The Pittsburgh Steelers are a resilient squad, after beginning the season with a sub .500 record. Since losing their franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, they’ve bounced back with four straight wins. The addition of safety Minkah Fiztpatrick bolstered their defense, which shined in a 17-12 win over the Rams last week.
Cleveland, conversely, has underperformed in 2019. Despite making aggressive moves in the offseason, they’ve only accumulated three wins. Last week they picked up their third with a 19-16 upset of the Bills.
