The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to enter Week 6 against their first divisional opponent in 2020, the Cleveland Browns.
I have to say, I wasn’t sure that the Pittsburgh Steelers would go undefeated in their first quarter of 2020. I was worried about the immense amount of talent, even though it is very young and raw, in Denver. I also saw what Tennessee was capable of doing in the 2019 postseason and I thought that those would be close games.
Fortunately for Pittsburgh, Denver had an injury issue that extended into their match up with our Steelers. Tennessee, meanwhile, had their own health concerns with a small Covid-19 outbreak within the organization.
That set up Pittsburgh to have a quite manageable set of matchups throughout the first quarter of the season and it was nice to see them take advantage of the opportunity. Let it be known: Pittsburgh is not losing the games they should win this year. At least for the start of the season, Mike Tomlin’s team has shown up and taken care of business.
This matchup with Cleveland will field the most talented squad our Pittsburgh Steelers have seen this year. The Browns got embarrassed in Week 1 against Baltimore, but they have rebounded nicely, and as a team is looking like they can match up well against most teams in the league.
The Steelers, however, are not most teams in the league and I do expect this to be a close game. There are some things everyone should know going into this game:
