Pittsburgh Steelers fans can't wait to put the ugly Week 1 loss in the rearview mirror. In their season-opener, Mike Tomlin's team took a beating against a talented 49ers squad in what ultimately turned out to be a 30-7 blowout. Now Pittsburgh will look for redemption against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

Cleveland is coming off an impressive win against the Cincinnati Bengals in which the Browns' defense swallowed up QB Joe Burrow to allow just 3 points. The Steelers will certainly have their work cut out for them this week, and they know that they can't afford to fall 2 games behind Cleveland in the AFC North divisional race.

Sadly, the Steelers will have to weather the storm without Diontae Johnson and Cameron Heyward. Johnson suffered a hamstring injury during the loss to the 49ers, while Cameron Heyward needs to have surgery to repair a torn groin muscle.

Pittsburgh is already facing some adversity and it's time for young players to step up to the plate. Their opportunity to rebound starts on Monday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. Here's everything you need to know.

Steelers vs. Browns Game Time:

The Steelers play during the early slate more often than not this year, but they do get several primetime games this year --the first of which comes in Week 2. This week, the Steelers will face the Browns on Monday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. Eastern Time on September 18th.

Steelers vs. Browns Location:

For the second straight week, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be playing at home, which means the Browns are coming to Acrisure Stadium under the lights for Monday Night Football. This should be a packed stadium for primetime action. Following Week 2, the Steelers will have back-to-back road games against the Raiders and Texans.

Steelers vs. Browns Streaming and TV:

Monday Night Football will obviously be the national broadcast. This week, the Steelers vs. Browns game will be broadcast on ABC across the country. For those looking to stream the game, you can do so with a subscription to NFL+ or YouTube TV, but we recommend using FuboTV.

Steelers vs. Browns Odds:

The Pittsburgh Steelers open the week as 2-point underdogs on their own turf against the Cleveland Browns, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook. Pittsburgh has a moneyline of +105, while the over/under point total for the game is currently set at 39.5.

What to watch for in Steelers vs. Browns game:

Without Diontae Johnson or Cameron Heyward to aid them, the Pittsburgh Steelers will look to young players like WR Calvin Austin, DT Keeanu Benton, and DL Demarvin Leal to fill the void. Mike Tomlin's team gets a difficult test this week.

Despite their history of success against the Browns and playing in primetime games, the Browns could have the best defense we have seen in quite some time under the direction of new defensive coordinator, Jim Schwarts. We will look to see if Pittsburgh's offensive tackles can hold up against what is expected to be one of the best pass-rush duos in the league with Myles Garrett and Za'Darius Smith.

All eyes will be on Steelers QB Kenny Pickett this game as he looks to rebound from a forgettable performance in Week 1. Last week, Joe Burrow was only able to put up 82 passing yards and just 2.6 yards per attempt against Cleveland to go with a dismal 20.3 QBR, per ESPN stats. Pickett will need to look much better in Week 2 if his team is to come away with a win on Monday Night Football and avoid falling to 0-2 on the season.
