The Pittsburgh Steelers need a win on Sunday and a Baltimore Ravens loss to clinch the AFC North and a spot in the playoffs. Pittsburgh fans around the country will be cheering for Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns to help make their playoff hopes happen.

As the Steelers take the field on Sunday, the hope star wide receiver Antonio Brown will be there. However, Brown is questionable for the game as he undergoes tests for his knee.

According to Ian Rapoport, Brown didn't practice for the third-straight day.

Losing Brown would be a significant blow for the Steelers offense. The star wide receiver had a "down" year, but still racked up over 100 catches and nearly 1,300 yards - thanks in large part to a dominant performance against the New Orleans Saints where he hauled in 14 catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns.

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