Heinz Field - 1:00 PM EST
Try this on for size... The Cleveland Browns, alone in 2nd place in the AFC North with a 5-3 record to go along with a 3 game winning streak, travel to Heinz field this weekend to take on the Steelers sitting atop of the North with a one game lead. That just seems odd, especially to see the Browns with a winning record. However, flash back to week one when the Steelers opened their season in Cleveland with a dominating performance that sent Frye to Seattle the following week! I will give the Browns credit though because they have bounced back and been able to pull a couple of victories out of their ass.
The Browns defense is HORRIBLE and is ranked dead last in the league! If they didn't have an offense that could put points on the board their record would probably be more like 2-6 or possibly 3-5. Bottom line is, you put the Browns up against a defense like the Steelers and it's a whole different Browns team becasue they are far from being anything like the Rams when they were labled "The Greatest Show on Turf", plus did I mention this game is in Pittsburgh where the Steelers have completely enialated their opponents this season!
Look for the Steelers to run early and to run often! Then when the Browns least expect it, Ben will go with that play action fake and continue to add to his, second best in the league, 20 TD passes on the year! The Steelers are almost a complete team from top to bottom with the exception of the kick off coverage team. They have been suspect all year and will give up at least one big return a game. Still though, that one big return won't be enough for the Browns to pull another one out of their ass!
Join us this Sunday here in the gameday thread as we talk about the game and cheer our Steelers to a victory!!!!
