The Steelers will face off against the Browns in an attempt to boost their self-esteem from a four-game losing streak.
This trip to the factory of sadness couldn’t have come at a better time for Pittsburgh as they are just coming off of a heart breaker at home against the Cowboys. There will be some familiar faces returning this time as the team activated linebacker Bud Dupree on Saturday.

Unfortunately, the injuries just keep piling up and Cameron Heyward was officially placed in IR. Also placed on season-ending IR was receiver Markus Wheaton. With Wheaton in the last year of his rookie contract his future in Pittsburgh is pretty uncertain since he couldn’t compete this season.
All hope can’t be lost as long as the trio of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell are still intact and they surely are. Roethlisberger has won more games in Cleveland than just about any Browns quarterback has since the team returned in 1999.
This time they’ll face off against linebacker Jamie Collins, a player they faced previously when he was with the Patriots earlier this season. Another difference maker Pittsburgh will have to look out for is second-year nose tackle Danny Shelton. He leads the Browns defensive line with 41 tackles so far this season.
The Steelers defense will have to look to limit the impact that Jeannette, PA native Terrelle Pryor has on the game. Pryor previously burned the team for a 93-yard touchdown when he played for the Oakland Raiders in 2013.
No time like the present to turn this thing around and get back to winning football.
