It all comes down to week 17 for Ben Roethlisberger and his Pittsburgh Steelers. They play the Cleveland Browns who aren’t very good this season and they already beat them once this year.
The Steelers struggled earlier this season and Ben told his team like is was, he said the team sucked and they weren’t a very good football team. The Steelers turned things around and the defense has been a hard-hitting defense the Steelers used to know.
Pittsburgh has won 2 in a row coming into week 17. The team needs to dominate the Browns at home and they need some help from the Bengals to beat the Ravens.
Roethlisberger was the subject of many trade rumors this season and he said he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh for ever. His play showed there is no quit in Roethlisberger’s game and he has shown with a little patience his Steelers could win.
This is a big game with big consequences on the line. There was a time win the Steelers playing the Browns was one of the biggest rivalries in all of sports.
Pittsburgh will be ready for this game and Roethlisberger should be able to pick the Browns defense apart. Cleveland has struggled defensively over their past 5 games and playing the Steelers who are in a must win situation isn’t going to be a time for the Cleveland defense to shine.
I see the Steelers coming away win a win and if they get the cards to fall properly, I think they make the play-offs.
