The Cleveland Browns defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers with a score of 29-17 after taking the lead with a score of 14-13 in the first half of the game on Thursday. In response to the loss, the Steelers’ quarterback Mitch Trubisky spoke with the reporters about his team’s performance.
“We’re getting there, but that’s not where we need to be to win,” Trubisky said. “I thought in the first half, we took some steps in the right direction, the second half wasn’t good enough.”
Pittsburgh got off to a strong start in the early of second-half, but after Jaylyn Warren received a shovel, the play was called back due to an illegal penalty kick. From there, Cleveland took the lead.
Trubisky expressed his thoughts on what transpired in the second half, citing “a little bit of rhythm.”
“We just didn’t play on the plays we needed; we had some crucial plays in the second half,” he commented. “Then, if we get those plays, it could be a different story. We just didn’t hit them. We should go see the movie and see how we improve.”
Trubisky continued to reflect on the “inconsistency” that caused the second-half struggle.
“Inconsistency, yes,” Trubisky added. “We just didn’t play those plays we needed. We hit some first-half, which is why we scored 14 points. 3 points in the second half wouldn’t do that for us.”
There were several instances where the Steelers had the ball in their possession after the second half when they began to lose control of the game. However, it occurred with less than 10 minutes and six minutes remaining.
With this loss, the Steelers have one win and two losses this season, putting them in fourth place in the 2022 AFC North Standings. Cleveland, on the other hand, has grown in confidence after finishing the season with a 2-1 record and first place in the standings.
Trubisky currently leads the Steelers in passing yards. In addition to recording 569 yards, he finished the Browns game with 20 passing completions, 32 passing attempts and 207 yards.
