PITTSBURGH (WJW)--  The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns, 20-13, on Sunday. The Browns, who were looking to complete the sweep, have not won in Pittsburgh since 2003.

The opening drive for the Browns was full of highlights, despite it ending with just a field goal. People will be talking about tight end Steve Carlson's stiff arm all week. Then a brilliant catch by Jarvis Landry and smart challenge from Freddie Kitchens put the ball on Pittsburgh's 26.

The Browns dominated time of possession in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Cleveland capped off a 10-play, 70-yard drive with a touchdown from Kareem Hunt. The Steelers scored on back-to-back possessions with a field goal and a James Washington touchdown. That tied it up at 10 at the half.

Pittsburgh had possession to start the second half and drove 69 yards for another touchdown. Then the Steelers sacked Mayfield and forced a fumble. The Browns defense held the Steelers to a field goal.

The Steelers scored 20 unanswered points before the Browns managed a field goal in the fourth quarter. That made the score 20-13.

Terrance Mitchell came up with a crucial interception, but Cleveland couldn't put points on the board and were forced to punt.

Former Browns Joe Haden sealed the game for Pittsburgh with an interception with just over a minute left in the game.
