Ben Roethlisberger (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5536/ben-roethlisberger) played his best game of the season last week, and the Pittsburgh Steelers (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/pit/pittsburgh-steelers) are back in the playoff hunt after a slow start.
Now Roethlisberger will look to build off that performance Sunday when the Steelers travel to face their AFC North rival Cleveland Browns (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/cle/cleveland-browns), whom he has dominated throughout his career.
Last Sunday, Roethlisberger threw for 367 yards and four touchdowns without an interception as the Steelers (4-6) defeated the Lions 37-27. The win was the team's fourth in six games after starting 0-4. For his performance, Roethlisberger was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
"We've got to keep this thing going," said Pittsburgh wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5633/jerricho-cotchery), who caught the last of Roethlisberger's four touchdowns, a 20-yard strike in the fourth quarter. "Our margin for error is nonexistent right now. We feel good about this team and we're going to keep grinding."
Currently tied with the Browns (4-6) in both the division race and the wild-card standings, the Steelers need their quarterback to deliver again. With that the case, there is no team Roethlisberger would rather face than Cleveland. The Steelers are 15-1 all-time against their longtime rivals when Roethlisberger is under center, with the quarterback completing 62.5 percent of his passes. Roethlisberger hasn't thrown an interception at FirstEnergy Stadium since 2006.
The Browns will try to counter Roethlisberger with one of the NFL's top defenses. Opponents average just 4.45 yards per play against Cleveland, the lowest in the league, and the cornerback tandem of Joe Haden (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13249/joe-haden) and Buster Skrine (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14139/buster-skrine) lead a secondary that is among the league's best at taking away deep passes.
For the season, the Browns have allowed just 25 passes of 20 yards or longer, fourth-fewest in the NFL. On the other side, Roethlisberger's strong arm and ability to improvise have helped the Steelers rank third in the league with 46 completions of at least 20 yards.
On Sunday, something has to give.
"We have an extreme amount of potential," said Browns linebacker Paul Kruger (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/12437/paul-kruger). "For us, it's just going to be about preparing and doing what we need to do to beat Pittsburgh. I think the coaches do a great job of keeping us focused on what we're doing."
The matchup against the Steelers will the Browns' third straight within the AFC North. Last Sunday, Cleveland fell to the division-leading Bengals 41-20 one week after it beat the Ravens.
"It was an important opportunity for us, and we didn't play the way we were capable of playing and weren't able to get it done at the end of the day," Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said of the loss. "I think that it's important that we learn from this, and when we have an opportunity again, which we will in the future, this experience is something that guys will be able to draw from and that'll help us."
Against Pittsburgh, Jason Campbell (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/8440/jason-campbell) will be making his fourth consecutive start for the Browns at quarterback, and he should be helped by the friendly confines of the home field. In his two starts on the road this season -- both losses -- Campbell has thrown as many interceptions (3) as touchdowns, and has a passer rating of 68.3. In his lone home start, the 24-18 win versus Baltimore on Nov. 3, Campbell threw three touchdowns without an interception and finished with a rating of 116.6.
"The key to the quarterback is how guys bounce back when they're having some adversity or don't play as well as they would've liked," Chudzinski said. "Generally, teams are better at home (with) the energy, the crowd. I think the fans have been awesome, and our team feeds off that energy. You have to be able to win in both places, whether it's on the road or at home and we need to do a better job on the road."
Both teams are in the thick of the wild-card chase since nine AFC teams enter play this weekend with either four or five wins, and the New York Jets (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/nyj/new-york-jets) hold the second and final wild-card spot at 5-5.
"This is a tight race," Steelers cornerback Will Allen (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5636/will-allen) said. "It's a three-way tie for second in our division. Hopefully we can get another win, get three in a row. It's a tough task.
"Cleveland is a good team. They always play us hard."

