Browns-Steelers Post Game Notes

  • Tight end Benjamin Watson recorded a game-high seven receptions for 67 yards. He finished the season with a team-best 68 receptions and 763 yards. His reception total is the sixth-most in a single-season by a Browns tight end and his yardage total is the eighth-most. He joins Ozzie Newsome (1981-85) as the only Browns tight ends to lead the club in both receptions and receiving yards in the same season. Watson is the first tight end to lead the Browns in receiving yards since Newsome in 1985.
  • Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy completed 20 of 41 passes for 209 yards with one touchdown. He led the Browns this season with 1,576 passing yards and joins Bernie Kosar (1985) and Tim Couch (1999) as the only rookies to lead the Browns in passing yards.
  • Wide receiver Brian Robiskie hauled in two passes for 35 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown. He became the first Browns wide receiver to register a receiving touchdown in three consecutive games since Braylon Edwards in 2007 (Weeks 12-14).
    • Rookie defensive back T.J. Ward tied for the team-lead today with seven tackles and led the club with 105 on the season. The last rookie to lead the Browns in tackles was linebacker Wali Rainer in 1999.  Ward also led the team with 18 special teams tackles and became the first player to lead the Browns in both defensive and special teams tackles since their return in 1999.
  • With 34 total return yards today, wide receiver Joshua Cribbs passed Michael Bates (9,154) for 10th on the NFL career list. Cribbs has racked up 9,172 career return yards.

  • With one reception today, running back Peyton Hillis recorded his 61 of the season, which is tied for fifth-most in a single-season by a Browns running back. Greg Pruitt holds the team record for catches by a running back with 65 set in 1981.
  • Defensive back Sheldon Brown has appeared in all 144 regular season games in his career, which began with Philadelphia in 2002. His streak is the second-longest among all active defensive backs, trailing only Tampa Bay’s Ronde Barber.
  • Offensive lineman Joe Thomas has started all 64 career games at left tackle and has not missed an offensive snap since joining the Browns as the third overall pick in the 2007 draft.
