CLEVELAND (AP) — Jacoby Brissett's assignment is clear: keep the Browns competitive and in contention while Deshaun Watson's away.
He's doing much more than that.
During a 29-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night, Brissett, who has zero illusions about his role with Cleveland, effectively moved the offense with pin-point throws and picked up first downs with timely quarterback sneaks.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns starting linebacker and team captain Anthony Walker Jr. will miss the rest of the season after tearing a quadriceps tendon in Thursday night's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers knew what was coming. More specifically, they knew who was coming. And it didn't matter.
“No lead is safe in the NFL” is more than a cliche this season.
Three teams overcame fourth-quarter deficits of at least 13 points to win last week for the first time in 30 years.
In some Tampa Bay-area schools, students use foam rollers and vibrating spheres to massage their muscles as they work toward goals for strength and flexibility. It’s all part of a new physical education curriculum from quarterback Tom Brady, whose vision for healthy living is fueling a fitness empire.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have admittedly made plenty of rookie mistakes so far.
However they insist their young punt returner failing to take the field for a punt return Sunday wasn't one of them.

Good stuff, of course. But the rookie wide receiver has focused even more in the film room on the plays he didn't make.

The homecoming for Buffalo’s first-round pick has the potential to be both special and quite the test.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Two games into the season, the Super Bowl appears to be an attainable goal for the Buffalo Bills.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Oh, what could have been.
