The Cleveland Browns face their first AFC North Division adversary eight weeks into the 2021 NFL regular season, and it’s a big one – Browns vs. Steelers.
Each side had some time to prepare for the game. In Week 7, the Steelers (3-3) had a bye. Because their Week 7 game occurred on a Thursday night, the Browns (4-3) haven’t played since Oct. 21. They won 17-14 against Denver, with backup quarterback Case Keenum taking over for the injured Baker Mayfield.
Mayfield will return to the starting lineup after seeming to be out for this game as well.
This might be Ben Roethlisberger’s last game in Cleveland for the Steelers, who have won two straight after a 1-3 start.
