The Steelers vs. Browns game in Week 17 could’ve been a massive matchup, but Pittsburgh locked up the NFC North in Week 16.
That doesn’t mean it’s not a big game for Cleveland, though, which needs a win to guarantee a spot in the playoffs. If the Browns indeed make it, it’ll be the first playoff berth for the team since 2002.
Whether Pittsburgh rests players or not is up for debate. The Steelers can’t get the No. 1 seed in the AFC, which was clinched by Kansas City, and in 2020 only that top seed gets a first-round bye. Cleveland would certainly benefit from time playing against Mason Rudolph rather than against Ben Roethlisberger.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Steelers vs. Browns game on Sunday, including kickoff time, TV channels and a full Week 17 NFL schedule.
