Fan Duel: Take the Scored Steelers against the Browns
Adam Taylor McKillop writes: “Anything can happen in Thursday Night Football, especially when two division rivals clash. Pittsburgh’s rushing defense has the ability to limit Cleveland’s greatest strength at Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. This matchup is Mitchell Trubisky’s. “It’s going to depend on the opposing performance of the Socceroos. Football is a strong Browns secondary, ranking eighth on the Foreigners’ pass-defensive DVOA metric. It’s a low-scoring relationship and expect the Steelers to hang around until the end.”
Devon Platana writes, “This game should end a bit close, but I hope the Browns close the 3.5-point lead. Chubb and Hunt will run all over the Steelers, causing Cleveland to control the ball for most of the game. Only for Pittsburgh’s duo. I don’t think he will have an answer. Even though recent Steelers-Browns matchups tend to be down, I get that support. The average total of their last five games has been 48.2 points, finishing under 40 points only once in this range.”

Fans: Lean Browns vs Steelers in Thursday Night Football game
Josh Yourish writes: “Dan Moore Jr. is a left winger for the Steelers and has a 78.7 PFF pass-blocking rating this season. He had a good deal to tackle Myles Garrett a year ago, but I don’t trust the Steelers offensive line. Pittsburgh can’t put pressure to hold on and Cleveland will. “I think the Steelers fans will be dying to see Kenny Pickett on the field from now on.”
