Browns Throttle Steelers, 41-14, as Jim Brown Shines

Oct. 28, 1962 - An alert defense and the return to top form of Jim Brown sparked the Cleveland Browns to a 41-14 victory today over the Pittsburgh Steelers in an NFL game before 35,417 in Pittsburgh. The defensive unit scored one touchdown, set up another, and held the Steelers in check most of the afternoon. Brown, bottled up in several games this season, ran for 93 yards on 23 carries and caught 4 passes for 35 yards. One pass reception was good for a fifteen-yard touchdown, and he scored another on a one-yard plunge. Jim Ninowski, Cleveland’s starting quarterback, suffered a dislocated left shoulder early in the second quarter. He may be sidelined for a while.
