The Cleveland Browns’ quest to start the season 2-0 for the first time since 1993 took a hit on the very first play of Monday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson dropped back to pass on the game’s very first play, and his pass hit off the hands of wide receiver Harrison Bryant and deflected right into the hands of linebacker Alex Highsmith, who took it 30 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring with a pick-six.

Watson, who also had an interception in Cleveland’s Week 1 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, now has seven interceptions in eight career games for the Browns.

The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback has struggled to put together consistent play so far in his time in Cleveland.
