Pittsburgh Steelers won't trade Le'Veon Bell or rescind RB's franchise tag

Josh Gordon did his best Randy Moss impression on his only catch in the Cleveland Browns' tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers - a 17-yard touchdown. Chris Boswell's 42-yard attempt with 1:44 left in overtime sailed wide left.

It was the NFL's first tie in Week 1 since 1971 and the league's first overall since Washington and Cincinnati ended in a 27-27 deadlock on October 30, 2016.

Although Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner looked solid replacing Le'Veon Bell in Week 1, the outcome of the game left fans less than thrilled. Tyrod Taylor dropped back and released a pass to the sideline to try and get a big gain to get the Browns in field goal range.

Roethlisberger completed 23-of-41 passes for 335 yards one touchdown and three interceptions.

Conner had 31 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

DeSean Jackson caught scoring passes of 58 and 36 yards to highlight his five-catch, 146-yard day before leaving with a concussion.

After the first interception, Cleveland moved it 16 yards.

After the match, Williams posted this beautifully wholesome post to her Instagram with the caption: " Did Momma win? ". Asked if Williams is the best player in the world despite being ranked 26th, Sevastova said: "It's tough to say".

The Saints, coming off a playoff appearance and hosting a team that won only five games last season, were among the more heavily favored teams in Week 1.

It's easy to pile on the Cleveland Browns. Alvin Kamara scored on a 1-yard run and again on a 7-yard catch.

Player holdouts are nothing new, of course, but what makes Bell's case different is that his teammates appeared genuinely shocked that he didn't return to Pittsburgh last week. He scrambled to his left for 12 yards at the two-minute warning.

Browns rookie Denzel Ward stepped up in the first quarter, he intercepted Ben Roethlisberger's pass when the Steelers were having a good drive. Garoppolo was 2-0 as a starter for the Patriots in 2016 and 5-0 for the 49ers past year.

-Minnesota defeated San Francisco 24-16. On Conner's first career touchdown, the offensive line that has been critical of Bell mobbed his replacement. Sutton was selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Steelers after playing four years with the Vols. The All-Pro running back is still holding out over a bitter contract dispute, causing some animosity among his teammates.

It was one year ago in this very same game where T.J. Watt made his National Football League debut against the Cleveland Browns.
