The Browns got the ball to start the half, but the defense forced a three-and-out courtesy of Will Allen holding Greg Little to a four-yard completion on third-and-five.
Ben Roethlisberger went to work from his own 23-yard line finding Le’Veon Bell for 11 yards. Bell added a six-yard gain, and Roethlisberger went to Emmanuel Sanders for six more yards and the first down. Heath Miller pulled in a six-yard reception and Bell added a three-yard gain. Jonathan Dwyer was stopped on consecutive carries for no gain, giving the Browns the ball on downs.
It would be the Steelers defense that would come up big next. Will Gay came on the blitz and hit Jason Campbell, knocking the ball free and Will Allen recovered and returned it 49 yards to the four-yard line.
The Steelers converted fast with a four-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Sanders for a 20-3 lead.
Brandon Weeden got the call again at quarterback, and got the Browns going, driving them down to the 28-yard line. They would go no further, and on fourth down Billy Cundiff’s 46-yard field goal sailed wide left in the wind.
