Browns Vs. Steelers Final Score: Colt McCoy's 2 Late Interceptions Kills Cleveland's Chances In 14-3 Loss

Ben Roethlisberger was able to overcome a second quarter injury to lead the Steelers to a 14-3 victory on Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.  Colt McCoy, on the other hand, couldn't comeback from a helmet-to-helmet hit to potentially help the Browns pull off an upset. 

Down 7-3 in the fourth quarter, Cleveland was at the Steelers' 16 yard line, thanks to a roughing the passing penalty called on Jerome Harrison for leading with the crown of his helmet and connecting with McCoy's head. The play injured McCoy, but McCoy was able to return two plays later. Unfortunately, on his second throw after returning to the game, he was intercepted in the end zone by William Gay with a little over three minutes to play. 

A couple plays later, Roethlisberger connected with Antonio Brown for a 79 yard touchdown to put things out of reach. 

McCoy would throw two more interceptions on the Browns' last-ditch effort (one was reversed) and Cleveland ultimately fell by a final of 14-3. 

Roethlisberger, with a heavy limp, was 16-of-21 passing with 281 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. Antonio Brown had a career high 151 yards receiving, including the aforementioned 79 yard touchdown reception. 

Colt McCoy was 18-of-35 for 209 yards passing and two interceptions. For whatever it's worth, both of his interceptions came in the final four minutes of the game after Harrison's hit temporarily knocked him out of the game.
