  • Cleveland Browns 2018 new season begins as Browns battle Steelers

With the tie score at the end of OT, the result of a blocked punt, the Cleveland Browns succeeded in breaking a negative record that had them 17 games deep in losing-ness.

When the ball deflected off T.J. Watt's left hand and fluttered to a water-logged landing, well short of the crossbar, there was nothing more the Browns could do.

They failed to win the game despite getting six takeaways by their opportunistic defense: three interceptions and three fumble recoveries. Against one of the best teams in the league - best team in this division - if we can stand toe-to-toe with them, we can stand toe-to-toe with anybody. "I threw my hand up at the last minute, and it hit my hand - tie game".

Both the interception - and the touchdown - came later in the game when Taylor and the Browns started to open things up. The third one, they just let the game go to the half - which was understandable and deserves a pass.

"We have been practicing fade balls all week, the offseason and training camp", Gordon told reporters.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was not supposed to start the 2018 regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium, but low and behold, he was on the field for the first play of the game between the AFC North Division rivals.

Deadly quake and landslides hit Japan
Jebi, the strongest typhoon to hit the country in 25 years, killed at least 10 people and caused widespread damage and disruption. In the small, rural town of Atsuma, more than 20 people remained missing on Friday after landslides wrecked and buried houses.

The Ravens get the quickest turnaround of the bunch, as the team will head to Cincinatti to play the Bengals on Thursday at 8:20 p.m.

"Not good enough", Jackson said. We have to play better as an offensive unit. The Browns and the Steelers tied at 21.

As Le'Veon Bell continued his holdout, James Conner filled in for the Steelers and scored two touchdowns while running for 135 yards.

The only signs of a hamstring injury he suffered during the second half of Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns were a couple of "cupping" marks left behind from the recently-completed treatment he received at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

Garoppolo finished 15 for 33 for 261 yards and a touchdown pass to rookie Dante Pettis.
