Week 12: Cleveland Browns

1:00PM, CBS


As we've discussed, the Steelers aren't dead yet. If they finish the season strong (that is, basically win out), they could find themselves playing football in January. LaMarr Woodley, Brett Keisel, and Shamarko Thomas are all inactive for today's game. In the big picture, if the Steelers want to make the playoffs, they have to beat the Cleveland Browns. Not just because playoff teams should beat Cleveland, but because the Browns are in the same boat as the Steelers with a 4-6 record in the putrid AFC North. It's a pivotal game for both teams. A win keeps the dream alive, a loss likely spells the end.
