DeShone Kizer scores first National Football League touchdown

NFL AFC Wild Card Playoff Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

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.

Cleveland.com reports that Cleveland Browns players ran out of the tunnel on Sunday prior to their game against the Steelers accompanied by police, firefighters and EMTs.

A blocked punt gave the Steelers an early 7-0 lead against the Browns early in the first quarter. 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.

Despite taking two sacks that spoiled the Browns' second drive of the game, Kizer completed six of his seven attempts for 45 yards in the first quarter.

What it means for the Browns: 2017 was supposed to build off last season's 1-15 campaign.

Fans say win or lose, Sunday was a victory for the local law enforcement, the Browns, and the community. The Browns offense will not be the highest-octane offense the Steelers face, but if it is unable to hold the Browns in check, then the season may be a long one for Butler's unit.

And he finished it off by himself with a one-yard touchdown run.

The Steelers took a two-score lead over the Browns when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger slipped a two-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jesse James over the middle of the field with 5:37 to play in the third quarter.

The Browns controlled the clock for more than 12 minutes in the opening quarter and tied the score 7-7 on Kizer's 1-yard keeper with 22 seconds left. Watt also intercepted a pass late in the third quarter when the Browns had driven inside the Steelers' 30 and were trying to cut into an 11-point deficit. Roethlisberger got excellent protection on the play and found James in front of Schobert.
