PITTSBURGH, PA —
It was over when...
With the Cleveland Browns winning the overtime call, and choosing to recieve, Tim Tebow hit Lorenzo Brooker on a 33 yard reception to set up the game winning field goal.
Rookie Tim Tebow completed 19 of 30 passes for 310 yards and 4 touchdowns with no interceptions.
When Isaac Redman plowed in for the touchdown early in the 4th quarter leading Pittsburgh to a 34-14 lead, moments later due to interceptions and bad coverage they found themselves fighting for the second place in the AFC North.
Tim Tebow hit the reciever at the back of the endzone sending the game into overtime, things got worse as he got even more clutch and delivered the Browns their first win of the season. Now Pittsburgh who are 3-2 face at home the Bengals 3-1 for the second place in the AFC North next week.
The Steelers have now lost three straight to the Cleveland Browns, something that has not been done for quite some time.
Next week against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Steelers have the #1 ranked offense whilst the Bengals have the #31 ranked rush offense but boast the #4 total defence #1 ranked rush defence.
Tim Tebow could well be the savior to the Cleveland Browns.
The Steelers released Chase Daniel who threw two interceptions, they signed Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a $1.64M deal who will start against his former team as Dennis Dixon is out with a injury.
The Steelers will renew Ike Taylor's contract ending the dispute, the Front Office are hoping he is the success to ending the big yardage situations.
