It was a memorable Sunday for the Cleveland Browns, but it may be one QB Brandon Weeden has a tough time recalling, as the rookie QB sustained a concussion late in Sunday’s win over the Steelers. Rookie RB Trent Richardson rushed 29 times for 85 yards with a touchdown and added four catches for 27 yards as the Browns offense was able to score 20 points off 8 Steelers turnovers en route to their 20-14 victory.

 

On the other side, it was an epic collapse for the Steelers, QB Charlie Batch, who was forced to start because of rib injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, threw three INTs and Pitt lost five fumbles as they fell to the Browns and likely lost any hope of winning the AFC north at 6-5 with the Ravens sitting at 9-2 with five games remaining. This was only the Steelers second loss in 17 games vs rookie starting QBs since Dick LeBeau became defensive coordinator in 2004.
