The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to make it three wins in a row Sunday when they head to Cleveland to take on the division rival Browns.
For a team looking to get firmly back into the playoff chance, there could be no better opponent on the schedule for the black-and-gold. That’s especially true for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
The Steelers are 15-1 all-time against their longtime rivals when Roethlisberger is under center, with the quarterback completing 62.5 percent of his passes. Roethlisberger hasn’t thrown an interception at FirstEnergy Stadium since 2006.
Coming off his best game of the season, earning himself AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, the Steelers will need a repeat performance from Big Ben, going against one of the better defenses in the NFL.
Rarely does a matchup between 4-6 teams carry major implications like this game does.
The winner likely stays in the race for another week while the loser is likely all done.
Who has the edge?
