Steelers vs. Browns preview:

Where to being with the Steelers? After a promising 4-1 start to the season that looked like the Steelers were Super Bowl contenders, Pittsburgh has lost four in a row and now sit below .500 on the season. With a favorable schedule the rest of the way, the Steelers still have a chance to make the playoffs, but they need to start playing better immediately, starting with the game against Cleveland.

The Browns are 0-10 on the season. The Browns are in last place in the NFL, and are in line for the first overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. In Hue Jackson’s first year as the head coach of the Browns, Cleveland has fought hard in most games, but just don’t have the talent to compete. Cleveland was blown out against the Ravens last week and faces a tough task against a very good Steelers offense.

The Steelers and Browns have played each other 128 times, with the Steelers holding a 68-58 advantage in the regular season. The Steelers lead the playoff contests 2-0.

Steelers vs. Browns prediction:

Despite having one of the best running backs in the NFL, the Steelers average just 90 yards per game on the ground. The good thing for Pittsburgh? Cleveland gives up 143 rushing yards per game.

Another bad stat for Cleveland fans? Ben Roethlisberger is 19-2 against the Browns.

The Steelers are the better team and need to find a win. A dangerous combination for Cleveland. Pittsburgh big.

Steelers 38, Cleveland 13
