The Pittsburgh Steelers just finished their regular season finale vs. the Cleveland Browns in Week 17, and the 24-22 loss, combined with a Buffalo Bills win, means the Steelers and Browns will lock horns again in the Wild Card round of the AFC Playoffs.

While the Steelers did lose their last game of the regular season, it was far from a bad performance. The Steelers were a two-point conversion away from tying the game with the Browns, and this despite many starters.

The Steelers didn’t just rest the following players, those players didn’t even make the trip to Cleveland:

QB Ben Roethlisberger
DT Cam Heyward
OLB T.J. Watt
C Maurkice Pouncey

The Steelers now have to turn their attention to the Browns, but this time in a win-or-go-home playoff scenario. When the Steelers will host the Browns next weekend has yet to be decided, although rumors are the Steelers first playoff game will be on Sunday.

Be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black and gold as they prepare for the Browns, this time in the postseason.
