Browns hanging close

The Browns are losing 17-14 early in the third quarter, and they have only themselves to blame for not being ahead.

One Browns possession started at the Cleveland 48 and one at the Steelers 39 after Alex Hall recovered a fumbled snap by the Steelers. The Browns came up empty both times.

Josh Cribbs, of course, scored the Browns touchdown in the first half. He returned a kickoff 98 yards down the right sideline. The touchdown atoned for an interception he threw from the Wildcat formation in the first quarter.

Dropped passes plagued Derek Anderson in the first half. At least three were dropped. Anderson was 2 of 9 for 14 yards in the first half. Coupled with his 2 of 17 last week, he is 4 of 26 for 37 yards over the last six quarters. . . Anderson completed his first three passes of the third quarter to Mohamed Massaquoi. The second gained 43 to the Steelers 7 and set up a touchdown pass to Lawrence Vickers.
