Week 6 . . . Steelers @ Browns

Run the ball and stop the run. That’s been a winning formula in the NFL since the league was founded and that is exactly what the Browns did. Cleveland running backs combined on 38 carries for 158 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. Quarterback Brian Hoyer attempted 17 passes connecting on only 8 of them but those 8 completions went for 217 yards and 1 touchdown. Cleveland spotted the Steelers a 3 point lead in the 1st quarter and then went on to register 31 unanswered points. The Steelers finally got into the end zone with a TD pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Lance Moore with only 2:45 left in the game.

The game was literally over by half time and the Dawg Pound ate it up. But, the dominant win came at a severe cost. Center Alex Mack suffered a broken leg and DE Armonty Bryant suffered a knee injury during the game and both would be lost for the season. Alex Mack injured

The effect of losing Mack would become apparent in the coming weeks and the loss of Bryant depleted an already thin group of defensive linemen.

I am a transplanted Connecticut Yankee. My family moved to Northern Ohio in the very early 1950's and plopped me right smack dab in the middle of the Otto Graham, Dante Lavelli, Marion Motley era Cleveland Browns and I have been a fan ever since. I'm also an avid history buff so the combination of the NFL and history seems to be a perfect match for me. I hope that I will be successful in sharing some of my research on the history of the NFL and hope you learn something new while reading my articles.
