The Pittsburgh Steelers went 2-1 on their latest three-game homestand to improve to 6-3 on the season. This week Pittsburgh gets back on the road for a huge AFC North showdown with the 6-3 Cleveland Browns.
The oddsmakers at BetMGM have the Steelers as four-point underdogs after the Browns pulled off a huge 33-31 win over the Baltimore Ravens last week. The win helps the Steelers in the standings as Pittsburgh currently has a win over both the Browns and Ravens.
For Cleveland, much will depend on the health of quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson injured his ankle against the Ravens but was only out of the game briefly. Nevertheless, reports indicate the team is going to run some tests on the injured ankle given the injury issues Watson has had this season and aren’t going to commit to whether or not he can play this week.
The Steelers and Browns squared off in Week Two of the season with Pittsburgh getting the 26-22 win. The Steelers offense was completely ineffective and depended on an injury to Browns running back Nick Chubb and two defensive touchdowns to secure the win.
