Why the Steelers can cover?

Pittsburgh has strengths, but the Steelers should also take advantage of Cleveland’s shortcomings so far in the season. On offense, Cleveland is below the NFL average in passing yards and yards per attempt, which is a project to continue with Deshaun Watson suspended. In defense, the Browns battled the Jets in a striking fashion last week, losing 31 points, and Cleveland allowing 27.5 points per game. Cleveland is well below average in passing yards allowed, passing touchdowns allowed, net yards per pass attempt allowed, and third down defense. Pittsburgh is also strong on defense, allowing just 37 points in two games.

The Steelers have a top-tier star in Minkah Fitzpatrick, which already has two interceptions this season, and Pittsburgh is near the top of the league in interceptions (five) and revenue creation (25%). Opponents only produce 4.0 yards per carry on the ground against the Steelers, and Mike Tomlin has an excellent reputation for having his team ready in difficult situations, such as a short week on the road in division play.

Why the Browns can cover?

In addition to the home advantage advantage, Cleveland has a path to prosperity on both sides of the ball. The Browns have only one turnover in two games and put points on the scoreboard. Cleveland leads the league with points on 52.4% of offensive drives, and the Browns are in the top 10 in the NFL in points per game and points per possession. The Browns also average 380 yards per game, with top five points in rushing yards, yards per rush attempts and hasty touchdowns.

Cleveland is also near the top of the NFL in first downs (52) and third down conversion rate (53.3%) on offense. The Pittsburgh offense also stumbles out of the blocks in 2022, scoring just two offensive touchdowns in two games. The Steelers are No. 30 in the NFL in total yards, No. 31 in first downs, No. 28 in passing yards, and No. 31 in net yards per pass attempt. Pittsburgh also averages just 3.8 yards per carry, and Myles Garrett can lead to a pass rush in terrorizing Mitch Trubisky and Pittsburgh’s passing attack.
