    Steelers Notebook: Regular season has familiar finish against familiar foe

    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.

    Playoff scenerio!

    I don't even want to think about this but if we lose to Cleveland and Balt., Jets, Colts and KC win do we have to go to KC or Indy?

    We will not lose. We know that the Browns want to beat us very badly and it would cap off their year to beat us.

    We have a very fresh memory of last year and I have confidence that we will win the game. But it will be a struggle because they want to win and Mangini wants to save his job. And a win over us just may save his job.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Last time Steelers beat browns in their last game of the season was in 08. Score, 31-0. And with that said, we went on to win the Super Bowl.

    Well Cleveland, if you had beat the Ravens, it wouldn't have to be this way, but now the Steelers are forced to come in there and decimate you.

    The Browns would love nothing more than to spoil our postseason 2 seed plans, so it won't be a pushover game. McCoy made some plays last time we played them so I expect them to throw caution to the wind like they did today and pull out all the stops.

    All game are won on the field.The steelers are going to play as if it's their first playoff game.The Browns are going to be playing their Superbowl.This game ,by no means,is going to be a pushover.
    Area in which the steelers have to be careful.
    1...............special teams,watch out for some long returns by Cribbs

    2...............defensive pass interference penalties

    3...............offensive holding penalties

    The steeler do this , we win

    This would be a game where traditionally the Steelers would walk in thinking they are going to win and only show up in the 2nd half it they started losing. So far Tomlin has been able to keep these guys focused and on track, which is great! Especially once they got the lead in the AFC North. Games after that are ones that they lost last year and are winning this year.

    There is NO reason we should lose this game, not after working this hard to get where we are right now, with so much on the line.
