Cleveland Browns veterans finally experience success vs. Steelers

Browns end losing streak to Steelers with win last Sunday.

The Cleveland Browns ended a four-game losing streak to the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday with a 20-14 win at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

As coach Pat Shurmur tries to guide the Browns to a positive finish, beating the Steelers for the first time since 2009 is worth noting. The win had to be sweet for those veterans who suffered through the four consecutive losses to the rival Steelers.

While the losing has been a struggle for the Browns, Shurmur remains proud of the effort his team puts forth and glad to have that hard work rewarded.

"I think we've said this all along, these guys just keep playing," Shurmur said. "They keep playing hard. I think the people in Cleveland, the people that follow our team should be proud of the fact that they're playing hard."

The win over Pittsburgh helped Shurmur continue pushing his team to continue grinding and trying to improve despite what may be happening around the team.

"That's the challenge as you go through a long season." Shurmur said. "You just keep battling and you just keep fighting. You don't worry about what people are saying, and you just keep playing the game. If you're always there and you're always fighting, at some point you find a way to finish. At least in this situation, yesterday we found a way to finish. Now, once you do it once then you try to recreate it a bunch of times."

The Browns will try to recreate a winning finish in Oakland on Sunday when they face the Raiders.
