The Browns defeated the Steelers on Thursday Night Football by a score of 21-7. The entire game was going great for Cleveland until a fight broke out in the final seconds. The biggest part of the fight was when Myles Garrett ripped off Mason Rudolph’s helmet and hit him on the head with it. As of right now, Garrett has been suspended for at least the rest of the season, and Larry Ogunjobi will be suspended for just one game against the Miami Dolphins. For the Steelers, offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey is the only player that has been suspended which is a 3-game suspension. Surprisingly enough, Mason Rudolph, the quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, has yet to receive any discipline from the NFL.
Senior Matt Fantauzzo said, “The brawl may have been instigated by Rudolph, but it was foolish for Myles Garrett to continue the fight and make it worse.”
Apart from the altercation that occurred late in last night’s game, the Cleveland Browns’ offense looked much improved from the beginning of the season. The Steelers’ defense has been phenomenal with forcing turnovers lately; however, they looked lost at times against Baker Mayfield and the Browns. Kareem Hunt has continued to impress as he led the team in receptions and totaled 58 yards. Cleveland’s defense was able to take advantage of the struggling Steelers’ offense holding them to just 7 points while forcing 4 interceptions. The defensive line and blitzing linebackers continuously had pressure in Rudolph’s face. This great win by the Cleveland Browns has sadly been overshadowed by the horrible fight that occurred at the end of the game.
