Thursday Night Football Live Thread: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

Who Will Snap Their Losing Streak Tonight? [Steelers vs Browns Live Thread]

12/10/09 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5229 respect

Who would have thought that coming into this game, the Steelers and Browns would both have the longest active losing streaks in the NFL? Shocking, but true. The Browns have an unrivaled 7-game streak, and the Steelers are tied for 2nd with the Texans Buccaneers and Rams with 4 straight losses.

One of these teams will pick up a win tonight. 92% of you apparently think that it will be the Steelers. I would tend to agree, since the Browns are one of the worst teams that I've seen in a long time, while the Steelers are a decent team who is just going through a rough patch.

If you're watching the game (8:20 pm EST on the NFL Network), then chat it up here. As always, enjoy the game!

In the AFL we have the 'Premiership Hangover' for sides that struggle after winning the Grand Final, the Steelers are having the equivalent after the Super Bowl. Can't believe they were 6-2 at one stage.

What the hell happened to the offensive line?!?!?!
How the hell do you tank 5 games in a row!!?!?!

Were done, if we can't beat the Clowns, you tell me who the real Bozos are?


Congrats Browns fans, you deserve it.

What the hell happened to the offensive line?!?!?!
 - They didn't show up!

How the hell do you tank 5 games in a row!!?!?!
 - I, along with other Steelers fans, still trying to figure it out.

I'm glad you didn't take off work because you would have been really PISSED!  Watching the game, it was hard to know that this was the same team that won the Super Bowl last season.  Such a fast, steady fall

I believe that the Rams would get the first pick based on their opponents winning pct is less than that of the Buccaneers....Bucs in the #2 spot, hey Eric Berry is not a bad consolation prize

 In all likelihood they were out of the playoffs before this game started.  Yeah, it was a possibility, but they would've needed a TON of help even at 10-6.

The Steelers drive the ball down to Cleveland's 34 and punt it away, put the DAMN ball in the end zone.

12/10/09   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

Field goal again for the Steelers 6-13 Brown's ahead, sorry Steelers but these field goal are not going to win this game. Steelers are going to have to get into the end zone.

Touchdown Brown's Jenning with the Brown's first running touchdown of the season, how fitting it's on the Steelers. 13-0 Brown's with 41 seconds left in the second quarter.

12/10/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 That's it, I'm turning this game off and watching the rest of the Pens game.

12/10/09   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

Direct snap to Cribbs twice you think maybe the Steelers defense would catch on, but no let them run all over the field.

I agree...I think ESPN has spoiled us.  I feel the same about the Sunday night pre-game show on NBC. I love and respect all the guys on the panel, but it is so boring.  It's just not the same as with Chris B and the guys on ESPN!

Brown's on the board first with a field goal 3-0 Brown's.

 5 yards on first down for Mendenhall, 4 yards on 2nd down...I still don't get it.  I know it's the Browns, but if they gave up 9 yards to Mendenhall on 2 carries, give it to him again when you only need one.
