18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Plays on Monday Night Football vs. Cleveland Browns
At 7-7-1, the Pittsburgh Steelers can still finish the season with a winning record this season despite the struggles they have had. Consistency has been an issue for them, especially on defense as the season went on.
The Chargers and Bengals each dropped 41 on them whereas the Vikings and Chiefs both scored 36. Now, they host the Cleveland Browns, a team they held to just 10 in their earlier meeting.
An added element in this one is that Ben Roethlisberger has said it could be his final home game with the Steelers, and that’s likely going to be the case. He’s been able to dominate the Browns for much of his career and looks to do so one last time.
17. Miami Dolphins
Entering Week 17, the Miami Dolphins had won seven games in a row but outside of the Baltimore Ravens earlier in the year, none of those wins came against winning franchises. That made Sunday real interesting as they were on the road facing the Tennessee Titans — and they got punched in the mouth.
Tennessee won it going away, 34-3 as the Dolphins had no answer for the ground game. D’Onte Foreman gashed them for 132 yards and they had 198 with two touchdowns as a team.
Tua Tagovailoa ended with 205 yards on 18-of-38 passing with no touchdowns and a pick as their offense just never got rolling. It was a great run but ended with a thud.
