AFC North remains tight as the Steelers try their best to hang on

Pittsburgh somehow continues to find ways of winning ball games, even though they have little reason to get that result. Better lucky than good is how the old saying goes and this team has taken that to heart. They have been struggling with injuries lately, which has caused their opportunistic defense to get rattled some the past couple of weeks.

Despite the injuries, turnovers continue to be found for the Steelers defense. Pittsburgh's offense continues to be a bad passing group, but their running game has gotten much better over the past couple of weeks. They will have another big task in front of them as they go up against the Browns. They have a strong defensive front and can stop a lot of offenses.

Myles Garrett is going to be a handful this week as he is every week in the NFL. He has a lot of quality friends up front in Cleveland who can also help shut down the rushing attack by opposing offenses. If the Steelers cannot get their running game going like they have over the past several weeks, then they will be in trouble. Kenny Pickett cannot move the ball down the field by himself.

Pittsburgh is the away team in this one and they will have to find ways to stay in this game. They need to play their game to have any chance of winning any contest from here on out. The defense needs to cause a couple of turnovers, and the offense has to capitalize off that. Keep the game tight and hope that you end up on the winning side at the end.