Game 11 matchup: Steelers vs. Browns

November 23, 2013 8:46 PM
By Gerry Dulac / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
When the Browns have the ball: Disruptions at the two most important positions -- quarterback and running back -- are the biggest reason for a lack of production on offense. The Browns haven't scored more than 20 points in four of their past five games. The Browns are on their third starting quarterback this season and 20th since returning to the league in 1999. But Jason Campbell seems to have brought some stability to the position by throwing for 809 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions in three starts. Campbell, though, is completing just 55.7 percent of his attempts. Campbell does not have many playmakers, though. Wide receiver Josh Gordon, who has four 100-yard receiving games and averages 18.8 yards per catch, is the biggest. Tight end Jordan Cameron leads the team with 56 catches and six touchdowns, but he has slowed after a fast start. Running back Willis McGahee was brought in when Trent Richardson, last year's No. 1 pick, was traded and leads the team with 275 yards rushing. But he is averaging just 2.6 yards per attempt.
When the Steelers have the ball: The Browns have switched to a 3-4 defense under new coordinator and former Steelers assistant Ray Horton, and he has them applying more pressure with more people while still stopping the run. The Browns have 31 sacks -- tied for ninth in the NFL -- with 15 different players registering at least one sack. Rookie OLB Barkevious Mingo, their No. 1 pick, leads the team with four sacks. The Browns rank eighth against the run, fourth against the pass, in the league. The rush defense is headed by 335-pound nose tackle Phil Taylor and 330-pound defensive end Ahtyba Rubin. Former Pitt DE Jabaal Sheard has been moved to outside linebacker in the 3-4. Inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson leads the team with 91 tackles. Strong safety T.J. Ward is having a Pro Bowl-type season with 77 tackles and two interceptions and combines with Tashaun Gipson to give the Browns two hard-hitting players on the back end.
Keep an eye on: P Spencer Lanning ... One week after the Lions unsuccessfully tried a fake field goal, the Steelers special teams should be wary of Lanning, who threw an 11-yard touchdown pass on a fake field-goal attempt earlier this season against Minnesota. But Lanning also had two punts blocked last week against the Bengals, one of which was returned 24 yards for a touchdown.
Intangibles: The Browns have lost four of their past five games after a 3-2 start; the Steelers have won two in a row for the second time this season. ... Since returning to the league in 1999, the Browns are 5-24 against the Steelers. But they are 2-2 in the past four games in Cleveland. ... The Browns would match their victory total from last season with a victory. It would also be their third AFC North win this season, tying their most since the division was formed in 2002. ... The Steelers haven't lost consecutive games in Cleveland since the Browns won four in a row from 1990-93. ... Four of the past five games in Cleveland have been decided by seven points or fewer.
To win, the Browns must ...
1. Have Campbell be M-mmm good. The former Redskins quarterback has to be more accurate and make plays in the passing game.
2. Flash Gordon. He has four touchdown catches of 37 yards or longer and needs to test a defense that has allowed six pass plays of 50 yards or longer.
3. Play for Ray. Horton is a Dick LeBeau disciple who spent seven years as a secondary coach with the Steelers (2004-10).
To win, the Steelers must ...
1. Get Brown on Browns. It will be up to cornerback Joe Haden to stop Antonio Brown, the NFL's leading receiver.
2. Have Ben be Ben. Roethlisberger is 15-1 lifetime against the Browns and coming off his best game of the season.
3. Not suffer a Brown-out. The Steelers are averaging 30.3 points in their past three games but have scored just 43 points in four of their past five in Cleveland.

I don't understand why the Steelers can't ever sign a kicker who can put the ball through the end zone on kickoffs.... by not doing so, you automatically give the opponent free field position on short kickoffs.

dcsteel5804

It sounds like the punting game is gonna suck today. And ours sucks without bad wind conditions, so field position will be a key part of the game.

They are getting absolutely no pass rush. That better change or it's going to be a long day for this defense.

Been like that for the last year and half. That's why it's been a long season and a half.

Another 1st down conversion. Unreal

Jason Campbell is today's winner of the "Let the Steelers' D make you look like an All Pro" sweepstakes. Its like he is Tom Brady back there because we cant get to him and we cant cover their receivers.

Right there, we almost get him and completes the pass ANYWAY.

Sometimes he makes passing decisions like he's the dumbest QB in the league.

Surprisingly...the same can be said about the head coach sometimes appearing to be the dumbest coach and the offensive coordinator being the dumbest offensive coordinator.
