The Pittsburgh Steelers are clicking on all cylinders against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. While quarterback Baker Mayfield continues to struggle, his counterpart under center in Ben Roethlisberger is finding ways to capitalize.
The Steelers’ offense wasted no time taking advantage of Mayfield’s second pick of the day as Roethlisberger found wide receiver James Washington wide open in the end zone to take a 24-0 lead, via NFL Twitter:

Mayfield’s first interception resulted in a pick-six thanks to the efforts of safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Although cornerback Cam Sutton was not able to take it the other way this time, it took less than two minutes for Washington to torch the Browns’ secondary.
Cleveland had a chance to potentially take control of this competitive AFC North. However, it is looking as though Pittsburgh was determined to make a big statement regarding the pecking order in this division.
Regardless, the onus will remain on the Steelers to keep their foot on the gas in the second half.
