The Steelers will play their game against the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. on Sunday alongside the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins, the NFL announced on Monday.
Pittsburgh has playoff implications on the line, but in order to make the dance, they will have to see the Patriots fall to the Bills and the Dolphins lose against the Jets. That includes a win against the Cleveland Browns into the equation, too, as Pittsburgh can not lose. The Steelers are three-point favorites in that matchup.
The Jets will have nothing to play for, as they are mathematically eliminated from the postseason. Buffalo should have significant seeing implications to play for, and thus is unlikely to sit Josh Allen and his talented group of weapons against the Patriots.
Pittsburgh will play their game on CBS at that time along with the Bills and Patriots, but the Dolphins and Jets kickoff on Fox at the same time as both games. It should be a highly dramatic Sunday that will end with two teams in heartbreak. The Browns will try to send the rival Steelers home for good with a loss, as the Steelers must win in order to keep all scenarios of clinching a playoff scenario alive.
