and the defense finished the job with three sacks and three second-half interceptions of Garoppolo.

They failed to win the game despite getting six takeaways by their opportunistic defense: three interceptions and three fumble recoveries.

Taylor had moments of indecisiveness Sunday, but that may have had as much to do with Pittsburgh's pass rush and an offense with several new faces, including rookie left tackle Desmond Harrison. Roethlisberger completed 23-of-41 passes for 335 yards one touchdown and three interceptions. He was sacked four times and stripped twice, finishing with a rating of 51.4.

To that point, the Steelers had allowed one pass play of at least 40 yards.

When the ball deflected off T.J. Watt's left hand and fluttered to a water-logged landing, well short of the crossbar, there was nothing more the Browns could do. Roosevelt Nix got penetration, and Britton Colquitt uncorked a 29-yard punt to start Pittsburgh at its own 45. Tyrod Taylor dropped back and released a pass to the sideline to try and get a big gain to get the Browns in field goal range. The third one, they just let the game go to the half - which was understandable and deserves a pass.

With the Steelers looking to burn time off of the clock, Roethlisberger handed off to running back James Conner, but Garrett jarred the ball loose and strong safety Jabrill Peppers recovered the fumble at the Pittsburgh 17-yard line. Carlos Hyde punched it in to narrow the gap to 21-14. He then lobbed up a jump ball after seeing Gordon lined up in single coverage against Cameron Sutton. His only catch was a game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter.
