Browns vs. Steelers: Final Report Card, Player Grades for Cleveland

The Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) fell to the Cleveland Browns (3-8) by a 20-14 margin in their Week 12 matchup at Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland.

Cleveland forced eight total turnovers and gave up just one of their own to improve their season turnover ratio to plus-seven.

Lawrence Timmons got the Steelers on the board first, picking off a deflected Brandon Weeden pass and returning it 53 yards to begin the scoring.

After a Cleveland punt, Steelers' running back Rashard Mendenhall fumbled on their first play from scrimmage and the Browns turned it into Phil Dawson's 20th-straight field goal of the season.

Jordan Cameron caught a touchdown toss from Weeden on a third-down play from the Steelers' 5-yard line and Phil Dawson added another field goal to put the team up six points.

Chris Rainey hit a wall of Cleveland Browns defenders on the goal line and then bounced it outside and walked into the end zone to give the Steelers a halftime lead.

Sheldon Brown picked off a Charlie Batch out-route throw to Plaxico Burress and then Trent Richardson took a hand-off 15 yards to give the Browns the lead.

Pittsburgh tried one last-ditch lateral play from its own 20-yard line but the Browns stopped it to escape with the win over their arch rivals.
