PITTSBURGH >> The worst season in franchise history won’t cost Browns coach Hue Jackson his job. - From News-Herald.com
I think we have the right people in place.” Landry Jones, who started while the playoff-bound Steelers rested Ben Roethlisberger, took Pittsburgh 75 yards in nine plays, the last a pretty lob to the end zone that Cobi Hamilton hauled in to give the Steelers (11-5) their seventh straight victory after a 4-5 start.
Griffin, cleared to play after sustaining a concussion against San Diego, showed small flashes of competence during his best half of football of the season.
Griffin threw a pick in the red zone to thwart one drive then watched a snap sail over his head on Cleveland’s next possession to set up an 11-yard touchdown pass from Jones to DeAngelo Williams and the Steelers were right back in it.
Cleveland appeared to have things well in hand in the third quarter when cornerback Brien Boddy-Calhoun stepped in front of Jones’ pass and zigzagged 67 yards.
When he stretched the ball across the goal line, Pittsburgh wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey knocked it loose and Jones fell on it in the end zone for a touchback.
