Browns score first on bad snap to Ben Roethlisberger

The Browns are off to a strong start thanks to a Steelers miscue.

The Pittsburgh Steelers home playoff opener is off to an inauspicious start. Center Maurkice Pouncey air-mailed a shotgun snap over Ben Roethlisberger’s head on the first play of the game. The ball rolled to the end zone and Cleveland Browns safety Karl Joseph eventually fell on the ball to secure the touchdown.

This is the Browns first postseason appearance since 2002, which happened to also come against the Steelers. Cleveland lost that game 36-33 after blowing a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter.
