The Pittsburgh Steelers were already heavy favorites to beat the Cleveland Browns in Week 1, 9-point favorites to be exact, but those odds will likely sky rocket after the news of Myles Garrett’s ankle injury.

After the injury Wednesday, the thought was Garrett’s injury looked serious, but would be evaluated via MRI.

The results were not good.

Some will chalk this up to the Browns just being the Browns, and while this narrative is a slam dunk for most, it just reeks of bad luck for an organization which has seemingly been snake bitten since they returned to the NFL.

In the meantime, the Steelers will be playing a team which will lack their dynamic pass rusher, and the hope is the team can do their job and get an opening season victory on the road, for not just their first win, but their first divisional victory of the 2017 season.
