Fans couldn't be more anxious to put this Week 1 debacle in the past. During the season-opener, the Pittsburgh Steelers were humiliated by the San Francisco 49ers despite playing at Acrisure Stadium. Now Mike Tomlin's team will have the opportunity to write their wrongs with their second straight home game in Week 2.
After an interesting slate of games on Sunday, the Steelers will be lacing up to host the Cleveland Browns as Pittsburgh looks to avoid a dreaded 0-2 start to the season. The Steelers have started a season just 0-2 twice during the first 16 years of Tomlin's tenure as head coach, and they missed the playoffs both times.
The Browns are off to a red-hot start after pummeling the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. Cleveland's defense held Joe Burrow to just 14 completions on 31 passes for a mere 82 yards. This equated to just 2.6 yards per attempt and a disgusting QBR of 20.3, per ESPN stats.
Now Kenny Pickett will look to avoid being the second straight victim of Jim Schwartz's new defense in Cleveland, as talented pass rushers like Myles Garrett and Za'Darius Smith will be out for more blood. This promises to be an exciting AFC North matchup that you won't want to miss.
What time is the Steelers game tonight?
The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football tonight at 8:15 p.m. Eastern Time. This contest will be a national broadcast on ABC with Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Lisa Salters calling the game. Those planning on streaming the game can do so with a subscription to YouTube TV or NFL+. However, we recommend using FuboTV.
The Steelers and Browns aren't the only Monday night game this week. An hour before kickoff Pittsburgh, the Carolina Panthers, and New Orleans Saints will be underway at 7:15 p.m. Eastern Time at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. This game will be played on ESPN.
With two games to choose from on Monday Night Football starting only an hour apart, many fans will be flipping back and forth between the two. Steelers fans will have the luxury of watching the first hour of the Saints vs. Panthers game if they choose before flipping back over to ABC at 8:15 p.m. ET for the Steelers vs. Browns game in Week 2.
