Browns vs. Steelers in Week 17 may determine AFC North champion
When the Steelers opened the season 11-0, it seemed like a given that they would win the AFC North. That is no longer the case.
The Steelers are now 11-3 after losing to the Bengals on Monday night, and the 10-4 Browns still stand a chance of winning the AFC North.
If the Steelers lose to the Colts next week and the Browns beat the Jets, both teams will be 11-4 and the winner of the Steelers-Browns game of week 17 in Cleveland will be the AFC North Champion.
The Steelers own the tiebreaker over the Browns. So if Pittsburgh beats Indianapolis next week (or if Cleveland loses to the Jets), the Steelers will win the AFC North. In this scenario, the Steelers would likely rest Ben Roethlisberger and other key players in week 17 to try to make everyone healthy for the playoffs. After the defeat against the Bengals, Roethlisberger said that he is not 100 percent healthy and neither is anyone else.
But if the Steelers lose to the Colts and the Browns beat the Jets, week 17 will be a very big game.
