The Cleveland Browns are once again searching for that elusive first win this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers on a cold day in Cleveland.
It is absolutely freezing in downtown Cleveland today, but it’s perfect football weather for two teams in much different positions.
The Cleveland Browns are still searching for a win, while the Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping for an easy win to get back to the .500 mark.
FirstEnergy Stadium will likely be filled with a majority of Steelers fans, meaning nothing would be better than a Browns victory. The team isn’t dealing with any major injuries this week, as seen in the inactive list.
Tramon Williams is the only notable name on that list, but Joe Haden and Jamar Taylor are expected to be at full health. Haden will be the key player to watch Sunday, as he will have the impossible task of covering Antonio Brown. Even giving up one touchdown to Brown would be considered a success based on how the secondary has been playing all season.
Hue Jackson’s job is allegedly safe, but his team is in grave danger of going 0-16 this season. As we have been saying the past few weeks, this game may be the best chance at a win. Because as the losses continue to pile up, the confidence falls too low for success to happen against contending teams.
It is a rivalry game, which means Browns fans will be extra vocal about the Browns picking up a win over the hated Steelers. To keep the conversation going, be sure to comment on this post to share your thoughts during what will hopefully be a great game for the Browns. It is a longshot, but we can hope, right?
