There’s been plenty of talk this season that the Browns are improving. And maybe they are. But they’re still the worst team in the AFC North.
The Steelers made that crystal clear today in Cleveland, going on the road and whipping the Browns in all phases of the game, winning 27-11.
Cleveland’s offense just couldn’t get anything going. With starter Jason Campbell in the game, they managed just three points. Then Campbell left with a head injury, and Brandon Weeden was his usual terrible self.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was efficient if not spectacular, completing 22 of 34 passes for 217 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
But the story of this game was more about what the Browns did badly than about what the Steelers did well. Cleveland is still a last-place team.
