PITTSBURGH — Cleveland kicker Phil Dawson converted a 51-yard field goal attempt, which helped the Browns tie the Pittsburgh Steelers, at 3-3, with 3:48 remaining in the first half of play from Heinz Field.

Dawson’s field goal is tied for the second-longest field goal in Heinz Field history. Former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed set the record with a 52-yarder in 2010.

With the kick, Dawson is now seven of seven on field goals of at least 50 yards this season. He is 13 of 14 from 40 or more and entered the game with an NFL-best 13 field goals from at least 50 yards since the start of the 2011 season.

Dawson’s kick capped off a 10-play, 47-yard drive that lasted 4:05.
