CLEVELAND -- The Pittsburgh Steelers have made it a one-score game thanks to Jeff Reed. The Steelers' kicker connected on a 42-yard field goal that cut the Browns' lead to 13-6 after three quarters.

Pittsburgh drove 49 yards on seven plays for the score. The team has struggled to string together drives all night against a scrappy Cleveland (1-11) defense, which has seven sacks.

The Steelers (6-6) need this game to remain in the playoff hunt. The Browns have played efficient football so far and are giving Pittsburgh a huge scare.
