Well, here it is: The most important game of the season.

There may be other important games to come this year... but not if we don't win this one.

Win, and we soldier on. Lose, and I think the gap in the division becomes too wide to overcome.

I don't have a strong feel one way or the other, but I expect a battle. The Browns have a propensity for going for it on 4th down in stupid situations. Cleveland has left a lot of crucial points on the field this year, foregoing short field goal attempts multiple times in multiple games, coming away empty.

If they do this today, we win. Here's hoping Ben gets win #25 over Cleveland today.

Prediction: Steelers 23, Browns 20
Go, Steelers!

Edmunds = spectator.

Although as soon as I said that, he made a good run stopping tackle.  Laugh

Steelers playing really soft coverage right now. Guys wide open. Browns have marched right down the field, first and goal.

Great work on the sack! Cam and TJ!!! That was big.

When the Browns have lost this year, it's because they can't finish drives. Good job stiffening near the goal line.

I thought Ben had 24 wins vs. Cleveland? They said 23.

I think they left out the game where he didn't start, then came off the bench early and won it.

Nice Pat - there was a ton of line movement on both sides.

I like our Rookie TE

Nice. Freiermuth is really growing on me. Very solid, week in, week out.

Freiermuth is getting Juju's throws. This bodes well for us/

Was anyone targeted for a pass on that drive other than Freiermuth?

I just checked, and every pass was in Freiermuth's direction. Odd.
