After DeShone Kizer's disastrous opening series and a blocked punt recovered for a touchdown the Browns rallied to pull within 3 late in the fourth quarter but it wasn't enough.

Ben Roethlisberger looks to pass against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on September 10, 2017, in Cleveland, Ohio.

Kizer scored his first rushing touchdown of his career with 24 seconds left in the first quarter. The rookie has looked calm in his first regular season action, which is telling considering the big stage he's under at home against a big AFC North rival in the Steelers. He finished 20 of 30 for 222 yards, but was guilty of holding onto the ball too long and put himself at risk with a few runs.

The Steelers had 62 yards of offense until the scoring drive that started at the Steelers 9.

Hurricane Irma is literally sucking the water away from shorelines
Cuba was hit on Saturday with winds of up to 160mph, the first time the island had suffered such a strong hurricane since 1924. Luckily for the locals, the water did not come gushing in all at once, with Adrian later tweeting that the sea " came back ".

The Steelers made life miserable for the Browns quarterback - this time Kizer. First-round pick T.J. Watt is the starter at right outside linebacker.

In the moments preceding the Week 2 preseason game between the Giants and Browns, a dozen Cleveland players took a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

This was all done without Myles Garrett, which should give fans some hope that this defense can be great considering the Steelers are one of the better teams the Browns will face all season. He just missed picking off a pass in the second quarter. Cleveland T Joe Thomas, who has never missed a snap with the Browns, started his 161st straight game on Sunday.
