Steelers Vs. Browns Score Update: Cleveland Takes An Early Three-Point Lead

The Cleveland Browns won the coin toss for only the second time this season, and promptly elected to take the kick off. Cleveland quickly moved down the field behind Colt McCoy and appeared to score an opening-drive touchdown. Colt McCoy scrambled up the middle and lunged for the goal line. It was initially ruled a touchdown but on review, the call was overturned as reply showed McCoy's elbow hitting the ground before the ball broke the plane.

With the touchdown coming off the board and third and goal from the one, the Steelers defense rose up and stuffed Peyton Hillis short of the end zone. James Harrison drove Browns tight end Alex Smith into the backfield, and James Farrior stepped through the hole to make the tackle. Cleveland would have to settle for a Phil Dawson field goal and a 3-0 lead.
