The Steelers heard the league’s statement confirming officials were wrong on an unnecessary roughness penalty on Myles Garrett. They wonder why the league office hasn’t commented on a punt return call that wasn’t overturned on replay.

A Pittsburgh punt appeared to hit Browns running back Nick Chubb‘s helmet. A scramble for the ball resulted in Steelers safety Sean Davis recovering.

Officials ruled it had not touched Chubb, and the league office let the play stand after a replay challenge initiated by the Steelers.

“All of us saw the ball hit that guy,’’ Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Why that play was not corrected, I have no idea. Ask New York. They felt comfort talking about the hit on Ben [Roethlisberger] was inappropriately officiated. I’d be interested to see their comments regarding that play.”

The fourth-quarter play would have given the Steelers the ball at their own 47.

Pittsburgh and Cleveland tied 21-21.
