Steelers Joe Haden seals win against former team Browns

The Steelers’ Terrell Edmunds and Mike Hilton celebrate with Joe Haden after Haden picked off Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield in the fourth quarter Sunday, Dec. 01, 2019 at Heinz Field.

Joe Haden dropped two potential game-sealing interceptions last week. He spent time at practice making sure it wouldn’t happen again.

It paid off — and against his former team of seven years, too.

Haden’s interception of Baker Mayfield with 1 minute, 6 seconds to play ended the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 20-13 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Haden couldn’t think of a better script for this game.

“I honestly couldn’t,” Haden said. “I am very excited about it. Any time you can get an interception in a close game —last week I dropped two of them to close the game, so who knows. So working on the jugs and making sure if they ball came to me, I was going to be able to catch it, so it feels good.”

Haden’s interception came while he was lunging to the ground to his left on a pass intended for Jarvis Landry. It was his second of the season, the 24th of his 10-year career and fifth since he was signed by the Steelers in August 2017.

Haden’s 14 passes defended lead the Steelers and are tied for second most in the NFL.
