Cleveland is still the worst team in the league with 0-10 and two consecutive blowout against the Cowboys (10-35 at home) and against the Ravens (28-7 in away). Two teams who played in last weeks just against the Steelers and i will explain in the prosecution the results.
Browns added in last weeks a strong defensive players like Collins from the Patriots and he started to produce quickly but he can save, alone, an entire defense or an entire team.
They also have the entire roster available with only Tramon Williams questionable for a knee problem (for me he’ll not play) but the situation is still not so good.
Steelers are in hunt for take a place in the playoff but actually they are in bad shape with 4 consecutive losses but we have to analyze the L. Against the Dolphins they lose for 30-15 but with Big Ben not at 100% and out for an injury during the game, against the Patriots (at home) they lose for 16-27 and it was out Big Ben, then they lose in away in a classic battle against the Ravens (21-14) but it was really a close and a tough game as usual between the two teams and the final was a L, very very close, against the Cowboys at home for 30-35 but it was a really tough game where Steelers had the lead with few time on the clock but they missed a decisive tackle on a central run of Elliott and allowed the decisive touchdown.
They still have some players out for today like DeAngelo Williams, Wheaton and Thomas, but they add tothe injury list also Heyward and Heyward-Bey. Grimble and Dangerfield are both questionable instead Green is active.
For me the Browns could stay for a while in this game but imho they can’t resist for so long to one of the best offense of the league and to a QB who can count on so many options like Bell, Brown, James, Rogers and Coates (who could be a big threat if Big Ben will try some deep-rocket).
So i want to take my shot on away side.
Pittsburgh -3,5 @1,52 (9-23)
