And, as previously explained, the Steelers (or a new team) could offer Bell more than the base rate of $14.54 million under the franchise tag. He will make the plays that are there but throw it away when they aren't. "This is a new year, this a new opportunity for this organization and football team, myself included".

"We have been practicing fade balls all week, the offseason and training camp", Gordon said.

After that initial play Gordon sat out the rest of the series and the ensuing one before returning to play the rest of the game - he played 69 snaps, or 78 percent of the team's offensive plays.

Jackson also said Gordon's start was a "mistake". But the Browns punt from their own 26 after Bud Dupree batted a pass intended for Jarvis Landry.

Browns undrafted rookie left tackle Desmond Harrison had a long day. Got to play better. "Anything less is not good enough".

The last time a Browns game ended in a tie was November 19, 1989 against Kansas City, a 10-10 final.

Opinions as to whether to love or hate the Browns' 21-all battle with the Steelers vary, but there are some irrefutable applications about a tie.

For example, if somehow the Browns and Steelers both finish 9-6-1 and the next-best record in the AFC North is 9-7, Cleveland and Pittsburgh would be in a tiebreaker to determine the division champ. Pittsburgh losing doesn't help quiet the debate that the offense needs its playmaking running back to win games.

Cousins connected with Stefon Diggs in the second quarter and Kyle Rudolph in the third quarter for scores, and the defense finished the job with three sacks and three second-half interceptions of Garoppolo.

The Cleveland Browns scored two touchdowns in the fourth-quarter.

To be fair, the last time the Steelers played to a tie, Tommy Maddox threw for 473 yards, Plaxico Burress had 253 yards receiving and Amos Zereoue (!) ran for another 123 yards in a 34-34 finish against Michael Vick and the Falcons on November 10, 2002.

James Conner was the lone bright spot, rushing for 135 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but his success is against the backdrop of Le'Veon Bell's absence.
