Five reasons the Cleveland Browns will stun the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With the Cleveland Browns staring down a Week 6 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steerers, those pesky statistics are popping up and they’re ugly.

You know the ones I’m talking about. The Browns finally have a quarterback in Baker Mayfield who has as many wins at FirstEnergy Stadium as Ben Roethlisberger. Big Ben is 11-2-1 at the Factory of Sadness, while Mayfield is now 11-6.

The other glaring stat is the Browns’ 17-year losing streak at Heinz Field. While the Browns look drastically improved from last season, they’re not going to be taken seriously until they start doing things such as beat rivals on the road–especially in Pittsburgh.

The Steelers are undefeated and playing their fourth home game in a row, which is because of the team taking an early bye. Their schedule game against the Titans in Nashville had to rescheduled for late October as a result of Tennessee’s issues with COVID-19.

Pittsburgh is a four-point favorite at the one Vegas site I looked at, and I think that goes to show to the respect the Browns are starting to get nationally.

Normally, it seems the Browns are at least a touchdown underdogs in Heinz Field.

The times, they are a changing, though, and the Browns are right in the thick of the toughest conference in football. Here’s five reasons they’ll stun the Steelers in Week 6.
