Pittsburgh Steelers 17-29 Cleveland Browns: Jacoby Brissett throws two touchdown passes as Browns beat Steelers after Jets upset

Amari Cooper plays for the Cleveland Browns in her second straight 100-yard rushing game in their win over the Pittsburgh Steelers; Watch the NFL live on Sky Sports Sunday at 6pm Week 3 kicks off with a triple headline with Bills @ Dolphins followed by Packers @ Buccaneers and 49ers @ Broncos.

Jacoby Brisset threw for two touchdowns, Nick Chubb scored a goal and the Cleveland Browns bounced back from an embarrassing loss four days earlier to beat the rival Pittsburgh Steelers 29-17 on Thursday night.

Pittsburgh (1-2) made it 23-17 when Chris Boswell made a 34-yard field goal with 1:48 left before hitting an onside kick. But unlike Sunday’s 31-30 loss, when the New York Jets closed a 13-point Finals deficit 1:55 on a rebound, the Browns kicked the ball out of bounds.

Cleveland fans finally got a breath when cornerback Denzel Ward fell from a fumble in the Steelers’ end zone on a meaningless touchdown on the final play.

Brisset connected with Amari Cooper and David Njoku for touchdowns and went 21-for-31 for 220 yards. The 29-year-old played his second straight game as a substitute while Deshawn Watson is serving an 11-game suspension.

Chubb finished with 113 yards and pushed across the goal line for the fourth goal with 9:29 remaining to give the Browns a 23-14 lead.

George Pickens of the Pittsburgh Steelers produced a potential catch of the year candidate with this incredible one-handed grab.  But is it better than Odell Beckham's catch against the Dallas Cowboys in 2014?

Mitch Trubisky and the Steelers’ stagnant offense showed signs of life in the first half, but they bogged down on their first three possessions after the break, gaining just 54 yards. Trubisky, who was criticized for not shooting deep the first two weeks, threw several long passes but almost missed.

A 34-yard goal by rookie Cade Yorke gave the Browns a 16-14 lead in the third quarter as Cleveland lost four players, including starting linebackers Anthony Walker Jr. and Jeremy Owusu-Koramoa, to injuries.

Brisset’s seven-yard pass to Njoku gave the Browns a 13–7 lead with 8:58 to go, but York missed an extra point for the second week in a row.

Trubisky led the Steelers on a 75-yard touchdown shot (51 rushing yards) before the quarterback rolled to the right and shot from the 1-yard line. Boswell’s PAT gave Pittsburgh a 14-13 lead.
