The Cleveland Browns got their butts handed to them to such a degree that there isn’t one silver lining out of this game, everyone failed.

The Cleveland Browns got their proverbial teeth kicked in by the Pittsburgh Steelers. The saddest part, is the Steelers aren’t better, they just had a better plan. That was evident with their notorious blitz packages, and their ability to blow up their line of scrimmage regardless of the offensive play. Pass play? Blown up. Running play? Blown up. Special teams play? Blown up.

Standing in line to get something to drink? Blown up.

The Steelers had no real opposition from the offensive line, and despite nothing else being so one-sided, that matchup is the only matchup in football you can’t lose. Not once. Not ever. It’s why the best teams aren’t the ones with the best playmakers but are the ones with the best offensive lines.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski even admitted to not getting his team properly prepared for this game and it showed. The offensive line looked lost and unable to block anyone at any point during the game. That constant pressure was too much and it caused the Browns to pull Baker Mayfield at the end of the 3rd quarter because they knew they were out of it.

The team got obliterated, that’s why this week’s usual column won’t have any good in it, because what good was there? Mayfield didn’t die? That’s a pretty low bar for “good”.
