AFC North standings: Steelers need a win in Week 8 to leapfrog Browns
Cleveland Browns (4-3) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3), Sunday at 1 P.M. ET
The Browns stay at home as they host the Pittsburgh Steelers, in what should be a very publicized game as it is the first time they will clash since the playoff matchup last year. The home club, Cleveland, was victorious when these two last met, but it could be a different story this time around.
Cleveland heads into this game with a bunch of injuries and those could play a major factor in this game. It might not have mattered as much against the Denver Broncos last week, but Pittsburgh is more talented. The injury report for the Browns this week could be just as important as the game itself.
It sounds like Baker Mayfield might not be back from his shoulder injury just yet, as the damage is a little more than the Cleveland brass would hope for. This is always a physical game, and as the AFC North is starting to ramp up, this game is going to be huge for both sides.
This week eight matchup will have huge implications going forward. The Steelers need to win so they go above 500, while the Browns need to get their first divisional win and build up some victories without major players in the lineup.
