DeShone Kizer throws first career TD pass in 4th quarter vs. Steelers

NOTES: CB Joe Haden, who was cut by the Browns on August 30, started for the Steelers.

The Cleveland Browns have come up with an original and effective way to get their concerns about social injustice and racial inequality across. The blocked punt stands out as the worst play, but a key drop from Kenny Britt and some immaculate receptions made by Antonio Brown stand out as game-changing. Cleveland T Joe Thomas, who has never missed a snap with the Browns, started his 161st straight game on Sunday. Jackson challenged the call, but it held up after a video review and the Steelers improved to 32-6 against the Browns since 1999. He rejoined his teammates last week and signed his $12.1 million franchise tag, far less than he feels he deserves. Two of the sacks were by rookie T.J. Watt, the younger brother of Houston star J.J. Watt, who also had an interception in a memorable debut.

On fourth-and-two from the Steelers' three-yard line, Kizer took a shotgun snap after a shift overloaded the right side of the defense with four receivers, and then, fired a slant pass to wide receiver Corey Coleman on the left side of the formation for the touchdown.

Kizer had some nice moments, and a few where his inexperience showed.

And he finished it off by himself with a one-yard touchdown run. He is the third member of the Watt family to play in the NFL. A win is a win and the Steelers will take it and hope to learn from the mistakes. He just missed picking off a pass in the second quarter. A few plays later, Roethlisberger threaded his TD pass to James.
