There was an intensity on the field and in the crowd for the grudge match between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns on Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

But just as the players kept the action clean on the field, there were no reports of serious trouble among the crowd of 62,157 in the stands.

Only a handful of incidents were reported by Pittsburgh Public Safety, and they were minor.

The most serious was an alleged assault on an Allegheny County deputy sheriff. It was the only arrest; five non-traffic citations were issued.

There were 16 medical calls, which required five people to be taken to the hospital for falls. One person was in stable condition after experiencing chest pain and another was checked out for intoxication.

Most in the crowd enjoyed the result: The Steelers finished it, 20-13.
