Steelers vs Browns Final score: Pittsburgh loses to Cleveland 29-17 in prime time

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns entered Week 3 Friday Night Football in Ohio facing similar circumstances. Both went into the game 1-1 and lost in Week 2. The Steelers lost to the New England Patriots and the Browns lost to the New York Jets, both losing on their courts.

For the visiting team, the story was about the team’s attack. Mitch Trubesky has faced a critical juncture in his time with the Steelers, and if the offense doesn’t start producing points, it could lead to changes after the prime-time match.

Cleveland won the inaugural coin toss, and was elected to start the game with football. After only one fall at the start, Brown shot the ball wide to give the Steelers their first possession of the game. Mitch Trubisky and attack match the Browns first before Presley Harvin is called to work.

When the Browns were forced to wager on their second drive, Miles Kelebro got a hand in the pot and the Steelers started with a field position in midfield. The offense was able to move into Chris Boswell’s field goal range, but on a stormy night, the 50-yard attempt sailed wide to the right.

Cleveland’s offense woke up with a good fielding position, and it was Nick Chap who prepared the attack after 37 yards passed the ball to the 10-yard line. Two games later, Brissett hit Amari Cooper in the end zone in the game’s first touchdown. After the extra point, Brown was 7-0 with 2:54 left in the first quarter.

The Steelers needed a big play, and he went above and beyond in his next drive. The biggest play was the one-handed grab by George Pickens at 37 yards that brought the team into the red.

Jaylen Warren moved the ball to the 4-yard line at the end of the first quarter. In the first game of the second quarter, Brown’s defender Nagy Harris ran over on his way to a quick touchdown. Boswell’s subsequent point was good, making the score 7-7.

Brown’s attack dominated the field after the Steelers tied the game, and they moved the ball around with ease. This time, instead of Nick Chubb, it was Karim Hunt taking damage to the Steelers’ defense. When Cleveland got into the red, Brissett threw his second touchdown pass, this one to David Njoku. However, the extra point was wasted and it was 13-7 with 8:58 left in the game.

Nobody was ready for the penalty shootout, but the Steelers took the ball and Nagy Harris rode the field on the next drive. Throw in the run by receptions Jaylen Warren and Diontae Johnson and set up the first position and goal. In second place, Mitch Trubesky held the ball and ran the ball into the end zone to score.

Chris Boswell’s extra point was good, giving the Steelers a 14-13 lead with 3:50 left in the second quarter.

It looked as if Brown was moving into the scoring area, but on 4 and 2 out of goal the pass for Amari Cooper fell incomplete after video review. Trubisky quickly moved the ball to the Cleveland area, but the push ended without points, keeping the score 14-13 in the first half.

To start the second half, the Steelers moved the ball into the Cleveland area, but when it looked like they were going to add their total points, the penalty shootout resulted in another Presley Harvin kick.

Brissett and his cohorts continued to rally the squares of defense against the Steelers’ defense, but again, as the pitch shortened, the defense stood tall. Driving yielded a field goal, taking Brown’s score 16 to 14, with 2:31 remaining in the third quarter.

Three times after Pittsburgh, Brown’s attack moved steadily into the field. They drove a 6-minute drive down Nick Chubb to extend Cleveland’s lead. After the extra point, the score was 23-14 with 9:28 remaining in regulation.

The Steelers posted three straight doubles after the Cleveland touchdown, and it took two-minute attack urgency to trigger the offense. Big passes to Pat Freiermuth moved the ball into the Cleveland area with ease, but driving resulted in no more than a 40-yard field goal from Boswell. She scored from 23 to 17 with 1:48 remaining on the list.

Boswell’s ensuing kick didn’t work, leaving Cleveland with football and the Steelers only once. That wasn’t enough, and after the Steelers side game ended with a stumble in the end zone, the final score was 29-17.

The loss moved the Steelers’ record to 1-2 on the season as they have an extended hiatus before hosting the New York Jets at Acrisure Stadium in Week 4. Be sure to follow BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they press throughout the regular season.
