This will be the third time the two teams square off this season. The Steelers blew out the Browns 38-7 in Week 6, while Cleveland got a narrow 24-22 win last week against a Pittsburgh squad that sat most of its starters.
The Browns (11-5) are making their first playoff appearance since 2002, while the Steelers (12-4) are back in the postseason after not qualifying the past two years.
There is no love lost between the division rivals. The two teams had an on-field brawl after Cleveland defensive lineman Myles Garrett and Pittsburgh backup QB Mason Rudolph had a dust up in 2019 which led to Garrett being suspended for the rest of the season.
Steelers’ wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster added fuel to the fire by saying this about the Browns during the week:
“I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year. I think they’re nameless gray faces. They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day, I don’t know. The Browns is the Browns.”
