Steelers Will Host Browns in First Round of Playoffs

Published

on

The Cleveland Browns’ 24-22 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday has sealed a rematch in the Wildcard round of the NFL playoffs next week.

The No. 3-seed Pittsburgh Steelers will host the No. 6-seed Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field, with the date and time of the game still yet to be determined.

Pittsburgh is 2-0 all-time against Cleveland in the postseason, most recently beating them 36-33 at home back in 2002. This is the first time the Browns have reached the playoffs since that game, snapping a 17-year drought.

The Steelers thumped the Browns 38-7 back in Week 6 at full strength, holding them to just 75 rushing yards and forcing a pair of turnovers. Running James Conner rushed for 101 yards and a score, while safety Minkah Fitzpatrick had a 33-yard pick six.
