ANALYSIS

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns MNF Best Bet: One Last Roethlisberger Ride

This will be the final Monday Night Football game of the season. More importantly, this will be the final football game at Heinz Field for Ben Roethlisberger. Since he became a Steeler 15 years ago they have been to three Super Bowls, he has won three and there is a 99.9% he will not play after the season. The Steelers technically have not been eliminated; they have a 2% chance of making the playoffs. Realistically, they have no chance so this will be a game of the two teams playing for nothing but one team obviously would like to send Big Ben out as a winner.

These two teams have already played once this year with the Steelers beating the Browns 15 to 10 in Cleveland with Big Ben leading them to a comeback win in the fourth quarter.  Will anybody be motivated for tonight’s game? We feel yes both teams are still in a division rivalry but the Browns have so many Covid issues and so many guys not playing for anything. There's a good chance that they will be some guys benched as they see some young guys play for next year.

Taking everything else aside, let's not forget this proud defense was abused last week by Kansas City losing by 26 points (36-10 final). They are now playing an offense that is one of the worst in the league (9 out of last 10 they haven’t exceeded 24 points) as we all know Baker Mayfield has had an awful year and has even admitted to getting death threats as well as boos for his performance this year.

We have a feeling that Cleveland will try to play some more backups and look towards the future late in this game and Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt will not get their full load of rushes.  

This series has been sweep or get swept and Pittsburgh usually owns this team and is the least beat-up of the two and motivation is motivation tonight.  Big Ben will play his best game of the year, the Steelers will stay in the playoff hunt for one more week and the Cleveland Browns will play a lot of backups in the second half.  Let’s win with Big Ben in his last game together. Lay the bucket and take the Steelers. That's the best way to end a HOF career at home with a W.
