The AFC North is looking much more competitive than expected so far this season, and either the Cleveland Browns or the Pittsburgh Steelers will be atop the standings after they meet on Thursday Night Football.
The Browns are looking to regroup after the New York Jets scored two touchdowns in 60 seconds to pull off a thrilling upset last week. Both of the Browns’ games this year had a point differential of two points or less. Expect another close matchup while the team waits for Deshaun Watson to return from suspension.
The Steelers are also coming off a close loss, this one to the New England Patriots. Unrest has already started. Some players made comments to the media implying they were unhappy with the team’s play-calling. Mitch Trubisky has been the starting quarterback so far, but some fans are already calling for the Kenny Pickett era to begin. Could another loss cause more talk of a change?
Use this as your open thread to discuss Thursday Night Football.
