    Browns 21 Steelers 20


    This game was back and forth the whole 4th quarter. It was one of those games where you though you had "lost" or "won" the game six times over.


    4th Quarter:

    The Browns were down by 3 in the 4th quarter with the Steelers driving right down the field into the Browns redzone. Big Ben threw a pass that was picked off by Joe Haden and returned 70 yards for a TD. The Browns were up by 4 after that huge turnover. The momentum had shifted and the Browns were sitting pretty, that was...until Big Ben hit TE Jake Ballard on a 4th and 5 play for a 30 plus yard TD pass. This play was almost a backbreaker. The Browns had fought back and now faced a certain loss as they were losing by 3 and had to punt the ball back to Pittsburgh on their next offensive possesion. The Steelers drove down and kicked a field goal with 1 minute and 35 seconds remaining. The Steelers were up by 6 with close to a minute left. The Browns
    completed a few passes and Michael Vick escaped pressure from his left side and scampered into the endzone from ten yards out. The extra point was made and the Browns were UP BY ONE...when the game was thought to be over.

    The Steelers would mount an impressive drive nearing field goal range but then threw an interception to LB T. Davis to close the game out.
