Are the Cleveland Browns figuring some things out? They seem to be, based off the first two quarters of tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland leads 14-0 at halftime, thanks to a one-yard touchdown run by Baker Mayfield and a one-yard TD pass from Mayfield to Jarvis Landry. After struggling for virtually the entire season up to this point, Mayfield is 11-for-19 for 151 yards and a TD so far tonight.
The Browns have also intercepted Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph once and sacked him twice. Rudolph has also dealt with injuries to his two top weapons: running back James Conner and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.
Steelers said JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion), Artie Burns (knee), Ola Adeniyi (concussion) and James Conner (shoulder) all have been ruled out of tonight’s game.

ESPN has unveiled its second half prediction for the game. It favors the Browns greatly.
Cleveland has a whopping 93.4 percent win probability heading into the third quarter.
You can watch the second half of Browns-Steelers momentarily on NFL Network and FOX.
A loss would drop Pittsburgh to 5-5 on the season, while a win for Cleveland would be their second in a row and improve their record to 4-6.
