Steelers vs. Browns live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ game


There’s nothing quite like getting to settle a divisional rivalry under the bright lights in prime time.

The rivalry between the Steelers and Browns has gone largely in Pittsburgh’s favor: the Steelers lead the all-time series 79-61-1, including postseason games. But the Browns have made things interesting in recent years. While Pittsburgh swept the series in 2021, the teams split in 2020 and the Browns won the AFC wild-card matchup between the squads that season.

This edition will look a little different than usual. Both teams have fill-in quarterbacks. The Steelers have turned to Mitch Trubisky with 2022 first-round pick Kenny Pickett waiting for his chance to start following the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger. The Browns will send out Jacoby Brissett, who will be the team’s starter until Deshaun Watson returns from his 11-game suspension in Week 13.

Both teams have had mixed results this season. They both pulled off Week 1 victories, with the Steelers beating the Bengals in overtime and the Browns edging the Panthers in the final seconds. Both fell in Week 2, to the Patriots and Jets, respectively.
