The Cleveland Browns finally have entered the win column.
They’ll look to close this season out with an upset win in their finale when they head into Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Tears were in Joe Thomas’ eyes as the Cleveland Browns earned their first victory of the season in a win over the Chargers last week.
Leading by just 3, the Browns saw the Chargers miss a field goal as time expired as the First Energy Stadium crowd erupted with joy as the Browns improved to 1-14 on the season.
With that, the Browns still control their own destiny for the first pick in next year’s draft.
With the 49ers defeating the Rams last week, it will take a Browns loss here to secure that first spot.
However, don’t tell them that as winning over Pittsburgh here would be huge for this team’s mentality. Cleveland will likely have to turn to someone other than Robert Griffin III, as he suffered a concussion in last weeks win.
With him out, QB Cody Kessler will likely get the nod.
The Pittsburgh Steelers had some dramatics of their own last week, as they clinched the AFC North once again with a touchdown as just 9 seconds remained in the game against the Ravens.
The win was absolutely huge in the pure fact that a loss would have put them in 2nd place and not allowed them to control their own destiny.
Ben Roethlisberger has been extremely efficient in the 2nd half of the season, as the Steelers have compiled 6 straight wins. Despite already clinching a spot in the postseason, Pittsburgh will start their main guys here against Cleveland.
For the Steelers, they’ll just have to do what they did last time these two teams met, as they dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.
With Kessler starting, the Steelers will likely try to put a lot of pressure on the Browns early on and knock him around.
Getting him rattled early is a huge key as he hasn’t been good this season.
