Stephen Nover's NFL Totals Crusher
Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh,
01/01/2017 13:00 EDT,
Score: 24 - 27
Total: -110/+44 Under
Locked into the No. 3 seed, the Steelers are likely to sit Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown.
A looming quarterback matchup of Cody Kessler versus Landry Jones, devoid of his top weapons, does not exactly bring visions of a high-scoring game.
These teams combined for only 33 points during their Week 11 matchup.
The Browns rank second-to-last in scoring and yards. Pittsburgh defense has been playing better since getting healthier. The Steelers have held five of their last six opponents to 20 or fewer points.
Cleveland's defense has improved since landing Jamie Collins in a trade with New England. Pittsburgh's Jones is one of the poorer backup quarterbacks in the league.
The weather forecast is calling for better than a 70 percent chance of showers with possible snow.
