In a game that could have gone down as one of the most memorable in Browns history, the team couldn’t stop Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in the final minute, and Shaun Suisham’s field goal on the last play gave the Steelers a 30-27 win.
Roethlisberger fired a 20-yard slant to Markus Wheaton down to the Browns 24 yard-line, and Suisham broke the Browns hearts with a 41-yard field goal.
The Browns defense couldn’t stop Roethlisberger, as he went for 278 yards on 16 of 22 passing, the highest first-half passing yardage of his career.
It was 27-3 at the half, with the Steelers doing whatever they wanted to the Browns, but in the second half, it was another story.
Brian Hoyer led the Browns all the way back, with the team scoring 24 second half points, using running backs Terrance West to go over 100 yards and Isaiah Crowell going in for two scores during the comeback.
The Browns lost Ben Tate to a knee injury, and Jordan Cameron to a shoulder injury, but it didn’t stop the comeback, which was impressive.
Hoyer was 12 of 14 for 172 yards with a touchdown in the second half after going 4 of 11 for 47 yards in the first half.
It was a loss, but it was a gutsy comeback and could end with more positives than negatives.
