NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

1st Quarter In-Game Update

Throughout the early portions of the second quarter, the Browns were the team who truly dictated the play; however, neither team could string together any semblance of a scoring drive.

That was, until Antonio Brown decided to get going. As Pittsburgh started inside their own 10-yard line, it was Brown who not only got the offense out of their own red-zone, but also into Cleveland territory after a tremendous catch which was tipped by a Cleveland defender.

What followed was the first Pittsburgh Steelers offensive touchdown of the 2017 regular season. After Brown got the offense inside the 10-yard line, Ben Roethlisberger hit Jesse James with a bullet pass to give the Steelers a 14-7 lead heading into halftime.
