It will be a familiar ending to the regular season for the Steelers Jan. 2 in Cleveland.

For the ninth time since 1969, the Steelers and Browns will play in the regular-season finale. But for only the second time in that span, the game will be in Cleveland.

The last time the Steelers visited Cleveland for a regular-season finale was 1983, a 30-17 loss at Municipal Stadium. The Steelers played host to the Browns in 2008, '01, 1993, '92, '91, '87, '83 and '82. The Steelers won every home game except the one in '87.

The Steelers' last visit to Cleveland was not a good one. The Browns beat the Steelers, 13-6, last Dec. 10. It was the fifth of five consecutive losses in November and early December. The Steelers won their final three games against Green Bay, Baltimore and Miami to finish 9-7, but did not make the playoffs.

The Steelers all-time record against the Browns is 61-56. They are 22-35 in Cleveland.
