The score of this game is what I find so shocking. Last year the Browns ended their season with a 1-15 record, and here they are starting off 0-1, which isn’t surprising. The Browns opened up with a blocked punt touchdown, Steelers take an early lead.
But wait, the Browns came out looking like the same old team, and left looking like a somewhat improved team?! The Steelers had 3 touchdowns, and an interception. The Browns had 2 touchdowns, a field goal, a successful two point conversion, and an interception.
If you heard that play by play and didn’t know who was playing, I would bet you would have wanted to watch that game. On paper this was definitely a good game. The only issue I have is that this could be a week one jitters for the Steelers. Their defense had some highlights, but they also went up against the Browns. Granted the Browns a highly improved O-line, which I am very excited about, but I am still surprised the Steelers gave up 18 points to them. Confession; I am rooting for the Browns here. I want to believe that they are improving and are going to be a team contending in the NFL, but I think it is highly possible that the Steelers had a poor performance. Whatever the case, I am impressed with this game. Steelers on top 21-18.
I can’t wait to see what the Browns have in store for us this season.
