NFL Week 11: Thursday Night Football

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns, FirstEnergy Stadium, 8:20 PM, FOX/NFLN (Browns -3, O/U: 41.5)
The Steelers defense has come alive with Minkah Fitzpatrick has been explosive since coming on from Miami. He’s helped force 8 of the teams 26 turnovers since the trade and last week had a fumble return for 43 yards and a TD last week as well as a 96 yard pick 6 two weeks ago. For the Steelers, that’s an excellent trade giving up a first round pick which has a high bust rate probability for a “for sure” stud safety. The defense under him has found life as they have the league’s third most sacks in the league and second in the league in takeaways. They can barely get by with the offense they have, Mason Rudolph is capable and Conner can grind out a solid game.
Baker has been exactly what the Browns don’t need, a distraction but they won last week, in an upset fashion over a tough Bills team. Kareem Hunt made his debut and looked half decent carrying the ball 4 time for 30 yards along with 7 catches for 44 yards. He limited looks but made the most of them. The defense hasn’t matched up to what they look like on paper. They have given up a ton of points and a ton of rushing yards. Landry and OBJ looked good last week so hopefully Baker can continue the little bit of momentum they have.
Take the Steelers to cover and win in the under, Steelers 21-17.
