First of all, the Browns played without as many starters as the Steelers in week 17, given the COVID issues on defense. 3 DBs and 2LBs were out, plus Sheldon Richardson. So we had 5 defensive starters. Steelers sat a few key guys but that "JV" stuff is nonsense.After witnessing the game Sunday I'd be shocked if the Browns won this week. Beat the Steeler JVs by 2 points when the Browns were playing for their playoff lives. There was a post on the Browns thread that said Stefanski was playing close to the vest because he anticipated the rematch and didn't want to tip his hand. I call BS on that. This is an organization that hasn't been to the playoffs since most of their players were in grade school. Even the running game wasn't their usual atrocious self. Except for 1 bad pick Mason was decent. I'm not saying it'll be easy like the 1st matchup, but this is a game that's completely winnable.
Steelers are anywhere from 3.5 to 6 point favorites this week, Browns still missing several key guys, Vernon just tore Achilles last week so another defensive starter is out. Pretty bold of you to call this game "winnable". and now Stefanski, Bitonio, and 2 assistant coaches have COVID. If my Browns win it will be a miracle.
