NFL Playoffs 2021: Browns head to Pittsburgh to face Big Ben and the Steelers

PITTSBURGH, PA –  The Cleveland Browns are in the playoffs.  That was not a typo.  It’s the first time the Browns have made the playoffs since 202, when they also played the Steelers.  In that game, they lost 36-33.  Tommy Maddox led the Steelers in that game

Fast forward nearly two decades later and there are so many question marks surrounding this Cleveland team who made it to the playoffs for the first time in 18 years.

“We know HC Stefanski will not be on the field due to Covid issues but how many other players will be affected and how will this young Browns team react without practicing must this week at all,” said Joe Wiz, one of the nation’s top sports betting analysts.

The Steelers started out the season 11-0 but have lost 4 of their last 5 games and still looking for consistency. When these two teams met in a meaningful game back on Oct 18, the Steelers dominated 38-7 here at Heinz Field.

If QB Baker Mayfield can play an error-free game and the Browns can establish a rushing attack with Nick Chubb, this game can be a lot closer than October and more similar to last week’s Score.
