NFL Replay: Cleveland Browns beat Pittsburgh Steelers on 'Thursday Night Football'

It seems as if the smoke is still clearing from a dumpster fire of a loss to the New York Jets on Sunday but the sight of the Pittsburgh Steelers on the opposing sideline should serve clear warning that what is in the past must stay there for the Browns.

From the time Kareem Hunt stepped out of bounds to stop the clock two seconds shy of the two-minute warning until a last-ditch effort to set up a potential game-winning field goal was snuffed out when a pass from Jacoby Brissett intended for Amari Cooper was intercepted with eight seconds to go, everything that could possibly go wrong did go wrong for the Browns in a disastrous 31-30 loss to the New York Jets.
