The Pittsburgh Steelers were on the losing end of their AFC North divisional game vs. the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football, and there was plenty which went wrong during the 29-17 loss.

Whether it was the play calling, defense’s inability to stop the run or playmakers just not stepping up when it mattered most, the list of what went wrong is long compared to the alternative.

When it comes to breaking down film, few do it better than the NFL Network’s Brian Baldinger. “Baldy” does it such a unique fashion. It’s him with his cell phone in one hand, and a clicker in the other, all while he provides commentary as to what he’s seeing on the film.

After the Week 3 game in prime time, Baldy had plenty to talk about. Some good, but plenty bad, for the Steelers. Let’s take a look at some of what he had to say about the game in Cleveland.
