The Browns saw their three game win streak end Sunday in Pittsburgh with a 20-13 loss to the Steelers. The Browns fall to 5-7 and close to being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
After starting strong with a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, not much went well for Cleveland after that. Pittsburgh went with third string quarterback Devlin Hodges and at times the Browns made him look like an All – Pro.
Hodges hit enough passes when he needed to going 14 for 21 for 212 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The Browns defense didn’t help itself with numerous missed tackles and only one sack.
Baker Mayfield meanwhile, was constantly harassed by the Steelers defense. Mayfield was sacked five times and was under constant pressure. He threw for 196 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Cleveland’s running game was non-existent in the second half as Nick Chubb ran for 58 yards on 16 carries.
