"Hell yeah, it feels like a loss", Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward said.
Mahomes immediately showed off chemistry developed with speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who had seven catches for 169 yards, while scoring three touchdowns (two receiving and a 91-yard punt return). "I'm sorry for using that kind of language, but if we settle for those, we're going to be an awfully (steamed) off bunch".
The 2018 Cleveland Browns, are the most promising squad the franchise has seen in nearly 14 years. Rookie Denzel Ward had two interceptions in his National Football League debut.
So, it doesn't look promising, at least early in the week, that Haden will be able to play on Sunday and that's just fine for the Steelers. "He is showing that he was worthy of being the first player drafted a year ago". So far this season, the Cleveland Browns have learned how to stop losing. "It's not just because I'm the backup cornerback, or I come into a game at a certain point in time".
Confusion arose because Gordon had missed a good part of training camp and preseason as part of his treatment for substance abuse.
The Browns revamped offensive line, with rookie Desmond Harrison at left tackle, surrendered - sacks.
"It's the nature of the game", DeCastro said.
When the game ultimately ended in that rare tied score, he took to Twitter and offered a curious response. We have to play better as an offensive unit.
Of course, because this is Cleveland, where quarterback criticism is passed down through generations, much of the postgame blame was directed at Taylor, who completed just 15 of 40 passes, got sacked seven times and missed a few open receivers in his first start for the Browns.
The 29th Browns starting quarterback since 1999, Taylor said he didn't get the ball into Gordon's hands more because the Steelers often schemed to eliminate him as a target.
The Browns also had a chance to win it in regulation and were driving for a potential game-winning field goal, but Tyrod Taylor's deep pass for Josh Gordon was underthrown and intercepted by Cameron Sutton with 16 seconds left. Former Pitt quarterback Nathan Peterman was pulled in the third quarter after going 5-for-18, 24 yards and two interceptions.
With the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell holding out, Conner played like a Pro Bowl running back, rushing for 135 yards 31 carries and two TDs.
Nothing was really doing for both teams in the first quarter, but Cleveland's defense flexed its muscles on Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as they forced him to turn the ball over on an interception by rookie cornerback Denzel Ward.
After that, they had the one-yard drive for a touchdown off the fumble but then moved the ball negative-2 yards with the next turnover and negative-1 on the final fumble before getting their field goal try blocked which led to the tie.
