The Cleveland Browns kicked off Week 3 of the NFL by highlighting the offensive problems of the Pittsburgh Steelers and taking the AFC North lead by storm with a 29-17 win in the traditional Thursday Night Football game held at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The stellar play of the game was in favor of the Steelers, thanks to a one-handed reception by rookie George Pickens that can generate a lot of excitement in the future for Pittsburgh fans, however, it was almost the only bright spot in the night of a very little explosive offense under the command of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky who, little by little, begins to generate the demands that his place be taken by Kenny Pickett.
Jacoby Brissett’s best game so far this season
On the other side was quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who is taking the place of Deshaun Watson, who has already served three of his 11-game suspension by the NFL due to sexual misconduct that, at the time, generated dozens of lawsuits from women who gave him massages during his time with the Houston Texans.
At this rate, it is not out of the question that when Watson takes Brissett’s place, he will do so as divisional leader, however, today Cleveland’s strength is its ground attack, as in the game they totaled 171 yards and a touchdown by that route, of which Nick Chubb was the star with 23 carries for 111 yards with the aforementioned touchdown.
Amari Cooper makes the Cowboys regret it
Another player who stood out for the Browns, was receiver Amari Cooper, who showed the mistake that the Dallas Cowboys have made by changing to Cleveland in this season break, in this game he accumulated seven receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown.
The Browns (2-1) will return to the gridiron next Sunday, October 2 to visit the Atlanta Falcons, while the Steelers (1-2) will have their next game on the same day to host the New York Jets.
