The Steelers and Browns will square off in a game that will prove to be a pivotal season finale for Pittsburgh. Here are our predictions and how to catch the game.
There probably aren’t many fans who thought we will be on the edge of our seats for the Pittsburgh Steelers 2022 season finale. Entering the bye week, hope was diminished as Mike Tomlin’s squad sat on a 2-6 record. Now at 8-8, they have a real shot at making the playoffs if just three things go their way in Week 18.
The Cleveland Browns have already been eliminated from playoff contention and don’t have nearly as much to play for this week (other than the enjoyment of shattering the hopes and dreams of the Steelers). Still, that won’t make this game a walk in the park for Pittsburgh.
This could be the last game of the season for the black and gold and there’s a lot on the line. Here’s how to catch the Steelers vs Browns in Week 18.

Steelers v Browns Kickoff Time and Location
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns are scheduled to kick off at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh. Even if Mike Tomlin’s team made the post-season, they won’t be playing another game in Pittsburgh until next August during the 2023 preseason.
Steelers vs Browns Predictions
Oddsmakers seem to think that this could be a pretty tight contest, and it’s not hard to understand why. The Browns got the best of the Steelers the first time around, and that was without quarterback Deshaun Watson.
In their second meeting of the 2022 season, Pittsburgh is red hot since their bye while the Browns haven’t won more than two consecutive games all season. Mike Tomlin is going to do everything in his power to fire up his squad and avoid a losing-record season for the first time in his career as a professional head coach.
Though it will take some help from the Bills and Jets this week to pull off a miracle, Pittsburgh isn’t giving up on their playoff dreams, and we expect them to finish on a high note. We have the Steelers claiming a 20-17 victory over the Browns in the 2022 season finale.
Steelers vs Browns History
For almost the entirety of Ben Roethlisberger’s tenure, this was a matchup at the Pittsburgh dominated. At one point, the Steelers won 12 straight games against the Browns, according to The Football Database. However, the tide has shifted a bit more evenly in recent years. Tomlin is now 3-3 in his last three matchups against Cleveland — including a blowout loss in the playoffs following the 2020 season. Pittsburgh currently has an all-time record of 79-62-1 against this divisional opponent.
