The hit on Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell at the end of the first half was ugly. The decision to try a fake field goal in that situation was questionable at best but the injury to Boswell is what could really hurt the Steelers.

Did the officials miss a roughing the passer penalty? It certainly looked like it. Former NFL official and CBS Sports rules analyst Gene Steratore agreed. According to Steratore, the fact it was a kicker and not a quarterback and not a quarterback is irrelevant and there should have been a penalty on the Browns and a first down for the Steelers.
