No-win situation: Browns can't finish in tie with Steelers

Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson felt the Pittsburgh Steelers were offsides on the blocked field goal attempt in overtime at First Energy Stadium

Aaron Rodgers threw three fourth quarter touchdowns to lead the Packers from a 20-3 deficit.

The Pittsburgh Steelers tied - yes, tied! - the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in an ugly 21-21 game.

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

On third-and-seven from the Cleveland eight-yard line, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger rolled to his left and lofted a pass out of the back of the end zone. Rookie Denzel Ward had two interceptions in his National Football League debut. "So we want that player to make an effort".

To that point, the Steelers had allowed one pass play of at least 40 yards. The first was a 38-yard toss to Rashard Higgins, followed by a 17-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon that tied the score at 21-21 with 1 minute, 58 seconds left in regulation.

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.

Speaking of beast mode, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt recorded four sacks and had eight tackles.

Williams was most incensed by the first code violation she received - for coaching from her box. "It's hard to generalise things".

NOTES: Jackson said a "miscommunication" resulted in Gordon starting Sunday after the coach had vehemently expressed there would be consequences for the receiver missing three-plus weeks of training camp to address his sobriety. I felt my feet get down.

"Disappointed for our fans", said an exasperated Jackson, who fell to 1-31-1 with Cleveland.

The Browns revamped offensive line, with rookie Desmond Harrison at left tackle, surrendered - sacks. "Our team has got to get better".

The last time a Browns game ended in a tie was November 19, 1989 against Kansas City, a 10-10 final. ". The guys fighting, coming back and giving us a chance. the defense did some good things".

The only signs of a hamstring injury he suffered during the second half of Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns were a couple of "cupping" marks left behind from the recently-completed treatment he received at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

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

On the punt, Jabrill Peppers called for a fair catch despite having 20 yards to run, and the Browns started their second drive in OT at their 19. Conner also did a nice job in pass protection, but he also lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter that jump-started a Browns comeback in a game that ended in a 21-21 tie.
