Steelers vs Browns Prediction Week 3

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Steelers: 42.0% to win
Browns: 57.5% to win

Anything can happen on Thursday Night Football, especially when two division rivals clash. Pittsburgh's rush-defense has the ability to limit Cleveland's biggest strength in Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. This matchup will come down to Mitchell Trubisky's performance against a strong Browns secondary, one that ranks eighth in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric. Expect a low scoring affair and the Steelers to hang around until the end. Bet Steelers +3.5 (-122).
