Last-Second Field Goal Helps Lead Browns Past Steelers


Nov 20, 2023

The story this week has been about quarterback injuries impacting the dynamic of the game. Joe Burrow, the star quarterback, made headlines when, after our show on Friday, it was revealed he would require surgery, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. The loss of Burrow is a significant blow to his team’s aspirations.

In Cleveland, the focus wasn’t on Deshaun Watson or P.J. Walker but rather on Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Despite a shaky start, Robinson spearheaded a 46-yard game-winning drive in the dying moments of the match, securing a narrow 13-10 victory for the Cleveland Browns over the Pittsburgh Steelers. This win, marking the fourth time this year the Browns clinched a game with a field goal in the final 10 seconds, was a testament to their resilience.

The Browns, covering as a slight 1.5-point favorite, showcased their reluctance to play for overtime, instead placing their trust in their young quarterback, who delivered a much-needed victory. Both teams now appear as potential playoff contenders, especially if they can maintain their winning momentum.

Conversely, the Cleveland Browns stand at a promising seven wins and three losses, but doubts linger about their offensive capabilities. If they manage to sneak into the playoffs, their offensive struggles might become their undoing, especially against more competent teams.

The Browns’ defense, though formidable in the game against the Steelers, might not hold up against stronger offenses. There’s a looming question of whether they should revert to P.J. Walker to rejuvenate their offense.

As for the Pittsburgh Steelers, their performance raises questions about their overall effectiveness this season. Despite both teams having a 6-3 record before yesterday’s game, their paths moving forward remain uncertain, with much depending on their ability to address their offensive and defensive challenges.
