In the second quarter, Cleveland was winning the field position game with some stout defense and nice returns, but the offense wasn’t able to gain much traction. Then, backed up in their own territory, the Steelers caught some good fortune.
Despite MLB Joe Schobert tipping a pass, the ball still deflected to WR Antonio Brown in stride for a 50-yard catch-and-run. Then running the two-minute drill, Pittsburgh converted on a 4-yard touchdown pass to TE Jesse James, giving Pittsburgh a 14-7 lead. The Steelers will get the ball to begin the third quarter.
