Three Positives and Three Negatives from Steelers' Tie Against Browns

San Francisco's Jimmy Garoppolo, who entered the game with five career interceptions, was picked off three times in the loss.

Their 17-game losing streak was over.

"I saw it just like you did", Jackson said Sunday.

The Cleveland Browns now sit 0-0-1 after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in nearly every facet of the game, yet still only managing to eek out a tie.

But the Browns, being the Browns, couldn't finish the job. "I don't think it's really settled in yet".

Coming off a 0-16 season, they became the first team not to win with a plus-5 turnover differential or better since Arizona was beaten at Atlanta in 2012. Thrust into the starting lineup while All-Pro Le'Veon Bell continues to wait to sign his one-year franchise tender, Conner ran 31 times for 135 yards and two scores and caught five passes for another 57.

Jackson stiffened when he was asked what kind of leash he intends to have on Taylor, who was acquired in March from Buffalo and will start until the Browns feel the No. 1 overall pick Mayfield is ready.

The Cleveland Browns scored two touchdowns in the fourth-quarter.

Melania Trump to op-ed writer: You are 'sabotaging' our country
Woodward goes on to say that he's "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on". He accused the media of trying to undermine the Trump administration and said he found that "incredibly disturbing".

Rafael Nadal beats Thiem, enters US Open semis
In one of many memorable points, Nadal hit a almost flawless half volley, only to see Thiem beat him with a ideal crosscourt pass. The win was sealed when Thiem missed a hard overhead smash long, and Nadal looked to the sky, equal parts overjoyed and relieved.

Bell isn't happy with Pittsburgh placing him on the franchise tag for the second consecutive season, and he has continued his holdout. The Steelers defense had seven totals sacks. We didn't get the job done.

Watson, who missed the final nine games last season with a torn right ACL, completed 17 of 35 passes for 176 yards, one score and one interception. The first rookie to pick off two passes in his National Football League debut in 25 years, both coming in the first half.

Roethlisberger passed for 335 yards, but he was upset Pittsburgh's offense couldn't put away the Browns. Unfortunately for the Browns, they weren't able to cash in on either of the picks.

They failed to win the game despite getting six takeaways by their opportunistic defense: three interceptions and three fumble recoveries.

Jackson also said Gordon's start was a "mistake". "He is showing that he was worthy of being the first player drafted a year ago". That said, the Browns are different this season, and there were some good things that happened on Sunday.

Watt already had four sacks and 11 tackles when the made the game's defining play. "It's not just because I'm the backup cornerback, or I come into a game at a certain point in time".

Absolutely. I'll never celebrate a tie, but I will accentuate the positive. The rule has read: "When tackling a passer who is in a defenseless posture (e.g., during or just after throwing a pass), a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw him down and land on top of him with all or most of the defender's weight".

Kirk Cousins completed 20 of 36 passes for 244 yards and two touchdowns in his debut with Minnesota, which held on for a win over visiting San Francisco.
