The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to the Cleveland Browns 48-37. The Wild Card rivalry was played in Pittsburgh on a cold Sunday night, and the horrendous start by Pittsburgh is the reason why they are out of the playoffs.

The Steelers did not come ready to play at all in the first quarter. The first play of the game was a bad snap from center Mike Pouncey and led to a Cleveland fumble recovery touchdown.

Roethlisberger had a terrible first quarter with two interceptions, topping that with two more during the rest of the game. He came out very slow in the game.

At the end of the first quarter, it was 28-0.

The Steelers tried fighting back, but it is very hard coming back from a 28-0 lead.

Although Roethlisberger had four interceptions, he had 501 yards and went 47-68 passing. He also had four touchdowns, two for receiver Chase Claypool, one for Eric Ebron, and one for JuJu Smith-Schuster. JuJu and Diontae Johnson both had amazing games, JuJu with 13 receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown, while Johnson had 11 receptions for 117 yards.

The running game wasn’t there again against the Browns, only a total of 52 yards.

Pittsburgh’s defense didn’t look ready for these two outstanding running backs. Nick Chubb ran for 76 yards and Kareem Hunt for 48 yards and two touchdowns.

The Steelers will be thinking hard about this game until the next year comes to play. They have to fix their running game and be ready for next season.

The Cleveland Browns will head to Kansas City to play the Chiefs.
