#457125114 / gettyimages.com The Browns are rolling as of late, including a 31-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers sunday. The Browns are 3-2 on the year and look like a formidable football team thus far, although we are only through 5 games on the year.

Why Did the Steelers Waste $26 Million on Cortez Allen?

Cortez Allen will be an awfully expensive nickel back Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Houston Texans at Heinz Field.

Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers: 2014 Week 7 NFL Pick

Houston Texans (3-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3) People are pretty down on the Steelers here after their loss to the Browns as the public is all over the Texans.
