2002 Steelers 16 vs Browns 13 OT

The bizarre 100th meeting between the Steelers and Browns will forever be known as "The Do-Over." Trailing 13-6 late in the 4th quarter and facing a possible 0-3 start, Tommy Maddox comes off the bench to replace a struggling Kordell Stewart and pull out a MUST win, hitting 11 of 13 passes for 122 yards an a TD in a little less than a quarter of football. After tying the game on a TD pass to Burress to force overtime, Maddox' first pass in OT is picked off by the Browns. But Phil Dawson's 45-yd FG attempt bounces off Kimo von Oelhoffen's helmet and the Steelers have new life. The Steelers drive deep into Browns territory, but Todd Peterson's FG attempt is blocked on 2nd down. The Ball bounces back to Peterson, who in true kicker fashion fumbles as soon as he's hit and after a scramble, Fiala ultimately recovers the ball for Pittsburgh. Because the ball never crossed the line of scrimmage on the blocked FG attempt, the Steelers retain possession and Peterson makes good on his 31-yd "do-over" kick to win the game.

Isn't this game evidence that if team loses in a strange way it's Cleveland that does it? They referenced the Kansas City game with Dwayne Ruud throwing his helmet thinking the play was over that's another strange or boneheaded way the Browns lose.

Laugh Yep.

Losing teams FIND ways to lose, and there is no better example of this than Cleveland.
