Steelers' James Washington fights through pass interference for TD catch

NFL, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers

PITTSBURGH -- Just as the sun came out at Heinz Field, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Devlin Hodges rifled a deep pass to receiver James Washington in the end zone on Sunday.

Despite defensive pass interference from Cleveland Browns cornerback T.J. Carrie, Washington came down with it for a 30-yard touchdown, the Steelers' first of the afternoon to tie the game 10-10 with a minute left in the first half.

Hodges passed the ball five straight times on the Steelers' final drive of the half, connecting with Tevin Jones for a 28-yard gain over the middle a play before his touchdown strike to Washington.

A week earlier, Hodges and Washington combined for a 79-yard score in a win over the Bengals.
