Ben Roethlisberger was sacked eight times as the Pittsburgh Steelers lost their fifth straight game, this time to the hapless Cleveland Browns, 13-6. In addition to horrendous offensive line play, the Steelers were plagued by wind chill that was below zero for most of the game. Browns receiver Joshua Cribbs ran the wildcat and ran back punts to the tune of 139 all-purpose yards.
“To lose five straight coming off a Super Bowl from last year is embarrassing,” wide receiver Hines Ward said. “There’s nothing fun about losing games, especially five in a row. We’re better than that. We should play better than that. With three games left, you’re going to see who really wants to go out here and play for the pride of this organization and this city and who doesn’t want to be around here.” –Y! Sports.
I’ll have a hard time typing with my foot in my mouth all day, but nobody could have seen a stunner like this. I suppose that’s why they call them stunners. Cleveland’s only other win was a 6-3 puntfest against Buffalo. Now only the Rams and Buccaneers are the only 1-win teams in the NFL. Way to ruin your draft status, Cleveland.
