The Cleveland Browns should have been out to a 2-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers at home. On a day when star running back Nick Chubb returned to Cleveland Browns Stadium, and where the Browns are looking to advance to 7-3 on the season, the team has come out firing. On the first defensive play of the game, defensive end Myles Garrett sacked Steelers’ quarterback Kenny Pickett in his own endzone.
Or so it looked to everyone other than the NFL officials. It was quite evident that Pickett did not get the ball out of the endzone when Garrett brought him to the ground. However, the officials ruled him down at the one-yard line and missed the challenge flag thrown by head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Leave it to Browns’ fans to react accordingly to such an egregious call. Here is how Browns Twitter reacted to the bad no-call on an apparent safety.
MYLES GARRETT DOES IT AGAIN 😤🦾

Myles Garrett should have just gotten 2 points. COME ON

I’m pretty sure 1st down was a safety.
I’m positive 2nd down was a safety.
Browns DL is a wrecking ball today so far. Keep it up.

I don’t know what a safety is anymore 🤣. Thought the Browns should have had one there

I have no clue why they didn’t challenge the Myles Garrett sack, ball look like it got tucked behind the line by Pickett?
Close to a safety, but what a start! #Browns
