The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns have made a yearly Week 17 matchup a regular occurrence in past years, and they did so again at Heinz Field to finish up the 2017 regular season. The two teams couldn’t be going in different directions with the Steelers already clinched a first round bye, and the Browns one loss away from only the second 0-16 season in NFL history.
While resting the majority of their star players, Pittsburgh lost the opening coin toss and the Browns chose to defer to the second half, giving Landry Jones and company the first possession. The offense picked up where it left off in Week 16 as they marched down the field and scored the first touchdown of the game on a Darrius Heyward-Bey reverse.
