What is up everyone it’s your boy Lavoie here. I am running a serious cold streak right now thanks a lot to the Chargers.
Didn’t take my own advice about their streaky nature and I got buried. I totally get it if you fade this pick lol.
But don’t! We are going to get back on track with this one in Pittsburgh, with the above info in mind let’s get after it.
This game can either be the biggest game of the season for the Browns, or can mean absolutely nothing depending on what happens Sunday. So let’s quickly run down the scenario.
On Sunday, the Ravens play host to the Los Angeles Rams, and the Bengals take on the visiting Chiefs at Paul Brown Stadium.
If both the Ravens and Bengals lose these games, and the Browns win this one Monday, then the following week 18 matchup between them and the Bengals would be for the division.
Now if this scenario does not happen, then the Browns aren’t out just yet but very unlikely they’ll grab a wild card spot. So let’s take a look at why the Browns have gotten themselves into this pickle.
The Browns coming into this season were, on paper at least, one of the scariest and most well rounded rosters. After winning a playoff game last season for the first time in god knows how long, most people expected this team to take another step forward with all of their talent.
They have really dropped the ball all season long. In my humble opinion I think a lot of the blame lands on Bakers shoulders, but to be fair the poor guy has been battling an incredibly poor bill of health so hats off to him.
With that said when he came back after missing a couple games this year he looked much healthier and rested, wasn’t limping in and out of the huddle etc.
Hunt is still not practicing due to his ankle injury so keep an eye on the injury report.
The Steelers are also a pretty huge disappointment this season. Again, a pretty talented roster but with an ageing quarterback who is beyond his prime to put it nicely, and a very bad offensive line.
They have also been mired in a bit of wide receiver controversy that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing in Pittsburgh with Chase Claypool being the latest segment of this phenomenon.

I think we’re looking at a close game here where the Browns win but the Steelers cover. The Browns have had a really difficult time this season finishing games when they do win even.
Definitely keep in mind whatever happens in the games Sunday that have implications for the Browns and also the injury reports!
