2012 NFL schedule, week 12: Browns face tough task against Steelers

The Cleveland Browns have to face the league's top-ranked defense in the Steelers on Sunday.

The Cleveland Browns will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC North matchup at 1:00 pm ET on CBS on Sunday as part of a 12-game NFL schedule.

The Browns are 2-8 and in fourth place in the AFC North. While the teams above them fight for playoff positioning, the Browns have long been out of the playoff picture as one of the worst teams in the league across the board. The only glimmer of hope is that the Browns have won two of their last four games after starting the season with five straight losses.

The Steelers will again be without Ben Roethlisberger as veteran quarterback Charlie Batch will get the start after Roethlisberger's original backup, Byron Leftwich, was hurt in his lone start on last Sunday.

The rest of the AFC North will see the Cincinnati Bengals get a visit from the AFC West Oakland Raiders and the Baltimore Ravens visiting the AFC West San Diego Chargers.
