Is it me or has the NFL been taking a backseat to wild NBA trade speculations and MLB signing this week? I feel like the rest of America is with me when I say week 14 of the NFL doesn't really do too much for me and the game that we have on Thursday Night doesn't help the case. Let's get this game right, and head into Sunday/Monday with a winning record. Click for the pick after the jump...
Thursday Night Football
Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers (-14), 8:20 ET - NFL
The Cleveland Browns simply do not beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. That statement is made very clear by Vegas in the point spread of this game - two touchdowns. Quite frankly, I can't disagree with them. The Browns have lost 14 of their last 15 to the Steelers and have not won in Pittsburgh since 2003. The Steelers are coming off their most impressive win of the season after thrashing the Bengals 35-7 behind two Rashard Mendenhall rushing touchdowns and 28 Points in the Second Quarter. On paper this game shouldn't be close. Unless the Browns magically swoop in to sign Lebron James for this game there is no way that they will be able to play Ketchup (get it because the game is at Heinz field!?) with the Steelers. Take the Steelers and lay the two touchdowns at Heinz.
Last Week: 7-9
