The Steelers are scheduled to host the Browns in a rematch battle to keep Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes alive.
Although Pittsburgh claimed a 15-10 victory in Cleveland during Week 8, the teams will rematch in their second-to-last game of the regular season.
Coming off a 36-10 loss to the Chiefs last week, Pittsburgh will look to earn a victory at home that will keep the Steelers in the playoff hunt. However, since the Raiders recorded a 23-20 win against the Colts on Sunday, Pittsburgh’s odds to make the postseason have dropped even lower to about four percent, according to ESPN.
Not only are the Steelers fighting to stay alive in the playoff race, but veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is also most likely competing in his last home game for the Steelers. While he hasn’t officially confirmed the retirement rumors, he recently shared his thoughts on his future with the NFL.
On the other hand, Baker Mayfield will lead the Browns in an effort to earn a final regular-season win on the road. After he threw four interceptions during Cleveland’s 24-22 loss to the Packers last week, Mayfield will attempt to help end the Browns’ two-game losing streak.
Running back Nick Chubb dominated Cleveland’s offense last week and led with 126 rushing yards with one score, and 58 receiving yards. He will likely make several plays against the Steelers’ defense, which allowed 254 passing yards and 127 rushing yards against the Chiefs.
