Ford displayed great athleticism while traveling 70 yards down the field and just missing scoring a touchdown. A key shoestring tackle by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick stopped the touchdown. Defenders were perplexed by Ford’s quick movements as he first veered right before quickly changing directions to the left. Deshaun Watson’s crucial block also helped to slow Fitzpatrick down.

Pierre Strong needed two tenacious rushes to gain the last yard needed for the touchdown. Watson seized control of the situation by rushing into the end zone and making the extra point. With 10:01 remaining in the third quarter, this sequence gave the Browns a 22-19 lead. Ford was given a total of five carries for an amazing 75 yards thanks to his outstanding performance.
