How ugly tie could be priceless December gift for Browns

Adjust Comment Print

Well, the Browns didn't lose.

In a game that is already in contention for the ugliest game of the year, a tilt between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns ended in poetic fashion. Chris Boswell and Zane Gonzales each missed a field goal in overtime.

It was the NFL's first tie in Week 1 since 1971 and the league's first overall since Washington and Cincinnati ended in a 27-27 deadlock on October 30, 2016.

Garrett, who delivered the monster game he promised, forced Steelers running back James Conner to fumble with 7:36 left, and Peppers recovered and returned the ball 16 yards to the 1.

The fourth quarter touchdowns from the Browns came from a Carlos Hyde run and a Tyrod Taylor pass to Josh Gordon.

Conner had 31 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the game. Juju Smith-Schuster had five catches for 119 yards. And, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, teams with a plus-5 turnover differential or better are 132-4-1 since 1999.

On third-and-11, Fitzpatrick needed to make one more play - and did. It was capped by Taylor's 20-yard TD run, on which he scrambled up the left side and dove over Artie Burns at the pylon. Next week is a showdown with Kansas City's explosive offense, a road trip to a surprisingly good Tampa Bay team, followed by games against the Falcons and Ravens.

The Browns went three-and-out on their first three drives in overtime. Mike Hughes turned one pick into a 28-yard touchdown return, the first by a rookie in a Vikings season opener.

Roethlisberger threw three interceptions in the first half and finished 23 of 41 for 335 yards, throwing a 22-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to Antonio Brown. Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same at San Francisco's game at Minnesota. On Conner's first career touchdown, the offensive line that has been critical of Bell mobbed his replacement.

The Steelers were without the team's best running back.

On first-and-10 from the Pittsburgh 17-yard line, Taylor lofted a pass down the right sideline for Gordon, who outjumped a defender in coverage and hauled in the catch.
