What’s Going To Happen In The AFC Wild Card
Can Pittsburgh just turn it on?
It has a breathtakingly great defense when everything is working, more big-time passing weapons than needed, and enough good parts to make a big run through this if the team plays up to its full capabilities.
Great defense, veteran quarterback, solid head coach with a Super Bowl ring, and …
No running game whatsoever.
Cleveland has a weird habit of stalling from time to time. It was good enough to hang 40+ in back-to-back games against Tennessee and Baltimore, but only scored ten against Houston and 16 against the Jets.
It also scored a mere seven points in its first meeting with Pittsburgh in Week 6.
It’ll score more than that this time around.
The Steeler defense will rise up early on, and Ben Roethlisberger will lead the way to a too-easy early score and a lead through the first half, and then everything will stall.
Baker Mayfield will open up the second half with a sharp touchdown drive with two key third down throws to get back in the game.
Pittsburgh will follow with a quick three-and-out – helped by a dropped pass on what would’ve been a big play – Cleveland will score again, and it’ll be in control the rest of the way.
It’ll be a best game of the three this season.
