CLE +3 @ PIT O/U 43.5
A Monday Night matchup of 2 teams hooked up to a respirator fighting for their playoff lives. Both are technically still alive but it isn’t looking good for either realistically. The loser will be eliminated & the winner will need a week 18 win & a miracle. Cleveland is a team that was hit hard by covid dropping their last 2 by a total of 4 points. Baker Mayfield returned last week from the covid list & they may want him to return after tossing 4 INTs in a 22-24 loss to Green Bay. Mike Tomlin has never had a losing season as HC of the Pittsburgh Steelers & a win tonight will ensure that record stays intact. Pittsburgh took the 1st meeting in Cleveland 15-10. According to The Football Database Cleveland hasn’t won a regular season meeting in Pittsburgh since 2003. They did however win a Playoff meeting in the Steel City last season. Both teams will try & establish the run & lean on their defense. In what may be the last regular season home game for Big Ben, we’ll back The Steelers!
