Yeah, the intensity of the rivalry has been down the past few years, if only because the Browns have been so bad, but this rivalry has deep roots.
Let’s put this in historical context:
1966: Cleveland 41, Pittsburgh 10
Quote from Cleveland fullback Ernie Green:
“It was like running downhill.”
It's Browns vs. Steelers, at Heinz Field, on Prime Time national television. The Steelers must win this game.
