Tonight's game

December 07, 2006|By STAFF REPORTS

Time, TV -- 8, NFL Network

Line -- Steelers by 7 1/2

Last meeting -- Steelers won, 24-20, on Nov. 19 at Cleveland.

Key stat -- The Steelers have won 13 of the teams' 16 meetings (including one playoff game) since the Browns returned to the league in 1999.

The buzz -- Amid all their turmoil, the Browns -- led by backup QB Derek Anderson, a former Ravens draft pick -- managed to rally and beat the playoff-caliber Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Pulling an upset on the road will be more problematic.
