Takeaways from the Steelers 21-18 win over the Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns Live Stream: TV, Team News The First Touchdown Of NFL Kickoff Sunday Was A Blocked Punt Against The Browns

After rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer and company failed to get anything going on their opening drive, Cleveland was forced to punt.

On second and goal from the Pittsburgh one-yard line, Kizer took the snap, ran around left tackle and muscled his way into the end zone for his first career touchdown.

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

The Browns cut Haden back on August 30, only to see him sign with the AFC North division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers nearly immediately.

Of the 75 yards the Steelers gained on their six plays from scrimmage on the drive, 41 came on a pass interference penalty against Browns cornerback Jamar Taylor on a throw intended for Brown.

While the attention on the defensive side of the ball will surely be the presence of long-time Cleveland Brown Joe Haden in black and gold and former Steeler Sammie Coates lining up for Cleveland, a much larger story will be how the front seven of the Steelers can perform.

The Steelers expanded their advantage to 21-10 on the following possession when Roethlisberger hooked up with James for a 2-yard pass out of an empty backfield.

The Steelers made life miserable for the Browns quarterback - this time Kizer.

The players also asked owner Jimmy Haslam and his wife Dee to join them on the field during the anthem, writes Florio, who adds that "The video flows directly from the message given to players by Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown" after the Giants preseason game.

After the players protested before the Giants game, team leader Christian Kirksey told reporters, "We did it out of respect". QB Kevin Hogan, with zero National Football League starts, backed up rookie DeShone Kizer.
