Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (Week 12)
November 24, 2012
I've seriously thought the Browns should win nearly every week, yet they pull defeat from the jaws of victory with unmatched skill. I don't care if Bubby Brister suits up for the Steelers, the Browns, and Pat Shurmur, are cooked.
Year after year the Steelers roll into Cleveland, and hand the Browns another loss. Today is no different. At least the horrible idea of giving away white flags to wave has been scrapped.
The Browns are a coach away from being competitive in the AFC North and in the league in general. There may finally be a light at the end of this long tunnel of despair, but this team is not reaching it this year.

While the Steelers offense certainly will miss Roethlisberger, the Steelers defense as well as a solid run game and a “good enough” passing game should propel them to victory.

According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could be ready to go for next week’s match up against the Ravens.
Some in the organization thought that while the rib injury was a serious immediate threat, it wasn’t the long-term issue some were making it out to be. This isn’t to say the rib injury is totally healed, but...
@AnthonyLimaFAN Prior to Sunday’s Browns – Steelers game, Cleveland Browns fans lit a Ben Roethlisberger dummy on fire. Poor Big Ben twitter.com/AnthonyLimaFAN… — Anthony Lima (@AnthonyLimaFAN) November 25, 2012 The good news for the Browns today was that Roethlisberger didn’t play on Sunday and Charlie Batch made the start and threw a load of interceptions that led to...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to rebound from a very tough loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens in week 11. Turnovers and a big punt return touchdown cost the Steelers a game they had a very good chance at winning. When it was all said and done the Ravens had squeaked out a 13-10 win and had taken a two game lead on the Steelers in the AFC North division. In week 12 the...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have one less wide receiver on their practice squad right now as the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Toney Clemons to their 53 man roster today.
Clemons was drafted by the Steelers as their first of four seventh-round picks (231st overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Colorado.
The rookie registered just one catch for 14 yards during the preseason for the...
So how do you feel about the Browns beating the Steelers? It certainly feels better than the alternative. The Browns defense was dominant against a non-quarterback in Charlie Batch, but they also crushed the entire corps of Steeler running backs. Four fumbles lost and five if you count the one that happened on the last “razzle dazzle” attempt by the Steelers. In all the Browns...
It is hard to tell which defense is going to show up for the Cleveland Browns, today the defense that can dominate on the field showed up. The Cleveland defense forced the Pittsburgh Steelers to fumble the football 10 times losing it 8 times. The Browns defense played a great game against the Steelers today to close out what I am calling rivalry weekend with another win in the Buckeye...
Below are the initial week 12 offensive and defensive snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns Sunday.
Thanks to his two fumbles in the game Rashard Mendenhall only played 8 snaps in total, so basically you can say that he was benched. Isaac Redman saw only 5 snaps in the game and the same goes for him. Head coach Mike Tomlin obviously wanted...
Almost one year ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers knocked the Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy out of action. Today the Steelers knocked the Browns 29-year-old rookie Brandon Weeden out of action forcing head coach Pat Shurmur to play his back up Colt McCoy. I wonder what went Shurmur’s mind? He certainly wasn’t going to let McCoy throw a pass in the game. He would rather...
Even when they win the Cleveland Browns can not escape bad news. Defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers for just the second time in eighteen games the Browns moved to 3-8 on the season. The bad news for the Browns is that quarterback Brandon Weeden suffered a concussion.
Weeden was flung to the ground and hit his head on the knee of his own left tackle, Joe Thomas. After a walk to the...
Browns president Mike Holmgren stopped down to the media room for an informal press conference today to say goodbye and announce that Friday will be his last day on the job, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
"I was done," he said. "I had already passed the baton."
He said his on-the-field chat with Jerry Jones last week in Dallas did not...
Despite the serious nature of Ben Roethlisberger's injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers may get their quarterback back in time for next weekend's re-match against the Baltimore Ravens. Some outlets, like CBS Sports, had predicted Roethlisberger's quick return. Now it seems close to being confirmed.
According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Big Ben will start throwing (soft...
Below are the offensive player play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Wide receiver David Gilreath saw 3 snaps in this game. The first came on the end around run by him on the second offensive snap of the game and the last two came on the final two plays after Jerricho Cotchery suffered his rib injury...
It appears that someone finally notified the Cleveland Browns what “waving the white flag” signifies.
The Browns organization cancelled a giveaway that was supposed to take place on Sunday sponsored by Ticketmaster that would hand out white flags to every fan entering Cleveland Browns Stadium. The Browns announced the promotion on Wednesday via their Facebook page, and it was...
