Weather forecast for Steelers vs. Browns could impact game plan for both teams

New, comments

As if there weren’t enough questions regarding the Steelers vs. Browns Week-1 game, the weather doesn’t look like it’ll be cooperating much.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns will square off in Cleveland in Week 1, and it seems as if Mother Nature is going to make sure these two teams remember this game.

For those fans who love to have ideal and near-perfect conditions to see the teams’ true test of skill — you might not want to read below. But if you’re a fan who loves the fact football should be played in all conditions, and if you think the outdoors is where the game belongs — please read on...

The fact this weather forecast could hardly be more miserable will drastically alter both teams’ game plans tomorrow. Expect heavy doses of the ground game, and even field goals which otherwise would be viewed as automatic could turn into nail-biters with the swirling wind and rain predicted.

With the game still more than 24 hours away, things can certainly change, so stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the weather, and the upcoming Week-1 AFC North grudge match (or mud bath).
