Watt, who took ownership of the starting job over James Harrison in training camp, executed an Antonio Brown-esque celebration dance after his second sack of DeShone Kizer, swinging his arms left and right and shaking his hips. Brown caught 11 passes on 11 targets for 182 yards, although he didn't score.

Rookie 21-year-old quarterback DeShone Kizer impressed in flashes for the Browns on his first National Football League start, including rushing for a one-yard score and throwing a three-yard TD to Corey Coleman, which brought the Browns to within three of the Steelers.

Quarterback has, of course, been the biggest issue for the Browns.

That Cleveland offense that looked poorly on the first two series, drove 68 yards for a touchdown on its third.

Haden made four tackles, broke up a pass and had a QB hurry in his Steelers debut. He was signed Friday to fill in for the Raiders' all-time leading scorer and 18-year veteran Sebastian Janikowski, who's on injured reserve with a bad back. The last time the Steelers lost in a regular season game was November 13, 2016 against the Cowboys. Also updating will be a running recap of the game as the action is well underway. The Titans had to settle for two Ryan Succop field goals after driving inside the Oakland 10.

Browns fans have endured nine straight losing seasons, and in that drought the only time the Browns won more than five games was in 2014 when they were 7-9. The Texans hoped to provide a boost to the area ravaged by Hurricane Harvey with a win. As such, be sure to keep up with the score and highlights below as they'll update when the game begins. Todd Gurley had 40 yards rushing and 56 yards receiving while the Rams roared to a 37-3 lead in the third quarter. Despite the defensive struggles, Watt and the rest of the defensive front were very impressive for most of the game. Isaiah Crowell rushed for only 33 yards on 17 attempts, a 1.9 average. Before that, however, the Browns defense had forced four straight punts to start the game against Pittsburgh's offense.

Roethlisberger was 24 of 36 for 263 yards, mostly on the underneath routes that Williams was basically giving the Steelers by playing his safeties 25-30 yards off the line of scrimmage. He sneaked in from the 1 and celebrated with a high leap in the end zone. In the meantime, he's going to be a rookie, with all of the messy uncertainty that brings.

For the most part though, he was accurate and showcased his ability to through it all over the field. But he was targeted just six times and only made two receptions.

Coaches also look better when a rookie quarterback develops quickly under them.
