The Browns pinned the Steelers back early in the quarter and forced another three-and-out. After the ensuing punt by Pittsburgh, Cleveland had good starting field position at their own 47 yard line. Just as Cleveland was moving the ball, though, a false start by Alex Mack led to a longer conversion distance, and Cleveland punted again, pinning Pittsburgh back for the second series in a row.

The Steelers drove the ball to midfield to change the field position back in their favor, but had to punt back to the Browns. That's when a familiar scene happened -- our quarterback (Jason Campbell) went down, and Brandon Weeden had to come in. His zipping third-down pass was dropped by tight end Jordan Cameron, and the Steelers had good field position after a punt. Two plays later, Antonio Brown beat cornerback Joe Haden for a 41-yard touchdown, and the Steelers took a 10-3 lead.

Campbell returned for the Browns' next offensive series before the end of the half, but as Cleveland was driving, running back Chris Ogbonnaya fumbled for the second week in a row, giving the Steelers good field position. Pittsburgh capitalized with a field goal to go up 13-3 heading into the half. The Browns will get the ball first in the third quarter.
