This Sunday afternoon football game in Cleveland will be one of the most important games of this NFL season as these two AFC North rivals face off in the Midwest here on Sunday. Both of these teams come into this game with an identical record, and both of them will be looking for a massive victory to give themselves a path to the postseason this year. This will be the second meeting between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns this season when they met back in Pittsburgh earlier this season, Pittsburgh came away with the victory over their rivals. Now they will meet for the final time in the regular season with a lot more on the line this time around here on Sunday afternoon in Cleveland, Ohio.
Despite all the criticism about the Pittsburgh Steelers coming into this season, they have defied all the expectations and they sit in a perfect position to make a deep playoff run. They come into this game with six victories through their first nine games of the season and they will be looking to complete the season sweep of the Cleveland Browns with another quality performance here on Sunday afternoon. Pittsburgh sits in a position to potentially win the AFC North, as the winner of this game would likely establish themselves as the favorite within the division throughout the remainder of the regular season as well.
Pittsburgh does come into this game dealing with a plethora of injuries in the secondary that could hurt them throughout this game on Sunday. However, the Browns will also be starting a backup quarterback so both teams find themselves at a disadvantage in this one. The Steelers have built up plenty of momentum over the last two weeks after back-to-back victories over Tennessee and Green Bay and they will be looking for a third consecutive win here on Sunday afternoon in Cleveland. It would be a massive divisional victory and it would be huge for divisional tiebreakers heading into the final six weeks of the regular season as well as it would position Pittsburgh in second place of the AFC North division with only the Baltimore ravens in front of them.
