New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers are trying to win their first AFC North game of 2015 when the Cleveland Browns come to Heinz Field, but who to the experts like in this divisional showdown?

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 5-4 and hosting the 2-7 Cleveland Browns Sunday at Heinz Field, and despite the Steelers being 4.5-point favorites in the game, there is plenty of question marks surrounding these two lineups. Both starting quarterbacks for these two AFC North teams availability is up in the air heading into Sunday.

For the Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger's sprained foot suffered against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9 looks to have him out of the lineup. With Landry Jones looking to be the starter, the Steelers are just 4.5-point favorites at home. For the Browns, Luke McCown is nursing sore ribs and the team might turn to Johnny Manziel to try and pull the upset in front of the Steelers' faithful.

With so much uncertainty, it is worth seeing who the experts think will win this rivalry game in Week 10.

At ESPN.com, the largest panel of all expert panels, it is a rare unanimous panel selection in favor of Pittsburgh. The same can be said about the experts at FOXSports.com. Both sites, and their experts, see the Steelers are the team who will head into Week 11 victorious.

For those looking for some love for the Browns, look no further than the experts here at SB Nation. Of the 6 experts who make selections, two of the six think the Browns will pull the upset in the Steel City and crushing the Steelers' chances of a midseason push to the postseason. At CBSSports.com, they are certainly leaning in the Steelers' favor, but there is a lone expert who likes the Browns in this AFC North grudge match.

At NFL Pick Watch, a website which takes all expert picks across the internet and compiles them into one easy-to-find location, they find 80-percent of experts taking the Steelers to hold serve at home and advance their record to 6-4 as they head into the bye week.

Either way, the Steelers are not only favored to win the game by the point spread, but are also favored by the experts. Week 10 is a big game for both teams involved, and the Steelers are certainly favored to be victorious.
