Betting on the Browns Steelers NFL playoffs could not be easier. The Cleveland Browns will be looking for their first playoff win since 1995 when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wildcard Round of the AFC playoffs on Sunday night. The game will be played at Heinz Field and is scheduled to begin at 8:15 PM. ET.
Cleveland Browns Preview:
The Browns made it into the playoffs after defeating the Steelers in their final game of the regular season. However, the Steelers rested their starters for that game and will face a tougher challenge this time around.
Cleveland played well offensively during the season, averaging 25.4 points per game. They averaged 221.2 passing yards and 148.4 rushing yards per game.
Baker Mayfield completed 62.8 percent of his passes for 3,563 yards, 26 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Nick Chubb led the team with 1,067 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns, while Jarvis Landry led the team with 840 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
The Browns weren’t as good defensively, giving up 26.2 points per game. They gave up 22 points in their last game and will need another good defensive performance if they want to get the win.
Pittsburgh Steelers Preview:
The Steelers won their first 11 games but they struggled down the stretch, losing four of their last five games. With the team hoping to make it to the Super Bowl this season, they will have to play better than they have over the past month if they want to move on to the next round.
