The Browns faced a tough challenge this week after learning that Deshaun Watson’s season had come to an end. However, the team was able to pull out a 13-10 win over the Steelers thanks to the help of rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson.
In the second half, Thompson-Robinson struggled to move the ball with the Browns. But in a crucial moment, he completed four straight passes for 39 yards, putting the team in position for Dustin Hopkins’ game-winning field goal at the end of the fourth quarter.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski praised Thompson-Robinson’s performance after the game. “Those are big moments where you’re looking for your guy to come through,” he said via Jake Trotter of ESPN.com. “He came through when it mattered.”
Despite some struggles in the second half, Thompson-Robinson was able to get the job done and help keep the Browns’ playoff hopes alive.
