Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers

For all intents and purposes, Cleveland's 14-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers wasn't that big of a deal.

It was a defensive struggle. The Browns went into the game 4-8 against the 9-3 Steelers, so dropping a game on the road by only 11 points is pretty good. That's sorta the running theme of being a Cleveland sports fan, you have to watch the Indians do well through June and finish the season clinging to second place in the worst division in baseball going "hey, this isn't so bad!" Or the alternative, "CLEVELAND HAS WASTED THE LAST 20 YEARS OF MY LIFE, GO CLEVELAND."

Because I'm not a Lead Football Analyst I can't provide any insights you wouldn't catch watching guys talk over a game, but what I can do is show you ten photos from the game and cut to the heart of the situation, bypassing photo service captions like "#18 makes a tackle on December 8, 2011" with easier to handle captions like "look at this football team suck a f**king dick, you guys".

So, enjoy that.

If you turn the picture sideways it looks like the Browns are trying to help each other over a wall.
