Thursday Night Football, Browns Vs. Steelers Final Score: Pittsburgh Walks Away With A Win, 14-3

To the surprise of most, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger came back out after halftime and got back on the football field. He was visibly hobbled, struggling to move around in the pocket. The Steelers offense became naturally run centric, but struggled to score in the third quarter. Luckily for the Steelers however, the Browns offense didn't fair much better as both teams went scoreless in the third quarter.

The fourth quarter started with the Steelers having the football and thanks to two long passes by a hobbled Roethlisberger, the Steelers were right on the goal line. A long pass to Mike Wallace looked initially like a touchdown, but after review Wallace's knee was down. While it looked like a sure thing the Steelers would score from the goal line, thanks in part to some spectacular play by linebacker Chris Gocong, the Browns made a goal line stand.

The Browns couldn't do much backed up on their own goal, but after punting the ball to the Steelers were able to pick off an errant throw by Roethlisberger. Big Ben was picked off in part because of his leg injury, as he couldn't step into the throw. On the ensuing Browns drive, McCoy was crushed by James Harrison in a hit that will undoubtedly bring a fine. Two plays later, McCoy was back into the football game but ended the drive throwing a bad interception in the endzone.

After the interception, Roethlisberger connected with Antonio Brown on a 79-yard catch and run touchdown, with some nifty moves by Brown to avoid some Browns defensive backs. The touchdown all but put the game away for the Steelers as they walked away with a 14-3 victory. Despite being hobbled with a leg injury, Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 out of 22 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns. Antonio Brown had a huge night for the Steelers, hauling in five catches for 151 yards and a touchdown.

It was another rough outing for Colt McCoy and the Browns offense, with McCoy completing just 18 of 35 passes and throwing two interceptions. Once again, the Browns were kept out of the endzone.
