Steelers schedule: 3 most exciting matchups in the 2021 NFL season
By Sam Ouhaj
Week 8: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns
Sunday, October 31st at 1:00 PM
After the Browns humiliated Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs, this game will be one to remember. While the Steelers have always picked on the Browns, they have made a name for themselves over the last couple of years and should not be taken lightly. We remember last year when JuJu Smith-Schuster stated, “The Browns is the Browns,” and how that blew up all over social media.
If the Steelers are going to win this game, they will need to keep a low profile the week before and focus on taking down a division rival. I am excited to see if Pittsburgh’s offense can go against Cleveland’s defense. Not only do they have a top defensive unit, but the Steelers’ offense was underwhelming during the last season. If Ben and JuJu can redeem themselves for their wildcard performance, I am almost certain they will win this game. Also during Week 8, we will see how Steelers’ First-round pick, Najee Harris, has looked through the first half which is exciting and perhaps he could be the missing link in making this offense explosive.
The Steelers will be coming off a goodbye when they face the Browns, giving them plenty of time to rest up and reclaim their title as the best team in the AFC North.
