The Cleveland Browns may not have a strong offense, but their Super Bowl-worthy defense could be enough to lead them on a playoff run. Today, they earned a hard-fought 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, which was a key victory in the AFC North and AFC wild card race.
Despite their shaky offense, the Browns’ defense held Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett to just 93 passing yards. On the other hand, rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson only managed 165 passing yards on 24-of-43 passing and threw an interception.
The Browns’ win was not an easy one, but they can feel confident about their defense and their chances of making the playoffs. The 7-3 Browns are now in second place in the AFC North behind the Baltimore Ravens, who won earlier today against the New York Jets.
The 6-4 Steelers remain in playoff contention but suffered a tough loss to the Browns. They will have to win out if they want to make it to the postseason.
