breaking down browns game

CLEVELAND — Maybe it was the proximity, with the cities separated by only 130-some miles of easy turnpike driving. Maybe it was because the cities were more alike than either populace would care to admit. Whatever it was, there long has been a rivalry between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and when it came to football, a sport that always has been equally important to the people of Western Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio, well, the rivalry was bitter. When the Cleveland Browns were absorbed into the National Football League from the All-American Football Conference for the 1950 season, the team’s respective owners quickly learned that the contempt bred by the proximity and familiarity of the two cities was good box office. Steelers vs. Browns was staged at least twice a season from 1950…

talking about dupree’s development, fitzpatrick and ball-hawking safeties

Q. How would you assess Bud Dupree’s play to this point in the season? He’s been impactful. He has been good against the run and the pass. He’s been a catalyst for our group emotionally, and I think that’s not something revealed through stats or highlights, but it’s cool to watch a guy come into his mid-20s who has been in a system for a number of years and establish a position within the group and is looked to as a catalyst for energy. He does a really good job of leading the group in that way. The guys gravitate to him from an emotional standpoint, so not only is he making plays for us, but he’s an emotional catalyst for the group as well. Guys love to get fired up…

cleveland game coverage

8:25 p.m. – What Went Wrong: The Browns decided to put the Steelers offense on the field first, and it turned out to be a wise decision. Starting at the 22-yard line, the Steelers promptly went three-and-out, with consecutive James Conner runs netting 0 yards and then Mason Rudolph throwing the ball away while under pressure from Morgan Burnett. After a Jordan Berry punt that netted 43 yards, the Browns took possession at their 35-yard line. 8:31 p.m. – What Went Wrong: Things went from bad to worse for the Steelers because after their offense went three-and-out, the Browns covered 65 yards in five plays to take a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard sneak by Baker Mayfield that followed a 42-yard completion to Odell Beckham. There was 11:07 left in the…

players react to ugly incident

Associate Editor CLEVELAND — It was an abysmal 21-7 loss for the Steelers to their geographic rivals, but for whatever reason the Cleveland Browns — or at least Myles Garrett — turned it criminal. The Steelers were down to their final 14 seconds when quarterback Mason Rudolph threw a screen pass to Trey Edmunds at the Pittsburgh 17. Garrett, the Browns’ pass-rushing star, became incited after hitting Rudolph. With Garrett lying on top of the quarterback, Rudolph tried to push him off. Garrett suddenly became incensed and ripped Rudolph’s helmet off. David DeCastro tried to push Garrett away as Rudolph came at Garrett, who then swung the helmet and hit Rudolph flush on the head. Maurkice Pouncey threw a flurry of punches at Garrett and kicked him once and both players were ejected,…

l.a. rams game coverage

4:28 p.m. – What Went Wrong: The Steelers got the ball first, and Mason Rudolph attempted passes on each of the first two plays. His first attempt was to Nick Vannett and was incomplete, but linebacker Troy Reeder was penalized 15 yards for a helmet-to-helmet hit. Rudolph’s second attempt was overthrown for Vance McDonald, and the third play never had a chance because Maurkice Pouncey’s shotgun snap went over Rudolph’s head and was recovered by Dante Fowler and returned 25 yards for a Rams touchdown that gave the visitor’s a 7-0 lead with 14:46 left in the first quarter. 4:43 p.m. – What Went Right: The Rams’ first offensive series netted one first down before having to punt. The big play was a backward pass intended for Todd Gurley that was…
