Browns vs. Steelers:  What We Learned from Cleveland's 14-3 Loss

The seemingly never-ending era of heartbreak continued in Cleveland on Thursday night, as the Browns suffered yet another crushing loss to their rival the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 14-3. 

The Browns offense remained missing in action for the whole game, but the defense kept them in it well into the fourth quarter before faltering at the end. 

It was another game chock full of missed opportunities and foolish decisions by the Browns, who were within striking distance of taking the lead on several occasions, yet missed the mark on all of them. 

It wasn't a horrible game for the Browns score-wise, but it sure felt awful for those of us watching, and I imagine felt even worse for the Cleveland players. 

Between Ben Roethlisberger's stunning one-legged effectiveness and James Harrison's appalling cheap shot on Colt McCoy, it was an utterly deflating night for the Browns' tortured fanbase, which had already suffered enough this season. 

Still, you have to admire the toughness the Browns showed on short rest against their bitter rival this week, even if the end result was heartbreaking. 

Following are four things we learned about the Browns this week.
