The Browns and Steelers meet on “Monday Night Football” to try to keep their playoff chances alive. Both teams have seven victories heading into the match.
Both teams are coming off heartbreaking losses in Week 16. The Browns lost a close game 24-22 to the Packers over Christmas. The Steelers lost 36-10 to the best team in the AFC, the Chiefs. Both opponents secured their place in the playoffs because of these victories.
The Steelers won the first meeting of the year of this rivalry, winning 15-10 on October 31.
For the Steelers to make the playoffs, they need to win their last two games against the Browns and Ravens, and they need current AFC North leader the Bengals to lose their next two games to the Chiefs and Browns.
Monday night’s game is potentially Ben Roethlisberger’s last start in Pittsburgh, as retirement rumors continue to circulate around the 39-year-old quarterback. Roethlisberger is 25-3-1 over the Browns.
