Ravens, Redskins earn big wins, Steelers tie on road with Browns

  • Le'Veon Bell posts emoji after watching Steelers tie

They put together a frantic offensive flurry in the fourth quarter.

The Browns, who have won exactly one game in the last two seasons, kick off the 2018 campaign at home against the AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

Watt capped a brilliant performance by blocking Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field-goal try with 9 seconds left to preserve the tie for the Steelers, whose drama-filled week around Le'Veon Bell ended with more theatrics.

With the Browns trailing 21-14, Gordon leaped and snagged Taylor's 17-yard pass over Steelers cornerback Cameron Sutton for a touchdown with 1:58 left in regulation. Conner had 31 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns.

"I think he is going to have a great year", Browns coach Hue Jackson said.

In his debut with Cleveland, Tyrod Taylor completed 15 of 40 passes for 197 yards.

Jackson stiffened when he was asked what kind of leash he intends to have on Taylor, who was acquired in March from Buffalo and will start until the Browns feel the No. 1 overall pick Mayfield is ready.


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.

Harrison Smith, who sacked Garoppolo on a third-down safety blitz and had an interception late in the fourth quarter, recovered a fumble by Alfred Morris at the 2-yard line after Linval Joseph stripped the ball just in front of the goal line late in the first half.

"Tyrod got hit way too much", left guard Joel Bitonio said. In that game, he came out of the gate hot with two sacks and an interception. Ask DeCastro why they struggled so much slowing down Browns' defensive end Myles Garrett but don't ask him if things could be better if Bell had been there.

Gordon had only three passes thrown his way against the Steelers, but made the most of his only reception.

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

Brown finished with nine receptions for 93 yards receiving and a touchdown. Pittsburgh losing doesn't help quiet the debate that the offense needs its playmaking running back to win games. But the Browns punt from their own 26 after Bud Dupree batted a pass intended for Jarvis Landry.
