Default Will the Cleveland Browns finish ahead of the Steelers?

What are the chances the Browns will finish ahead of the Steelers in the AFC North?

The last time that happened?

Chuck Noll coached the Steelers and Bud Carson, his former defensive coordinator, coached the Browns. It was 1989, or 24 years ago, the last time Cleveland finished ahead of Pittsburgh. The Browns won the old AFC Central Division with a 9-6-1 record. Both the Steelers and Houston Oilers earned wildcard playoff berths at 9-7.

The Steelers opened the playoffs at Houston, where they won in overtime on Gary Andersonís 50-yard field goal. They then went to Denver, where they lost to John Elway 24-23. Had they won that game, and they were ahead late, they would have played the AFC championship game in Cleveland.

Instead, the Browns, who beat Buffalo in their first playoff game, lost at Denver in the AFC title game 37-21.

Of course today, there are no Houston Oilers, who became the Tennessee Titans, and that Cleveland Browns team became the Baltimore Ravens. Four AFC Central teams helped form the new AFC North.

And now, for the first time in 24 years, the Browns at 3-2 are threatening to finish ahead of the Steelers, who are 0-4.

Unless the Steelers find a way to get their shit together starting next week, it sure looks that way.

I think the Browns will fall back to earth, but will the Steelers get up off the mat in time to catch them?

Plain and simple, thus far the Brownstains have found ways to win games that they probably should have loss, and the Steelers have found ways to lose games they probably should have won. That is not a good sign.

I would take the Browns defensive players over the Steelers. If we had there defense we would be in the playoffs

With that said I have no clue which team will have more wins and I don't really care because neither will make playoffs

Who knows? There's still a lot of the season remaining, and anything could happen to these two teams during that time span.

It will come down to head to head matchups. I think its possible the Steelers finish bottom of the division, but hopefully 3rd.

The Browns have a really good defense. I think losing Hoyer hurts them badly, but maybe getting benched will be a wakeup call for Weeden.

I don't even want to think about it.

But, there's still a lot of football left, and we gotta believe!

Still waiting on when the Steelers are going to blow out a team. Does Tomlin ever want to blow out teams? The shitty ones or the good ones?
