Post-Game Thread: Another Loss to Pittsburgh

New, comments

Will it ever end?

The Browns suffered another loss to the Steelers Sunday, this time losing by a final score of 27-14. The Browns started the game using the Wildcat formation early and often with Joshua Cribbs. It started off effective, until the drops at the wide receiver position started to plague the Browns again. After Cribbs was intercepted, the Steelers later went on to go up 14-0.

Then, Cribbs' abilities played a factor again, as he returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown to keep the Browns within striking distance heading into halftime.

Derek Anderson had his best drive of the game to start the second half, connecting several times with Mohamed Massaquoi en route to an offensive touchdown. The Browns were down just 17-14 with 11:39 left in the third quarter.

Our offense couldn't muster anything after that. There was a period in which both teams traded turnovers, but eventually, the Steelers put the game away thanks to the passing of Ben Roethlisberger.

It wasn't a horrible game to watch, but when you're dominated 543 to 197 in total yardage, you shouldn't expect a victory.
