PITTSBURGH — Cleveland wide receiver Greg Little caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Thaddeus Lewis and tied the game with the Pittsburgh Steelers at 10-10 with 11:03 remaining in the third quarter of play from Heinz Field.

On second-and-goal from the seven, Lewis took the snap from center Alex Mack and dropped back to pass. With his initial options covered by the Steelers’ defense, Lewis rolled to his left and found Little along the back line of the end zone for the touchdown. After releasing the pass, Lewis was hit by Steelers linebacker James Harrison, which resulted in a 15-yard penalty on the veteran defender.

Earlier in the six-play scoring drive, the Browns faced a fourth down from their own 25-yard line. Long-snapper Christian Yount utilized a direct snap to defensive back Ray Ventrone, and the veteran ran for a 35-yard gain.

The fake punt came two plays after the Browns faced a third-and-13 following John Greco’s false start penalty.
