Steelers QB Mason Rudolph connects with Jaylen Samuels for a TD
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels put the team on the board for their first touchdown courtesy of a pass from quarterback Mason Rudolph. This cut the deficit that they were facing against the Cleveland Browns to just one possession at the time.

On a night that the Steelers’ offense has looked downright awful, this is a welcome sight. Not shown in the video are the four Cleveland penalties that put the Steelers in the position to score. Without those penalties, it’s hard to envision Pittsburgh putting any points on the board.
The Steelers have had one other real scoring opportunity, and it ended poorly. Kicker Chris Boswell hooked a field goal attempt after the hold was juggled. Miscues like this lead to losses, and that could certainly be the case in this game.
To give credit where credit is due, the Browns defense has played a great game. Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph hasn’t looked comfortable in the pocket all game long, and the Pittsburgh run game has been nonexistent. The coverage has been plagued with penalties but that’s the lone weakness.
