A week after their biggest all-time comeback, the Browns did it the easy way on Sunday, picking apart a team that they have had some of their toughest losses to over the years, the Steelers.
The Browns, after a shaky first quarter, dominated the Steelers, 31-10, doing it with big plays as well as a defense that stopped the Steelers three times inside the Browns 20.
It was special,” OT Joe Thomas said. “I’ve been on the other end of this rivalry when we lose by three scores so many times.
“I’ve been through the hell of getting our butts kicked. It felt really good to finally be on the other end of it. It was a family win.”
Brian Hoyer threw for 217 yards, even through he hit on only 8 passes. Jordan Cameron went over 100 yards receiving, including a 51-yard touchdown.
Not everything went great for the Browns, as with already a banged up group, the team lost Pro Bowl center Alex Mack with a broken leg, and what appears to be a season-ending injury to DE Armonty Bryant.
In the end though, the team will take the win, and now at 3-2, will move on to play the winless Jaguars Sunday in Florida.
The next three teams the Browns play are a combined 1-13.
