Steelers activate Le'Veon Bell

He played in the opener against the Bengals, though, and did just enough to guide his team to a 20-0 win over the Bengals, completing 9 of 17 passes for 121 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

The Steelers defense did get pressure on rookie quarterback Deshone Kizer when needed. But Roethlisberger threw up a prayer of a pass that Brown came down with 38 yards downfield, between three Cleveland defenders, to allow the Steelers to run out the clock.

LOS ANGELES - Jared Goff passed for a career-high 306 yards and a touchdown in his first victory as an NFL starter, and the Rams routed the Colts in Sean McVay's impressive debut as the youngest head coach in modern league history.

Browns fans couldn't have been more disgusted with the beginning of the 2017 Cleveland Browns season, and that's saying something superlative.

Cleveland fans have been waiting for the expansion Browns to get themselves together for almost a generation now.

The Steelers were able to do just enough to run out the clock, including an incredible catch by an fantastic player, Antonio Brown.

Pittsburgh linebacker Anthony Chickillo then recovered the ball in the end zone, putting the Browns in their first hole of the season.

CHICAGO - Matt Ryan threw an 88-yard touchdown to Austin Hooper and led two fourth-quarter scoring drives as the NFC champions held on.

Released recently by Cleveland, Haden faced the team he played with for seven seasons. Brown also drew a 41-yard defensive pass interference that help set up the Steelers' final score of the game.

Defensive end Myles Garrett missed the game due to an injury. Brown, who caught two long bombs for 88 yards, did most of his damage on quick outs, slants, and drags. I have all the trust in the world in him, he has it in me.

"I was just having some fun, just trying to bring some energy", said Watt, who also had two sacks in his preseason debut.

Last season, no white players were among those by participating in anthem protests, but several did so before games last month.

The Browns had crept to within 21-18 and the Steelers faced a second-and-12 from their 18 with 2:47 left in regulation.

It's likely the combination of Gregg Williams and an influx of talent, but the Cleveland Browns' defense is much improved so far.

"I'll probably remember missing that first sack that I should have had over any of those plays", Watt said.
