Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Pat Freiermuth made an incredible go-ahead touchdown catch against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday that proved to be the difference-maker in the win.

Ben Roethlisberger found the first-year tight end in the back of the end zone. Freiermuth had to tip the ball to himself and get both feet in bounds to complete the touchdown. He did all that during the magnificent play and put the Steelers up 15-10.
