The Pittsburgh Steelers face the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 9. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Last year, the Browns went 0-16, but there’s no doubt that the worst loss handed to them came in Week 17 against the Steelers. With nothing to play for, Pittsburgh rested their starters which gave the Browns their best shot at avoiding the dreaded 0-16 record.
Down four with time left for a final drive, quarterback DeShone Kizer started moving the ball down the field. Then a fourth-down play ended with a catchable pass from Kizer going through the hands of receiver Corey Coleman and a winless season was in the books.
Kizer, Coleman, and many others won’t be in this one since Cleveland revamped their entire roster. As for Pittsburgh, they’re nearly at full strength — although the one absence is a big one.
Running back Le’Veon Bell is holding out for a new contract and has yet to report to the team. Even without him, they have a strong offense with Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown leading the way.
It should be a hard fought game, and it could get ugly considering the ugly weather that’s on the way to the Land.
The Browns hope that they can start to make some noise in the AFC North this season. The best way to do so would be to notch a victory over the defending division champions.
