Police won’t investigate Browns Steelers Brawl – Pittsburgh Current

The hit that Browns defensive end Myles Garrett laid on Steelers QB Mason Rudolph will not trigger an automatic police investigation

By Charlie Deitch

A Cleveland Police spokesperson says that the hit that Browns defensive end Myles Garrett laid on Steelers QB Mason Rudolph will not trigger an automatic police investigation. Garrett ripped Rudolph’s helmet off the signal-caller’s head and bashed him in the head with it.

Cleveland Police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said that in order for there to be an investigation in this instance, Rudolph would have to return to Cleveland and file formal charges with the police. Ciaccia says an investigation would then take place and the prosecuting attorney’s office would decide what, if any, charges would be filed.

On Friday morning, Rudolph’s agent Timothy Younger told the Post-Gazette’s Ray Fittipaldo: “that he is still gathering information on Thursday night’s incident before any decisions regarding legal or civil action on Rudolph’s behalf are made,” Fittipaldo wrote. On Thursday night Younger tweeted:

Younger & Associates/QB Limited@YoungerAssoc

There are many risks an NFL QB assumes with every snap taken on the field. Being hit on your uncovered head by a helmet being swung by a 275 lb DE is not one of them. Tonight could have had a catastrophic ending. The matter will be reviewed thoroughly.

Three ejected after nasty brawl tarnishes end of Steelers 21-7 loss to Browns

Three players were ejected after a nasty brawl between the Steelers and Browns in the closing seconds of Thursday night’s game in Cleveland.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett tore off Mason Rudolph‘s helmet and struck the Steelers quarterback in the head with it after the two tangled on the ground.

Several skirmishes ensued. Garrett, Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were ejected. Pouncey got tossed after throwing a couple punches and kicking Garrett in the helmet while he was on the ground.

What a beautiful 26-24 win for the Steelers | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Winning cures everything. At least for a week. But man, the diseased football game we witnessed Sunday at Heinz Field — an inexplicable, 26-24 Steelers victory — sure put that theory to the test.

Start with the officiating. Brad Allen’s crew was awful, whether it was flagging phantom late hits, mangling interference calls or somehow penalizing Indy’s Bobby Okereke for daring to tackle Ryan Switzer on a punt return.

The new interference replay rule continues to confound. Nobody understands it. Nobody knows what replay czar Al Riveron will see, or willfully ignore, back in New York.

Devin Bush and Devlin Hodges lead Steelers to 24-17 win over Chargers – The Washington Post

The word is success when undrafted rookie Devlin Hodges made his first NFL start for Pittsburgh after the injuries to other quarterbacks,  Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph.

James Conner scored two touchdowns, Devin Bush recovered a pair of turnovers and Devlin Hodges won his first NFL start as the Pittsburgh Steelers held off the Los Angeles Chargers 24-17 on Sunday night.

Conner had his first game with both a rushing and receiving touchdown and accounted for 119 scrimmage yards (41 rushing, 78 receiving).

Bush forced turnovers on the Chargers second and third drives. The rookie linebacker scored his first NFL touchdown when he scooped up a backward pass from Philip Rivers that Melvin Gordon was unable to handle and went 9 yards to give the Steelers a 7-0 lead

Bush got his second turnover four plays later when he intercepted a Rivers’ pass that was deflected by defensive end Tyson Alualu at the line of scrimmage. That would lead to Conner’s first TD.

The Chargers (2-4) trailed 24-0 after three quarters but rallied to get within seven on a Chase McLaughlin field goal and two TD passes from Rivers to Hunter Henry.

After Henry’s 11-yard TD catch made it 24-17, Los Angeles tried an onside kick with 1:28 remaining but it was recovered by Steelers. The Chargers forced a three-and-out and got the ball at the 1 after a punt, but Rivers was picked off by Cameron Sutton to preserve the Steelers win to improve to 2-4.

Rivers was 26 of 44 for300 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while Henry, who missed the past four games due to a knee injury, had eight receptions for 100 yards.

Conner gave the Steelers a 14-0 lead with 4:39 remaining in the first quarter with a 12-yard run around left end on a nice block from left tackle Alejandro Villanueva.

Conner put Pittsburgh up by three touchdowns with 6:34 remaining in the second when he caught a short pass from Hodges and went 26 yards up the right sideline after Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown was unable to tackle the third-year running back at the 25.

Los Angeles didn’t get on the board until one minute into the fourth quarter on Chase McLaughlin’s 38-yard field goal. Rivers ended the offense’s seven-quarter drought without a touchdown when he found Hunter Henry in the back of the end zone from 5 yards out with 7:13 remaining.
