The Pittsburgh Steelers are resting players this week, after getting their bye week taken from them early in the season. They travel to take on the Cleveland Browns this week, who must win to ensure they make the playoffs. However, they are dealing with some COVID issues in the locker room.

Due to the Steelers resting players, it's the Browns that are the clear favorites in the NFL odds to win. Let's take a look at the expert picks and predictions for Steelers-Browns.
