PITTSBURGH -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins had never caught a touchdown pass in his career in the National Football League entering Sunday's AFC North Division game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field, but he is making up for lost time.
Higgins capped off a seven-play, 68-yard drive by catching a five-yard touchdown pass from rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer out of the halftime break and drawing the Browns even with the Steelers, 21-21, early in the third quarter.
On third-and-goal from the Pittsburgh five-yard line, Kizer took the shotgun snap, scanned the field for an open receiver and found Higgins at the goal line for the touchdown. Higgins began the play in the slot on the left side of the formation, maintained separation from a defensive back and caught the touchdown.
It was Higgins' second receiving touchdown of the game, as he hauled in a 56-yard score from Kizer in the first half.
