Blowout time

January 2, 2011 - Mike McLain
CLEVELAND -- The Steelers are leading 31-3 at halftime after a first half that showed the Steelers to be either really good or the Browns really bad.

The Browns showed no ability on defense to stop the Steelers. It started from the moment Ben Roethlisberger thew a 56-yard toichdown pass to Mike Wallace on their first play from scrimmage.

The Browns helped the Steelers by committing three turnovers -- all interceptions thrown by quarterback Colt McCoy. The first bounced off the hands of tight end Ben Watson and into the grasp of safety Troy Polamula.

The Btowns had a chance to score a touchdown in the second quarter. Tight end Robert Royal dropped two passes in the end zone.

The crowd is starting to thin out, leaving plenty of "Terrible Towels" waving.

If Browns coach Eric Mangini needed an impressive performance to retain his job, he's in trouble. This is developing into a game as bad as the Steelers' 41-0 win over the Browns here on Christamas Eve game in 2005.
