Browns avoid loss, tie Steelers 21-21 in sloppy game

However, the weirdest, wackiest game of the day came in the rainy-Cleveland conditions, where the Steelers tied the Browns 21-21. But Sutton's interception cut the Browns' comeback short.

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's for this reason - at least in part - that the Steelers haven't been interested in making Bell the richest running back in the history of the league.

"They broke through and were right there, so there wasn't much I could do about it", Gonzalez said. The game was delayed by weather twice, and lasted seven hours.

Pittsburgh still is a heavy favorite without Bell, but quarterback Tyrod Taylor, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and the new-look Browns will be hungry to pull off the upset.

"The personnel group got him out there", Browns coach Hue Jackson said.

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.

Gordon had only three passes thrown his way against the Steelers, but made the most of his only reception. It's better than a loss, sure, but we came in here ready to win.

Harrison wasn't the only offending Cleveland player as the Browns were called for 11 penalties for 87 yards.

Pittsburgh is habitually penciled in as AFC North victors and in the conversation with New England as the best team in the conference. It is not good enough.

Opinions as to whether to love or hate the Browns' 21-all battle with the Steelers vary, but there are some irrefutable applications about a tie. But after getting the ball back at their 1 with 43 seconds left, the Texans failed to reach midfield.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt (90) sacks Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor (5) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Cleveland. They put together a frantic offensive flurry in the fourth quarter.

Garoppolo finished 15 for 33 for 261 yards and a touchdown pass to rookie Dante Pettis. A fair question for the star running back to pose as he watched understudy James Conner race for 135 rushing yards and two total touchdowns while also coughing up a fumble.
