Friday Factoid: Browns vs. Steelers Week 10 edition

New, comments

The 5-4 Pittsburgh Steelers take on the 2-7 Cleveland Browns on Sunday in an AFC showdown at Heinz Field.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

It's the battle of the century as Pittsburgh Steelers back up quarterback Landry Jones takes on the formidable Cleveland Browns.. uh.. um.. either not-the-starter, 2014 first-round draft pick Johnny Manziel or the spry 36-year-old Josh McCown.

OK, so maybe this won't be the game of the century, but it could prove to be more exciting than it otherwise would have been since Steelers starter Ben Roethlisberger is still out with the injury he sustained en route to his team's Week 10 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Even if the starting quarterbacks in the game don't generate a lot of interest, and even though the Browns are floundering this season (again), the match up is still an important one between to AFC North competitors. Let's take a look at a few facts about the two teams ahead of Sunday's game.
