Steelers vs. Browns second half open thread

The Steelers have taken physical control over the game, and are leading host Cleveland 13-3 at halftime.

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Steady, strong and dominant.

The Steelers have run the ball well, passed the ball well and have played outstanding defense. While their 13-3 lead isn't exactly reflective of one-sided play, Pittsburgh has clearly taken hold of the physical aspect of this game, and is beating Cleveland 13-3 at the end of the first half.

Pittsburgh will kick off to start the second half.

Despite being 1-for-6 on third downs, the Steelers offense is moving very well, led by an outstanding half of football from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. After two quarters, he's 16-for-23 for 171 yards and a touchdown. He hasn't been sacked or hit yet, as the Steelers' offensive line showed perhaps its best two quarters of football this season.

It's likely not a coincidence Guy Whimper is not playing in this game.
