Great hit on Randle-El and a great toss by Holcombe! Just like that, 14-zip.

No doubt that's why i hate the halo rule in College Football, why punish the kicking team
the snow can only help Clevelan , I can't see much offense in those conditions

What a way to redeem yourself, Randle-El. What a pathetic effort by the punter - use the sideline to your advantage.

The Clowns might be scoring once again.

The Steelers have no pass defense at all.

Well maybe not a touchdown. What an amazingly stupid play call that close to the endzone.

Horrible call - end around option pass from the 4 in snowy conditions when you are up by 7 on the road?

It is easy to say that the Steelers have no pass defense but look at the pinpoint throws that Holcomb is making.

Yeah, but some of those receivers have been very open. Plus I am not a Holcomb fan so I have to come up with excuses for why he is looking so good.

Taking out Zerowue, who has looked very good so far, and putting in Bettis on 3rd & short certainly backs up your statement.

Let's see if the Browns can go for the jugular.

Looking like a very nice weekend for Ohio sports fans. Haven't had many of those lately.

I certainly thought about it. Looks like the Steelers won't even find the exit signs out of Pittsburgh.

Agh I hate Gumbel and Simms.

Simms sounds like a bumbling hick.

As much as I want Cleveland to win, these helmet-to-helmet calls against the QB are getting out of hand. Leading with the helmet and having helmets collide are two different things.

This is a bad challenge - even if you win it, the Steelers still have an excellent opportunity to score a TD. Not worth risking the timeout.

I really like the way the Browns are playing. Great pass and catch from Holcombe to A. Davis.
