2000 Steelers 22 vs Browns 0

After starting the season 0-3 (including an embarrassing early loss to the Browns), the Steelers win their 4th straight by simply driving The Bus right through the Cleveland Browns (33 carries, 105 yds, 1 TD). After Kent Graham starts a putrid 3 of 12, Cowher replaces him with Kordell Stewart who fares little better passing (7 of 13, 74 yds) but certainly looks more athletic handing the ball off to Bettis. Defensively, the Steelers overwhelm QB Doug Pederson, forcing 3 INTs while giving up only 55 net passing yards and holding Cleveland to 104 total yards. Cleveland finishes 1-12 on 3rd down and the Steelers enjoy a 2-1 time of possession. Cleveland only has the ball in Pittburgh territory 1 time the entire game (after an unnecessary roughing penalty is tagged onto a long kick return by Jamel White) but comes away empty when Phil Dawson misses a 42-yd FG attempt.
