The Browns continue to manhandle the champs

CLEVELAND — The Steelers seem ready to play now and showed a little more purpose on their first drive of the second half. But they got nowhere.

The Browns are finding nice gaps in the rushing game and will do whatever they can to milk this clock. Cleveland is sticking primarily to outside runs — avoiding Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton and the middle of the field — and picking up nice chunks. Browns QB Brady Quinn is not getting much done, though, even with the running game clicking.

So, to this point, here’s the story of the game: In the first half, Josh Cribbs had 64 rushing yards, 32 kickoff return yards and 55 punt return yards, for a total of 151 total yards. The Steelers had 70 net yards in the half. There you have it.
