**Pittsburgh at Cleveland -10(44.5)** That spread can't be right


Recommended Posts

I hate that rule.  If the clock is stopped the injured team should not be forced to use a timeout inside 2 minutes. The clock is already stopped.

this should be weird. 

Myles Garrett thinks he has a helmetable face.

Chubb on target for 12 carries. Fresh!

No clue, Bracie.

The Buffalo game better hold, though. I can't see Buffalo trotting their starters out there after the half. I could be totally wrong, but they'll need to hold onto that lead.

Chubb is averaging 11.9 yards per carry… but only has 7 carries

#Browns will get the ball to start the second half.

Two words: Nick Chubb

Is this correct?

With the way things look at halftime (Bills up 22, Ravens up 14). If Browns win, Steelers will play the Browns a third time. If Steelers win, Steelers will play Colts or Titans next weekend. #Steelers

Steelers will play the 6th seed. Looks like if the Ravens win they get the 5th seed over the Browns.

Really interesting game so far. Watching it out of the corner of my eye. Need moar Chubb, Cleveland. This is where the threat of OBJ is missed.

Pittsburgh beating up on Cleveland in Cleveland with half of the steelers team still in Pittsburgh. Crazy. 

At the risk of offending our Cleveland citizens here, they are probably one of the worst teams to ever start 10-3. That's not just me, that's Football Outsiders's historical DVOA measurement of their entire team and an article written back in Week 14 or 15.

Go for it on 4th and 2

Kicking the field goal there just delays the inevitable.

Pretty sure it will be the ravens

This was discussed earlier in the thread.  With Ravens, Bills and Browns win, Steelers play Browns.  There doesn’t appear to be a scenario where Steelers meet Ravens next week.

Going for the extra point is a mistake but who cares.  But still frustrating that a veteran coach like Tomlin still hasn’t figured this out.

Most teams prefer to try to get down 8 and not miss the 2 pointer and lose all their momentuem.  We hardly ever see a team down 9 go for 2.

I think with the advent of analytics, a lot of coaches are changing their thought process here.  Tomlin is old school.  The correct call (from a statistical standpoint) is to go for 2 first.  That way if you miss, you have enough time to adjust your game strategy.

Too bad we have no good kicker and now this game will come down to stopping them on a 2 point conversion

Had Pitt 4th and 8 and 4th and 10 and couldn't stop either then couldn't get a 1st down then couldn't trust your kicker then couldn't stop them so now comes down to a 2 pointer...did I sum that up ?  Sad

did you put money on them or something?

No.  They just are not good.  So sad to watch.  Half of the Steelers team is in Pittsburgh and Stefanski wants to get fancy pulling Chubb and not PUNTING .

Start using your timeouts, Cleveland.

Uh no not yet they still have to make the 2 pointer you don't give them free time in case they miss.

If they make it still have plenty of time to get in FG range.

Is Johnson really a back up? 

Steelers seem like they want to actually try and win this game if nothing more than simple momentum going into next week. 

A Steelers win also impacts matchups.  They would avoid having to face a division rival next week (not saying that’s the best outcome for them).

We know that Pittsburgh is going to score. Only difference is whether they score with 1 minute on the clock or with 3 minutes left on the clock. Cleveland has decided that it's better for them if they only have 1 minute left.
