Kizer led the Browns on an eight-play, 73-yard drive that culminated in the first touchdown pass of his career, a three-yarder to Corey Coleman. Kizer led the Browns on a 12-play, 68-yard drive that was enabled by Sean Davis' pass interference penalty on third down that put the ball at the Steelers 3. He finished going 20-30 with 222 yards, recording a touchdown through the air along with one on the ground. Facing off against a rookie quarterback, DeShone Kizer, the front seven will have the opportunity to show how dominant they can be.
The Browns' 2017 season got off to about as rough a start as possible.
With Pittsburgh needing a big play, Brown delivered one - as usual. Watt, who added an interception, and Anthony Chickillo, who started for the injured Bud Dupree. Although Browns linebacker Joe Schobert tipped the pass, Brown stayed focused, caught the ball, turned upfield and gained 50 yards.
Roethlisberger passed for 263 yards.
Bell's obvious early-game rust loomed large in a very un-Steeler-like performance of 43 rushing yards entering the two-minute warning.
The touchdown was the team's first touchdown in the first quarter of a season opener since 2010, which looks to be a good sign for the Browns offensively with a rookie leading the way for them under center. The Steelers only managed 290 total yards, and the Browns held Le'Veon Bell to just 32 yards on 11 carries.
According to Pro Football Talk, the players got the idea for the video after talking with former Browns great Jim Brown during the preseason.
