The Cleveland Browns hope for an upset victory when they welcome the rival Pittsburgh Steelers to town on Sunday. The Browns hope they can take advantage of the fact injuries have forced the Steelers to start Charlie Batch at quarterback.
Cleveland (2-8) has struggled this season, but has played many close games and hold a 2-3 home record. Last week, the Browns got off to a 13-0 lead, but eventually lost to the Dallas Cowboys in overtime, 23-20. With Joe Banner now in control of the team, many Browns are playing and coaching for their jobs. Proving themselves against the Steelers could go a long way toward continuing their careers.
Pittsburgh (6-4) lost to the Ravens 13-10 last week, breaking a four-game winning streak. The Steelers were forced to start Byron Leftwich against the Ravens as Ben Roethlisberger is out with a shoulder injury. Leftwich broke his ribs against Baltimore and now Pittsburgh must turn to the 37-year old Batch. Cleveland shouldn't expect things to be much easier with Batch behind center, he is 5-2 as a starter for the Steelers over the past seven seasons.
