The Browns enter this weekend’s matchup sporting a 2-4-1 record that pegs them as the worst team in the AFC North. Right now the division is led by the 3-2-1 Steelers, who are followed by the Bengals and Ravens, both of whom are 4-3 this season. With that in mind, Cleveland can place themselves in the AFC North conversation with a massive upset of Pittsburgh this Sunday. Unfortunately for Cleveland, they don’t bring much momentum into this contest seeing as how they lost the last two games consecutively. However, Cleveland did manage to tie against Pittsburgh earlier this season. With a more capable and dynamic quarterback at the helm, is it so far-fetched to imagine Cleveland getting the upset on Sunday? The football betting online odds certainly seem to think so.
Players to Watch: Baker Mayfield (1,291 passing yards, 6 TD, 5 INT), Carlos Hyde (382 rushing yards, 5 TD, 1 F), and Jarvis Landry (489 receiving yards, 2 TD, 41 REC).
The Steelers enter this Week 8 AFC North rivalry sporting a 3-2-1 record that ranks them as the best team in the AFC North. As aforementioned, Pittsburgh has some fierce competition for the lead in the division. Having said that, it’s obvious that a win over Cleveland would be a lifesaver for the Steelers. Fortunately, they’re playing much better football than they were in their season opener. On top of that, Le’Veon Bell is expected to make his return to the organization. However, that could end up biting the Steelers in the rear considering how much drama came out of that locker room early on. Most of the Steelers’ organization ripped into Bell simply because he was standing up for what he believed in. Ultimately the Steelers are now a much more talented team, but that drama could end up playing a role on the field this weekend.
Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger (2,033 passing yards, 12 TD, 6 INT), James Conner (453 rushing yards, 7 TD, 2 F), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (561 receiving yards, 2 TD, 42 REC).
