Steelers going for playoff spot as Browns visit in finale

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter Week 18 still in the mix for a playoff spot. The Steelers have won five of six to get to 8-8 heading into a visit from longtime rival Cleveland to end the regular season. Pittsburgh needs to win and have Miami and New England both lose to reach the playoffs for a third straight year. The Browns are at 7-9, including 3-2 since Deshaun Watson returned from suspension. A victory would give Cleveland a season sweep of Pittsburgh and put the Browns ahead of the Steelers in the final standings for the first time since the franchise re-entered the league in 1999.
