For the Pittsburgh Steelers, there might not have been a Week 2 matchup that’s felt as critical as this one here in 2023 in recent memory. After being absolutely rocked in every phase of the game in their Week 1 home opener against the San Francisco 49ers, this entire team has a lot left to prove, especially on offense, where they struggled most significantly to start off the season. They didn’t have manage a first down until late in the second quarter, with an inefficient pass attack and non-existent run game to spoil their chances of a hot start.
The Browns themselves are in an interesting position, with the opportunity to lead the division 2-0 with a win by virtue of playing intradivisional games to start the year. Though the Browns passing offense has yet to flourish under QB Deshaun Watson, the run game with RB Nick Chubb remains strong, with plenty of studs on the defense who will likely make things difficult for the Steelers' unproven offensive line.
Here’s all you need to know as Steelers second-year QB Kenny Pickett & Co. look to make a bounce back against the Browns, who started the year 1-0 with a convincing win over the Bengals.
