- QB: It wasn't pretty in the second half for Dorian Thompson-Robinson, but he came through at the end of the game to help get a win for Cleveland. If I'm being optimistic, the rookie was way more calm than his first start, and I think that was the message all week to him: get the ball out quick, don't try to do too much, and if it's been too long, check it down. That was a good gameplan for him, but there was a little TOO much of it, to the point where the Steelers' defense said "F this" and just glued to the receivers for short throws in the second half. Now it is Kevin Stefanski's job to build off of what worked with DTR, and give him a little more to work with downfield next week.
- RB: The running game started OK for the Browns, but started to fizzle put. It did seem a little odd that Jerome Ford disappeared for much of the second half, yielding those carries to Kareem Hunt instead. Hunt's touchdown streak ended, but Ford did get a first half touchdown after a replay review.
- WR: There was no trickery this week with Elijah Moore: he was just solid in sitting down in the open holes in the defense and securing the catch. He was the Browns' highest-graded receiver this week by PFF, grading out to a 61.6. I was surprised that DTR's high school teammate, Cedric Tillman, only had 1 short catch. Amari Cooper came up with some nice grabs in key moments.
- TE: David Njoku no doubt still contributed to the Browns win, but he was apologetic to fans after the game, as there were about four more passes that were flat out drops by him. Harrison Bryant's blocking received high marks for the second week in a row, as he graded out to a 75.3 this week by PFF (second-highest on offense).
Great team win but that shxt was unacceptable. I gotta do better; thankful for my brothers for fighting till the end. 1-0— Chief David Njoku (@David_Njoku80) November 19, 2023
- OL: The resurgence of Wyatt Teller continued this week, as he was the Browns' highest-graded offensive player, grading out to an 80.9. Dawand Jones split time with James Hudson at right tackle, but while Jones was in there, he graded out to a 68.9 and helped hold the Steelers' T.J. Watt to his lowest grade of the season.

Jones was battling through injuries all week leading up to the game. In fact, he was pretty much only in on third… pic.twitter.com/vNdSO9R5wJ
