While the Steelers offense certainly will miss Roethlisberger, the Steelers defense as well as a solid run game and a “good enough” passing game should propel them to victory. Oddsmakers currently have the Steelers to have about a 54% chance to win this game. At Sports Tradex, which is a free prediction marketplace that awards prizes to users who perform the best weekly, the Steelers are favored even more so at about 65% to win. Out of all of the games on the board on Sunday, the Steelers-Browns game is projected to score the least amount of points (at about 34-35 total between the two teams). Considering the Steelers defense only gave up six points to the Ravens (who have a much better offense than the Browns), the Steelers should be able to get by with minimal offense. Most likely we’ll see a better offensive showing anyways from the Steelers this week. Cleveland’s defense is 22nd in the league at defending the pass and 24th at defending the run. Considering how well the Steelers...

The Cleveland Browns regret that their fans didn’t want to wave white flags at Charlie Batch

Here’s Browns spokesman Neil Gulkis on the team’s decision to cancel the white flag giveaway that had been planned for today’s game: “After further and careful consideration, we felt it was in the best interests of everyone involved that we not have a giveaway item at tomorrow’s game.

Batch Struggles vs. Browns

Steelers QB Charlie Batch completed 20-of-34 for 197 yards with zero touchdowns and three picks Sunday against the Browns.Fantasy Spin:Batch targeted Mike Wallace six times but couldn't complete any of them. Pittsburgh ended up turning the ball over eight times, including a lost fumble by all four Steelers running backs (Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, Chris Rainey).

You’d Be Middle Fingering, Too, If You Had To Stand Next To These Morons

How disappointing that Charlie Batch, at 37, couldn’t go into Cleveland and lead his team to a win after the Steelers managed 8 turnovers. Pittsburgh had 13 first downs and 8 turnovers. The Steelers had 10 passing first downs and 8 turnovers. At least angry Browns fan went home happy and his girlfriend won’t have to endure another week of getting screamed at.

Steelers Hand Game to Browns, Somehow Lose By One Score

There isn't much you can say about a seven turnover performance. It was comically bad. None of the running backs could keep their hands on the ball and Charlie Batch showed he didn't have command of his throws. The offense was as bad as it could possibly be, save for a touchdown drive late in the first half.The bright spot in this game was the defense. James Harrison played...

Girls Of The NFL: Week 12

After the Thanksgiving hangover wears off prepare yourself for a sub-par Sunday of NFL action. Other than 49ers-Saints and Packers-Giants there really aren’t many games to get excited about. Steelers-Browns with Charlie Batch making his NFL return, anyone? Making matters worse is the Monday Night Football trainwreck.  Panthers-Eagles, anyone? A few other enticing bets would be...

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns: Week 12 NFL Pick

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) at Cleveland Browns (2-8) Charlie Batch will start this one for the Steelers. He should have started against the Ravens to begin with. He’s always been a solid backup quarterback who can win games when Ben Roethlisberger is hurt (5-2 SU and 5-2 ATS since joining the Steelers). I think he’s a better quarterback than Byron Leftwich. He’s also a better...

Cleveland Browns a real threat to the Steelers

Just a couple short weeks ago, the thought that the Cleveland Browns could uproot the Pittsburgh Steelers on any given day would have been ludicrous. Two weeks and two quarterbacks later, the Pittsburgh Steelers are as vulnerable as ever, and suddenly, the Browns aren't an easy out. Even though the Steelers are short on quarterbacks, my focus will be on the Browns' trigger...

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

Anytime your franchise QB goes down and you're faced with starting 3-years-removed-from-Tampa Byron Leftwich and 2-years-removed-from-spot-starting Charlie Batch against division rivals in successive weeks, the forecast is grim.

The Cleveland Browns have given up on the planned promotion of handing out a white flag to all of its fans. After a week of criticism from fans and players the team has scrapped the idea of giving away a white flag before Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
