LIVE UPDATES: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

CLEVELAND - It's rivalry week as the Cleveland Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Browns (0-10) are in search of their first win as the Steelers (4-5) aim to improve to .500. 

The Browns haven't played in 10 days, when they blew a first half lead to lose to Baltimore, 28-7. Pittsburgh comes off a 35-30 loss to Dallas last week, giving the Steelers a four-game losing streak.

WKYC's Stephanie Metzger will be providing live updates here for you to follow along.

3:45 p.m.: Terrelle Pryor takes a hard hit from Mike Mitchell. After being slow to get up, Pryor returns to the sidelines.

3:21 p.m.: McCown finds Gary Barnidge at the goal line for a touchdown but Parkey misses the PAT to cut the Steelers' lead to 17-9 with 9:45 left in the game.

3:14 p.m.: The Browns announce Kessler is undergoing evaluation for a possible concussion. 

3:07 p.m.: Kessler finds Corey Coleman for 17 yards but takes a hard hit from Lawrence Timmons. Timmons is called for unnecessary roughness but Kessler is slow to get up. He's replaced with Josh McCown at QB. McCown connects with Coleman to conclude the third quarter.

3:04 p.m.: Amid a 15-play drive, Pittsburgh can't come through in the red zone, resulting in a 22-yard field goal for a 17-3 lead with three seconds remaining in the third quarter.

2:34 p.m.: The Browns force the Steelers to punt on their opening possession of the second half. The Browns' drive attempt falls short despite being first and goal at the 1, but Cody Parkey connects a 24-yard field goal to get the Browns on the board.

2:13 p.m.: The Browns' red zone defense holds tight until a pair of penalties. A holding penalty on the Browns leads to an untimed down. Roethlisberger can't connect with Antonio Brown but a pass interference called on Joe Haden proves costly as Bell carries it in on another untimed down.

1 p.m.: The Browns receive on the opening drive. Quarterback Cody Kessler connects with Terrelle Pryor for 36 yards, but Kessler is picked off by Artie Burns at the Pittsburgh 4-yard-line to turn the ball over. It's Kessler's second interception of the season.
