It was just four days ago that the Browns appeared well on their way to what would have been their first 2-0 start since the 1993 season, holding a 13-point lead with less than two minutes remaining. A historic collapse, however, stuck Cleveland with a 31-30 loss, and left a Browns defense that had entered the season with lofty expectations reeling.
In an attempt to rectify the communication issues that have plagued Cleveland's defense through the first two weeks, members of the unit held a players-only meeting. As for this week, the Browns should benefit from facing a Steelers offense that has struggled with Mitch Trubisky at quarterback -- although it's worth noting that Pittsburgh possesses a plethora of talented skill players.
With high winds expected for the game, don't be surprised to see a heavy dose of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt on offense for Cleveland. While games against the Steelers are typically tough, a win would go a very long way toward the Browns bouncing back from last week's loss -- while another defeat could send Cleveland's season spiraling earlier than anyone would have expected.
