The second of two “Monday Night Football” games in Week 2 pits old rivals against each other as the Pittsburgh Steelers play host to the Cleveland Browns.
Cleveland was one of the most surprising winners of the season’s opening week, as the Browns laid the smack down against the Cincinnati Bengals in a 24-3 win. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, was blown out on their home field by the San Francisco 49ers. In this game, the Browns will be looking to continue their good start, while the Steelers attempt to reverse the tide.

In those seven games, the Browns have scored 27, 10, 13, 10, 24, 14, and 24 points, good for an average of just 17.4 per game. That is, to put it mildly, not what the Browns signed up for when they traded for and handed the largest guaranteed contract in NFL history to a player who had been accused by upward of 20 women of sexual misconduct.
