I will go on the record here and say this: If the Cleveland Browns beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, then hell will have officially frozen over. Having said that, things to look for in this “football game”:
Willie Parker left, Willie Parker right, Willie Parker in the end zone. The Browns defensive line won’t stand a chance against Parker as he will shred them to pieces. Expect around 25-28 carries, 145-160 yards and two scores. The rumor has it that the Steelers plan to use a wide-open offense this week; I’m not sure that will be necessary as QB Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t have to pass for 300 yards vs. the Browns secondary. Just enough to make the Steelers running game that much more effective.
Meanwhile, Browns QB Charlie Frye will get used and abused by the always-tough Steelers defensive line. Browns RB Jamal Lewis will look like a downhill RB, not a RB who is running downhill against the Steelers run defense. I’m sorry Browns fans, but facts are facts. The Browns don’t stand a chance today. But there’s hope in the horizon for the Browns – Brady Quinn will be behind center soon. Steelers in a romp.
