Game preview

As the Browns take the field for what will be their first postseason game in 18 years, they'll do so not only shorthanded but without their head coach.

Due to a positive COVID-19 test, Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski will miss Sunday's game, as will five Browns players, including star cornerback Denzel Ward. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, should be well-rested after sitting multiple starters, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and star linebacker T.J. Watt, during last week's loss to the Browns.

Nevertheless, it's worth noting that the Steelers struggled through their final month of the season, losing four of their final five games. Can Cleveland overcome its COVID-19-related hurdles and beat the Steelers in their own stadium? If they can, a game against the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs awaits.
