The Pittsburgh Steelers need a little help from a division-rival to sneak into the playoffs this year. Pittsburgh needs the Cleveland Browns to take down the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon and needs a win over the Cincinnati Benglas to win the AFC North.

After a loss to the New Orleans Saints last weekend, the Steelers are facing a long offseason. The team received some tough injury news earlier this week as star wide receiver Antonio Brown showed up on the injury report with a sore knee.

According to Steelers reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala, Brown missed practice the past two days, but his teammates expect him to play.

Brown dominated the Saints on Sunday despite the team's loss. He had easily his best game of the season as he racked up 185 yards on 14 catches - two of which went for touchdowns.

If Brown is unable to go, Juju Smith-Schuster and James Washington would be in line for an increased workload.
