Steelers Fan Wiz Khalifa Sounds off on Le'Veon Bell Holdout

Steelers Fan Wiz Khalifa Sounds off on Le'Veon Bell Holdout

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden suffered a mild (Grade 1) hamstring pull against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, according to a source. I credit T.J. for getting that block, but the outcome was already decided.

In his debut with Cleveland, Tyrod Taylor completed 15 of 40 passes for 197 yards.

The Steelers, who blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, also wasted their chance to escape with a win when Chris Boswell was wide left on a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 1:44 remaining in the extra period.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett seemed to be everywhere.

Both the interception - and the touchdown - came later in the game when Taylor and the Browns started to open things up. "I feel like anybody out there on the field should expect the ball to come to them every play because you want to make plays". He forced two fumbles, recorded two sacks and rushed Roethlisberger into making some indecisive throws.

"Cam has a real good skill set, and I'm glad he was able to show it as a rookie", Davis said.

It was another positive for Gordon, who missed most of training camp to address health issues and was playing in his first season opener since 2012 because of drug and alcohol addictions. They believe they'll get better. Jarvis Landry was the Cleveland Browns leading receiver with seven catches for 106 yards receiving.

"Disappointed for our fans", said an exasperated Jackson, who fell to 1-31-1 with Cleveland.

Browns undrafted rookie left tackle Desmond Harrison had a long day.

Pittsburgh committed six turnovers, including a strip-sack fumble of Roethlisberger late in OT that had the Browns poised to win their first opener since 2004.

Prior to Sunday's game, the Browns had lost 13 straight week one games. The Browns and the Steelers tied at 21. Cleveland seems to be heading in the right direction, and if there's any indication of Sunday's game versus Pittsburgh, it's that they now have some playmakers on defense.

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

Tyrod Taylor is one of the most mobile quarterbacks in the National Football League, and he showed off his athleticism in a big way Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

James Conner was the lone bright spot, rushing for 135 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but his success is against the backdrop of Le'Veon Bell's absence.

Brown finished with nine receptions for 93 yards receiving and a touchdown.
