CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Steelers defense picked off Deshaun Watson on the first snap of the game on Monday night in Pittsburgh. The Browns defense returned the favor on their first defensive series.
On a third-and-3 at the Steelers 16-yard line, Grant Delpit read the eyes of Kenny Pickett and stepped in front of a pass intended for George Pickens.
It’s the first Browns takeaway of the season.

Delpit led the Browns in interceptions last season with four.
However, the Browns failed to turn the pick into points as Deshaun Watson lost six yards on a sack and Dustin Hopkins missed a 43-yard field goal wide left to keep the score 7-3 in favor of the Steelers.
Pickett threw two interceptions in the Week 1 loss to the 49ers.
