Another big problem last week was the ridiculous amount of silly mistakes by key players at key moments.
Mike Wallace fumbled away the ball on one drive, decided not to catch a ball that was within reach on another and dropped a sure catch on another.
Defenders missed tackles. Byron Leftwich alternated between throwing too far or too short to his receivers. Some of the short ones were after his arm was spent, but some came much earlier.
There was an interception that killed a promising second-half drive. The breakdowns on the offensive line that lead to sacks were costly too.
All of these things are preventable. The Browns have a good defense and a workable offense, but there's no reason they should be able to gain a foothold against the Steelers. The only way Pittsburgh should lose this game is if it beats itself.
Last week, it did just that. A repeat would be disastrous.
