Takeaways from the Steelers 21-18 win over the Browns

Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer threw his first touchdown pass of his National Football League career with about four minutes left in the game. Linebacker Tyler Matakevich knifed through the middle of the line to swat the ball and Anthony Chickillo fell on it in the end zone for the touchdown.

The Cleveland Browns are building for the future - and it's a good thing, too, because the present looks very grim indeed.

The short video, just less than a minute in length, featured messages from several players, including Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas, quarterback DeShone Kizer, linebackers Jamie Collins and Christian Kirksey, and coach Hue Jackson.




The drive took 7 plays, covered 73 yards and ran 3:05 off the clock. James made the catch with 45 seconds left in the second quarter. The Steelers came at the rookie quarterback in waves and sacked the young signal caller seven times. The offseason saw the departure of long-time defensive stalwart Lawrence Timmons, the addition of first-round pick T.J. Watt and the contract extension of Stephon Tuitt. While the narrative seems set up for big days from the front seven, they will need to deliver between the lines on Sunday to prove that they can provide the type of performances to allow the team to be successful.

At one point during the game, QB Ben Roethlisberger got into it with a Browns defender and flopped after getting pushed trying to draw a flag. QB Cody Kessler, who is 0-8 as a starter last season with the Browns a year ago, was inactive.
