The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to finish the regular season 13-3 after beating the Cleveland Browns 28-24 in Week 17 at Heinz Field. With the win, the Steelers are now the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs, and will have the luxury of resting their wounds next week while the Wild Card teams go head-to-head.
The Steelers were able to leave Week 17 rather unscathed. Mike Tomlin mentioned guard/center B.J. Finney being evaluated for what is an apparent leg injury. Other than that, nothing major to note, and that is a good thing.
Tomlin rolled the dice, choosing to rest Ben Roethlisberger, Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, Cameron Heyward and Le’Veon Bell in hopes of having them fully rested, and healthy, when the Steelers play in the Divisional Round in a week.
The Steelers’ 13-3 record is their best since 2004, Ben Roethlisberger’s rookie season when the team finished 15-1 en route to the AFC Championship game.
