The Browns held the ball longer than the Steelers (30:17 to 29:43) but did not use the clock efficiently at the end of both halves. In the second quarter, a penalty and Cleveland's inability to get out of bounds forced the team to scramble, resulting in a turnover. In the fourth quarter, the Browns used their final timeout before the two-minute warning, preventing them from stopping the clock on their final possession.
