Browns narrow lead, Steelers answer

Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker

PITTSBURGH -- The Cleveland Browns came out firing in the second half. Quarterback Derek Anderson completed two big passes, which included a 1-yard touchdown to fullback Lawrence Vickers, to cut Pittsburgh’s lead to 17-14.

The other key play was a 43-yard pass to rookie receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu was frozen by the playaction and didn’t get back in time to stop Massaquoi from getting behind him.

On the injury front, Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson has a shoulder injury and will not return. Cleveland is already without starting outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley.

Update: The Steelers answer quick with a Rashard Mendenhall touchdown run to up the lead to 24-14. Pittsburgh's offense is having its way with Cleveland.
