Joe Haden’s interception seals Steelers’ victory in revenge game

Leave it to a former Brown to seal the Steelers’ 20-13 victory.

Joe Haden‘s pick of Baker Mayfield with 1:06 remaining on a pass intended for Jarvis Landry kept the Steelers’ playoff hopes alive, dashed those of the Browns and gave Pittsburgh revenge in a rematch from two weeks ago.

The Steelers moved to 7-5, while the Browns fell to 5-7 in seeing their three-game winning streak come to an end. It also likely means Cleveland won’t see the postseason again after the season began with such high hopes.

The teams were on their best behavior for most of the day, with only Diontae Johnson losing his cool. He drew a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty in the third quarter.

Of course, most of those involved in the fight from two weeks ago were either suspended or, in the case of Mason Rudolph, benched.

The Browns scored the first 10 points as the Steelers gained only 2 yards in the first quarter, but it was all Pittsburgh for most of the final three quarters.

Baker Mayfield injured his hand on the helmet of Bud Dupree at the end of the first half. He played the second half wearing a glove and reportedly with it taped up, but completed only 8 of 15 passes for 98 yards and an interception in the second half, while losing a fumble.

Dupree had six tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass breakup.

Devlin Hodges got off to a rough start but rallied to finish 14-of-21 for 212 yards with a touchdown and an interception. James Washington had four catches for 111 yards and a touchdown.

    Steelers in trouble next week; they barely….barely made it out of Cincinnatti

    ___________

    Maybe save that trash talking until you accomplish something ….. probably would’ve been nice to have Myles Garrett to apply some pressure against Hodges hey 😉 oh well

  2. Missing a first ballot HoF QB, a pro-bowl RB, a pro-bowl WR, an all-pro center and the Steelers still own the Browns. When you hire a buffoon like Kitchens, you should expect nothing less.

  3. Enjoy that nice long bus ride back to Cleveland. At least you will have time to figure out the T shirt size you can order from your head coach

  4. They’ve lost games this season, but against a fourth string camp QB, three pro bowlers out Cntr, Wr, Rb, 2 practice squad WR’s playing…that has to be the worst loss for Cleveland with everything on the line.

    Garrett will still end up in the Hall of Fame and Mason Rudolph is playing his last game as a starter………
    I know, I know, I called it. I’m good like that. Browns will still get the W this week even though the Steelers upgraded at qb.

    You sure did call it 🙂 you are so smart big guy 😉

  6. Where’s TimTebowGodOfFootballKarma? Are you Tebowing hoping the Steelers lost? Don’t lose the faith brotha.

  7. Steelers proved that game two weeks ago was just a fluke. The Ravens will do the exact same thing in a few weeks as Jackson carves them up through the air and on the ground. Stick a fork in Cleveland, the paper champs are done.

    Yep.

  9. Steelers did not “start it,” but they did finish it. Cleveland’s playoffs hope, that is.

    See ya next year. Hopefully, Mr. Garrett will be joining in the fun by then.

  10. Didn’t the Browns CRUSH the Steelers first game? If I’m not mistaken, seems like the split the series this year. Or can’t you you Pittsburgh fans add?

  11. How adorable that the Steelers keep knocking themselves further and further away from a decent draft pick. Keep dreaming about that wildcard spot cause it’s going to be extra sweet watching your dreams get shattered while you stare up at some Jumbotron on week 17.

    ============
    CRUSH might be an overstatement. Though illegal hits to the helmet did CONCUSS 2 of the Steelers WRs. Perhaps that is what you meant by CRUSH?
