Yep. Dumb blunder. But he made an excellent challenge in the first half on the Edward's TD catch.
Anderson did one heck of job in the first half (QB Rating 114.6), but was simply atrocious in the second half.
Cribbs is an animal. 204 total yds in kickoff returns (longest was for 100).
Jamal Lewis losing that one fumble by trying to get the extra yd and being stood up and stripped was plain dumb.
But the biggest idiotic blunder was Dinkin's holding call on that last punt return that would have gave the Browns the ball on the Pitt 38 yd line; but instead, ut the ball back on their own 33. From there they moved the ball, but missed a 53 yd FG attempt to send the game into O.T.
But the Brown's defense, even though they did a better job today of putting pressure on Ben, still is the worst in the NFL. When it came down to it, Ben led them to victory.
And while I didn't expect it to be a blowout like that first game, with Frye at QB, I didn't think the game would be as close as it was.
The reason the Browns were 5-3 going into this game is because their offense, which is top 5 overall in the NFL, has been able to compensate for such a sad defense. But it keeps catching up to them.
