Pittsburgh Steelers Form


Pittsburgh are looking to bounce back from a first defeat of the season on a short week.

The Steelers opened the season with a surprise 23-20 overtime win against last season’s beaten Super Bowl team, Cincinnati.

They were brought back down to Earth in Week 2 though, losing 17-14 at home to New England.

Pittsburgh fans called for Mitch Trubisky to be replaced by Kenny Pickett as he went 21/33 for just 168 yards, one touchdown and one pick.

Trubisky is now 42/71 for 362 yards, two touchdowns and an interception this season.

Out of the backfield, Najee Harris has 115 yards from scrimmage and one receiving touchdown.

And in the passing game, Diontae Johnson has 112 yards receiving, while Pat Freiermuth has 97 receiving yards and a TD.

Pittsburgh’s defense are giving up 404.0 yards per game to rank #25 in the NFL, but they are allowing just 18.5 points per game to rank #12.

They have also been forcing turnovers, averaging 3.0 per game through the first two weeks. 

Cleveland Browns Form


Cleveland will be desperate to issue an immediate response to last weekend’s late collapse.

The Browns snatched a 26-24 win over Carolina in Week 1, but were on the receiving end of late drama a week later.

They gave up 14 points in the final 88 seconds to lose 31-30 to the New York Jets in their home opener.

Jacoby Brissett finished the game 22/27 for 229 yards, one touchdown and one interception, while also rushing for 43 yards.

Nick Chubb had a big day as he rushed for 87 yards and three touchdowns, while also making three catches for 26 yards.

In the passing game, Amari Cooper caught nine of his 10 targets for 101 yards and one touchdown.

Over the course of the season so far, Brissett has gone 40/61 for 376 yards, two TDs and a pick as he continues to fill in for Deshaun Watson.

Nick Chubb leads the team in rushing with 228 yards and three TDs, while Copper is the team’s leading receiver with 118 yards and a score.

The defense has had a few early issues, giving up 27.5 points per game through the first two weeks.
