Down 21-7 in the fourth quarter, the Browns were on the verge of their 18th straight loss.

Cleveland ended its 17-game losing streak on Sunday with a 21-21 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Yet instead of the typically raucous two-hour bus ride back to Pittsburgh, the Steelers drove quietly through the remnants of a hurricane trying not to get caught up in the storm.

Save for the fumble - which came when Garrett expertly punched the ball loose - the play of Conner wasn't among them.

But according to the National Football League, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett should not have been penalized for roughing the passer. The third one, they just let the game go to the half - which was understandable and deserves a pass.

Peppers returned the fumble to the Pittsburgh one-yard line, and on the next play, running back Carlos Hyde pushed the ball across the goal line and into the end zone for his first touchdown as a member of the Browns.

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

"We have been practicing fade balls all week, the offseason and training camp", Gordon told reporters. As a group, I feel like we're on the rise. "Nothing", said Jackson, who has turned play calling over to coordinator Todd Haley this season.

The Browns revamped offensive line, with rookie Desmond Harrison at left tackle, surrendered - sacks. Got to play better. You take the turnovers, and the penalties that we had and our inability to do some things early offensively, those are huge keys to a tie game. ". The guys fighting, coming back and giving us a chance. the defense did some good things". He completed just 15-of-40 passes for 197 yards with a touchdown and a pick.

Despite the absence of Le'Veon Bell on the Steelers, Pittsburgh still had many playmakers on the field, including James Conner, who replaced Bell valiantly.

Cousins connected with Stefon Diggs in the second quarter and Kyle Rudolph in the third quarter for scores, and the defense finished the job with three sacks and three second-half interceptions of Garoppolo. It's somewhat understandable after the Steelers tied a much-improved Cleveland Browns team 21-21. Chris Boswell and Zane Gonzales each missed a field goal in overtime. The Browns and the Steelers tied at 21.
