On Thursday night, Jacoby Brissett and the Cleveland Browns defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, though it wasn’t always ideal. At FirstEnergy Stadium, the Browns defeated the Steelers 29-17 courtesy of a lengthy touchdown drive to start the fourth quarter and a last-second defensive touchdown. The victory provides the Browns an advantage over a divisional foe and helps them forget their defeat to the New York Jets on Sunday.
Nick Chubb and Jacoby Brissett lead the Browns beat the Steelers on Thursday Night Football
As the Browns’ starter in place of Deshaun Watson on Thursday, Brissett completed 21 of his 31 passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns, probably his greatest outing. Nick Chubb, a running back, recorded 113 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown for his second 100-yard performance of the year.
Following the victory, Chubb declared on Amazon Prime Video, “Jacoby’s a dog man.” “He’s a tremendous leader for us, he speaks up, and he creates plays. He’s going to write the play we need for us.
Brissett and Chubb guided the Browns down the field on an 11-play, 80-yard drive that gave them a two-point lead to begin the fourth quarter. With the exception of a long, 32-yard pass to Amari Cooper, Chubb handled
Then, Mitch Trubisky of the Pittsburgh Steelers ran in another to give his team a lead at the half.
Apart from those touchdown drives, the Steelers had trouble generating any offensively. Before Trubisky put them in scoring position following Cleveland’s score in the fourth quarter, they had two straight three-and-outs on both sides. In order to secure the defeat, Pittsburgh settled for a field goal and then failed to convert the onside kick.
most of the drive on the ground.
After a late, promising drive of their own, the Steelers converted a field goal for the first time in a while and recovered the ball within their own 5-yard line in the waning seconds. But after a disastrous final play, Denzel Ward recovered a fumble in the end zone following a series of laterals to give Cleveland a 12-point victory.
In the first half, Brissett had two touchdown passes while accumulating 134 yards, the first going to Cooper for an 11-yard score and the second to David Njoku for a 7-yard score. If not for a failed extra point attempt, they would have been tied going into the break.
In the first half, Steelers receiver George Pickens was the star and kept Pittsburgh in the game. Pickens’ one-handed extended catch in the first quarter, which led to the Steelers’ opening score of the game, might very well be the catch of the season.
In total, Trubisky completed 19 of his 31 passes for 209 yards and one rushing touchdown. Najee Harris had 56 yards on the ground on 15 carries, contributing to Pittsburgh’s other touchdown. After losing to the New England Patriots on Sunday, the Steelers have now suffered two straight defeats.
Anthony Walker, a linebacker with the Browns, suffered a shot to the face and then had his leg planted on, forcing him to leave the field in the third quarter.
Chukwuma Okorafor knocked Walker to the ground and then leaped on top of him to hold him there. James Daniels, a lineman with the Steelers, was spotted unintentionally treading on Walker’s leg as he lay on the ground.
Walker was removed from the field and placed on a cart with an air cast on his leg. He never came back. Kevin Stefanski, the head coach of the Browns, later claimed that Walker had damaged his knee.
When he was injured, Walker had made a team-high six tackles overall. In the first two games of the season for the Browns, where he is in his second season, the 27-year-old had a total of seven tackles.
