Steelers Survive Week One Against Cleveland 21-18

Ken Blaze-USA Today Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t play good by any means but they were able to pull out a 21-18 win against the Cleveland Browns in week one. 

Pittsburgh started the game with a bang as they blocked Cleveland’s first punt of the game and got a touchdown out of it: 

Tyler Matakevich was the player who blocked the punt for the Steelers.

The Browns were able to tie the game as DeShone Kizer answered back and got his first NFL touchdown as he had a QB sneak to make it 7-7. 

Jesse James caught a pair of touchdowns for the Steelers today and that proved to be enough for the Steelers in the end. 

DeShone Kizer had a decent debut but he’ll have to work through the growing pains as he was sacked seven times by the Steelers defense and was picked off by TJ Watt.  Kizer finished 20-30 for 222 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

Antonio Brown was basically the Steelers entire offense as he had 11 receptions for 182 yards.

Pittsburgh will have their home opener next week against the Minnesota Vikings while Cleveland will travel to Baltimore to face the Ravens.
