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

Jackson wouldn't pinpoint Taylor's problems in the opener - he led the team in rushing and ran for a TD - but made it clear the 28-year-old had better step up his game.

Player holdouts are nothing new, of course, but what makes Bell's case different is that his teammates appeared genuinely shocked that he didn't return to Pittsburgh last week.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hardly looked like a future Hall of Famer, throwing three interceptions in the first half and losing two fumbles. "This is a new year, this a new opportunity for this organization and football team, myself included".

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.

"When it snapped, I'm just trying to do my job and get penetration", Watt said of his game-saving block. He also caught one pass for three yards.

"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.

The Ravens get the quickest turnaround of the bunch, as the team will head to Cincinatti to play the Bengals on Thursday at 8:20 p.m. It's better than a loss, sure, but we came in here ready to win. It is not good enough.

Of course, because this is Cleveland, where quarterback criticism is passed down through generations, much of the postgame blame was directed at Taylor, who completed just 15 of 40 passes, got sacked seven times and missed a few open receivers in his first start for the Browns. The Browns and the Steelers tied at 21. But after getting the ball back at their 1 with 43 seconds left, the Texans failed to reach midfield.

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.

Antonio Brown caught nine balls for 93 yards.

Garrett, who delivered the monster game he promised, forced Steelers running back James Conner to fumble with 7:36 left, and Peppers recovered and returned the ball 16 yards to the 1.
