During a long punt return, Brown was penalized for kicking Cleveland punter Spencer Lanning in the face.


Brown was called for unnecessary roughness and penalized 15 yards. The penalty didn't hurt the Pittsburgh offense, though. Le'Veon Bell broke a 38-yard touchdown run two plays later to put the Steelers up 24-3.

Lanning poked fun at the incident on Twitter after the game.
