Steelers stumble as Browns roll to 20-14 victory

Associated Press

CLEVELAND

Chris Rainey’s fumble with 2:25 left — Pittsburgh’s seventh turnover — was recovered by Cleveland’s Phil Taylor and the Browns handed their hated rivals a potentially devastating loss, 20-14 over the stumbling Steelers on Sunday.

Charlie Batch, forced to start at quarterback for Pittsburgh because of injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, was picked off three times and the Steelers (6-5) lost five fumbles, the last on the final play of the game to help the Browns (3-8) beat Pittsburgh for just the second time in 18 games.

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a head injury in the final minutes. Backup Colt McCoy finished the win.

Cleveland rookie Trent Richardson rushed for 85 yards, scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a 15-yarder in the third.

Batch finished 20 of 34 for 199 yards.

The Steelers were once again out coached by another team. Coach Tomlim says you can't use injuries as an excuse. So this loss and last weeks loss, both fall on the coach. As someone wrote in a Pgh area paper Tomlim can manage people, just not football games.

I wouldn't be bragging that much, 20 points on 8 turnovers! They should have blown us out.

The Super Bowlless CHOKEland Clowns have won NOTHING. Close your eyes and tell me what you see!

"GET 'em Next Year!"

All the Clowns did today was drop in the draft, not that they can draft anyhow.

Funny isn't it how sensitive Steelers fans get when their team loses to the Browns.

We Browns fans know we have a bad team, but things are looking up. Their losses have been close. Steelers fans are angry because they know their team is going in the opposite direction. Time is catching up with them and they just lost to the Browns.

By Steelers' fans opinions, It was ok for Browns fans to suffer under their teams losses and Steeler fans would even feel it was ok to rub it in and ridicule. But now, with the shoe on the other foot, the Steelers fans are angry, vindicative and sore losers. Just as expected.

""Steelers fans are angry because they know their team is going in the opposite direction."

No, not angry, and going in the opposite direction? Hardly. Kind of hard to put together a season with our overwhelming injuries this year. Pretty bad when were starting our 3 and 4th stringers against teams with maybe 1 or 2 players out. For what we been thur injury wise, I feel were handling it the best we can with the circumstances.

Injuries (and as you can see, these are our starters, pro bowlers, MVP's, etc....

Troy Polamalu, Ryan Clark, James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley, Emmanuel Sanders, Maurkice Pouncey, Ryan Clark, Antonio Brown, Rashard Mendenhall, Heath Miller, Brett Keisel, Isaac Redman, Chris Carter, Bryon Leftwich, Mike Wallace, Stevenson Sylvester, Ben Roethlisberger, David Decastro and not to mention our kicker, Shaun Suisham has ankle problems all season.

These are names everyone knows! Not no backups or such, NFL STARTERS!! Love to see what happens if a team lost all there starters how far they get.......
