The Steelers had won 18 of their last 19 meetings with the Browns.
With a frigid wind blowing off Lake Erie, with many Browns fans staying home to watch the game on television, Steelers' nation invaded the stadium.
Bill Annick, a long suffering loyal Browns fan said, "this is like a Steeler's home game. I mean all the bars on West 6th are all filled with Steelers fans."
Gordy Miller and his family were all wearing their black and gold jerseys as they had dinner before the game.
Miller looked around the room at all the Pittsburgh fans and said, "we checked into the hotel over here and everybody walking up and down the street is wearing black and gold. It's amazing."
Standing in line at the stadium, Josh Starr and his buddies were laughing. "This is our stadium now," said Starr. "It might say Cleveland in the name but this will be our stadium by the end of the night."
Nearby Jim Smith wearing orange and brown shook his head. "It's terrible."
Smith added, "It's like putting a dagger in my heart seeing these punks wearing Steeler gear."
The saving grace for Browns fans on this frigid night. The Steeler nation had to drive home as losers. Browns win 13-6!!
