Pittsburgh started with a three-and-out, and Cleveland’s first drive of the 2018 season started with a couple of back-to-back false starts on the offensive line. Tyrod Taylor scrambled for a long third down conversion, but a few pass plays (one of which included a missed defenseless receiver penalty) led to a punt after that.
With both offenses struggling, the Steelers got the first big play of the first half on a pass play, allowing them to get into the red zone. But then rookie CB Denzel Ward made a diving interception to cut in front of a receiver after QB Ben Roethlisberger tried to make something happen on a play that had broken down.
The Browns haven’t been able to muster a whole lot on offense, though. The Steelers have the ball, scoreless, as we head to the second quarter.
