After Deshaun Watson’s season-ending news, the Browns turned to rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson. The decision paid off as he helped them secure a 13-10 victory over the Steelers on Sunday. Despite struggling to move the ball in the second half, Thompson-Robinson completed four consecutive passes for 39 yards, setting the Browns up for Dustin Hopkins’ game-winning field goal at the end of the fourth quarter.
Thompson-Robinson’s earlier success was also notable as he completed 13 of 16 passes, allowing the Browns to take a commanding 10-0 lead. However, the team faced challenges in the second half, including five punts and an interception. Despite these issues, Thompson-Robinson ultimately got the job done and led the Browns to victory. As a result, their playoff hopes are now looking promising.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski praised Thompson-Robinson’s performance, emphasizing his ability to step up in crucial moments. “Dorian played exceptionally well today,” said Stefanski. “He showed great poise and leadership under pressure.” With Watson out for the rest of the season, Thompson-Robinson will likely be thrust into a larger role with Cleveland moving forward.
