Le'Veon Bell posts emoji after watching Steelers tie

Down 21-7 in the fourth quarter, the Browns were on the verge of their 18th straight loss.

Antonio Brown caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger in the third-quarter for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers did not have running back Le'Veon Bell because of a hold out and the Browns have not won a game since Week 16 of the 2016 season at home against the San Diego Chargers. Conner had 31 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns. Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Brandon Marshall, and Seahawks linemen Duane Brown and Quinton Jefferson, retreated to their respective tunnels while the anthem played.

One of the knocks on Taylor in Buffalo was that he often missed throws he should have completed, and that he was afraid to attempt passes over the middle.

Sutton played two snaps in the Steelers' dollar package in which seven defensive backs are deployed until Haden was injured on special teams. The Browns were at the Steelers 43 when Taylor heaved a deep pass for Gordon. Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, including a 75-yarder to Randall Cobb with 2:13 left in the game.

It was the league's first Week 1 tie since 1971, and the first time in 133 games the Browns and Steelers couldn't settle their rivalry on the field.

Player holdouts are nothing new, of course, but what makes Bell's case different is that his teammates appeared genuinely shocked that he didn't return to Pittsburgh last week.

Tropical Storm Florence A "Potential Threat"
After passing the Cabo Verde Islands the system was not expected to pose a direct threat to land for at least several days. Forecasters expect the storm to bring tropical storm conditions to parts of the Cabo Verde Islands on Saturday night.

The Browns defense, as dominant as it had been all preseason, got six takeaways: three interceptions and three fumble recoveries, including one off a strip-sack by Myles Garrett.

In Arizona, the Redskins used a 21-point second quarter to seize control of a game that they would end up winning, 24-6.

Watt already had four sacks and 11 tackles when the made the game's defining play.

Browns: DE Emmanuel Ogbah left briefly with an ankle injury in the first quarter but returned.

Garoppolo finished 15 for 33 for 261 yards and a touchdown pass to rookie Dante Pettis.

Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry and the biggest offseason Browns signing in at least a decade, has gone on record as being someone who isn't down for the B.S. with this HBO Hard Knocks rousing speech.
