CLEVELAND: Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez thought he was well within range. He believed he hit a great ball.

But his 43-yard game-winning field goal attempt with nine seconds remaining in overtime was blocked by Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt as the Browns settled for a 21-21 tie Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

“Our job is you look at the spot, you kick it and I felt like I hit a great ball and then when I looked up it was a boom-boom situation and it kind of sucks,” Gonzalez said. “That's not a pulled kick. They broke through and they're right there, so there's not much more we could do about it.”

Rain from Tropical Storm Gordon fell steadily throughout the game, but Gonzalez said weather conditions played no part in the miss. He thought he had a good rhythm with holder Britton Colquitt and long snapper Charley Hughlett and said his range going into the west end of the stadium was 50 or 51 yards.

“We had already kicked two extra points in the fourth quarter,” Gonzalez said. “Between Colquitt and Charlie snapping, we were feeling really good about it. Went out there confident and it just didn't work out the way we wanted it to.”

Browns coach Hue Jackson thought the Steelers were offside and Gonzalez seemed to agree.

"I would like to see the play because I thought someone was offside," Jackson said. "The ball did not get up. The trajectory of the ball was kind of low."

Gonzalez said, "They were there, definitely, really quick, so, yeah, I kind of got that vibe."

Steelers kicker Chris Boswell also missed a game-winning overtime attempt of 42 yards, which sailed wide left in the east end with 1:44 left.
