It’s all up for grabs, still, in the AFC North and it doesn’t get much bigger than this when the 6-3 Cleveland Browns host the 6-3 Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon.
Pittsburgh has a slight edge for second place in the division behind the 8-3 Baltimore Ravens thanks to a victory over Cleveland earlier this season. But Sunday’s winner gets the No. 2 spot all to themselves for at least one week.
Steelers (6-3) vs. Browns (6-3) Week 11: How to watch
- Date: Sunday, November 19
- Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
- Venue: Cleveland Browns Stadium, Cleveland, OH
- TV: CBS
- Streaming: Paramount+
Injuries have gutted the Browns heading into Week 11, most notably the loss of starting quarterback Deshaun Watson for the remainder of the 2023 campaign. Now they turn to rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson, a fifth-round pick out of UCLA, to keep the Dawg Pound in playoff contention.
But while losing a starting quarterback is a brutal blow for plenty of teams (just look at the Giants and Jets), the Browns are in no way out of the equation for the AFC North. They boast an imposing run game behind Nick Chubb and a defense that has allowed the fourth-fewest points in the NFL this season.
It’s a big test for Kenny Pickett and a Steelers offense that hasn’t scored more than 20 points in its last five games.
Meanwhile, a Steelers defense that is a top-10 unit in the NFL in fewest points allowed this season has yielded the 10th-most rushing yards, which could spell a big day for Chubb if Cleveland keepers its offense simple in order to keep the passing game of Thompson-Robinson a viable option.
