Pittsburgh Steelers defeat Cleveland Browns, 21-18, in 2017 regular-season opener

Pittsburgh Steelers first-round draft pick T.J. Watt was raising eyebrows in his National Football League debut on Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns.

The Steelers scored their first TD on a blocked punt and sacked Kizer seven times. Linebacker Tyler Matakevich knifed through the middle of the line to swat the ball and Anthony Chickillo fell on it in the end zone for the touchdown. Garrett suffered an ankle injury in practice that will keep him out of the opener at the least, and now the season has begun with a blocked punt being recovered for a touchdown by the rival Steelers.

Watt's debut includes six tackles, two sacks and an interception through the first three quarters. T.J.

They did make it close at the end after cutting it to 21-18 following a touchdown pass from Kizer to Corey Coleman, followed by a successful two-point conversion, but it was simply too late as the Steelers were able to run out the clock after a questionable reception from Brown that should have been knocked down by the defense anyway.
