In the uncomfortable position of needing help to make the playoffs, the Steelers are sending good vibes the Cleveland Browns' way.
The Steelers can clinch the AFC North with a win Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals coupled with a Cleveland Browns win over the Baltimore Ravens.
lers (8-6-1) relinquished the North after losing 31-28 to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, their fourth loss in five games. Meanwhile, the Ravens (9-6) have won five of their last six games but face a hot Browns team that's riding a three-game winning streak.
The Steelers also can make the playoffs with a tie against the Bengals and a Ravens loss, or a win over Cincinnati combined with a tie between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. The Browns last defeated the Ravens at Baltimore in 2015.
