After catching a touchdown pass vs. the Indianapolis Colts last week, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins described himself as a "magnet" to the end zone.
Against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Higgins once again found himself connected to his favorite spot.
While the Browns offense got off to a sluggish start against the Steelers, it found some momentum late in the first half. On what would mark its second-to-last drive of the second quarter, quarterback Baker Mayfield capped a 9-play, 75-yard drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Higgins, cutting Pittsburgh's lead to 24-7.
Mayfield's touchdown throw came after he threw two first-half interceptions, including a pick-6 to Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. The rough start put the Browns in a tough spot while facing one of the NFL's most talented teams at Heinz Field, where they haven't won since 2003.
Meanwhile, Higgins' touchdown catch marked his second in as many games, after the fifth-year receiver was previously inactive for games against the Washington Football Team and Dallas Cowboys earlier this year. Earlier this week, Higgins, who now has nine career touchdown catches to his credit, discussed his impressive catch-to-touchdown ratio.
"I am like a magnet to the end zone for some reason," Higgins said. "All I can say is when the ball comes to me, I try to make the plays and it so happens when we get down to the red zone. I am not the fastest. I am smart, and I find a way to get open. At the end of the day, I realize I have been in the NFL for five years because I am smart and I know different things. That has helped me along this journey."
