Steelers travel to Cleveland for rivalry

Steelers travel to Cleveland for rivalry

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel down the road to take on the Cleveland Browns this Sunday. The game is to kickoff at 1pm at Cleveland Browns Stadium, and will feature two AFC North rivals. The rivalry is not what it once was, but the hate these two teams have for one another is still strong. The Browns and Steelers have gone in two separate directions to this point in the year, but the Browns have been no pushover for teams. Pittsburgh is also on their third quarterback, which should not help.

The Steelers have a lot riding on Sunday’s game after losing a divisional game one week earlier to the Ravens. The Steelers are 6-4 to this point as they chase the wildcard spot. They will have to beat big odds to find the playoffs as their starting quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, will be out for at least a couple more weeks. They also had backup Byron Leftwich go down with a rib injury last week. This will leave veteran Charlie Batch to handle the snaps Sunday.

The Browns enter the game with a 2-8 record, but have fought hard in each and every game. They feel it is just a matter of time before they win, and would hope for nothing more then a victory over Pittsburgh to do so. Last week, they fell in overtime to the Cowboys in Dallas. This certainly will be a game many will have their eyes on as Steeler nation hopes the Browns do not end their season.
