The last time Ben Roethlisberger faced Cleveland, it started with a chase after the football snapped over his head towards the end zone. He ended the game on the bench with an uncertain future. Thus, the Steelers vs Browns game in Week 8 will be an opportunity to redeem himself.
The Steelers quarterback said that it will be a fun game. Also, it is Halloween. Sports betting software experts are expecting it to be a little scare and full of bad blood. At present, Pittsburgh has a 3-3 record. They want to keep their season going to the right decision.
Steelers vs Browns Betting Picks
Cleveland’s wild-card win was the team’s first in the postseason since 1994. Also, it is an indicator that the NFL rivalry was leveling out. Although Roethlisberger is 24-2-1 against Cleveland since 2004, he feels that his personal standing doesn’t indicate the competitiveness of the rivalry.
The Steelers quarterback pointed out he has been dominant against the Browns in recent years. Also, he joked that he’s happy that he is no longer the most winning QB in Browns’ stadium history.
Roethlisberger hasn’t said whether it would be his last season in the NFL. However, it might be his last game against Cleveland. He has an 11-2-1 record in Cleveland. Also, it showed Browns’ misfortune of not drafting Roethlisberger in the draft.
Although the Steelers lost in their last playoff game against the Browns, coach Mike Tomlin wouldn’t use that result as a motivation going into the Halloween matchup. He said that they don’t want to talk about old news and stories.
