Browns vs. Steelers second half open thread

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a career-high 278 passing yards in the first half as the Steelers are throttling the Browns at the half 27-3.

The Steelers had 364 yards of offense in the first half against Cleveland in Week 1. They averaged 337 yards a game last season.

It's probably even better than that. With quarterback Ben Roethlisberger playing a perfect game outside an interception (he was unstoppable after it), and Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Le'Veon Bell all flashing big-play ability, it seems as if this offense has been hiding under the flash-judgement of national pundits and media members. They lead the Browns 27-3 at halftime.

However the Steelers play the final two quarters, that was, perhaps, the most savage beating a Steelers team has ever put on an opponent in a half. The Steelers punted once and had five drives of 50 yards and longer, scoring three touchdowns and two field goals.

We'll be here immediately after the game with a (likely very exciting) game recap, Winners and Losers and a bunch of other features, so don't go too far, this one's gonna be pretty fun.
