No team wants to give another team their first playoff win in nearly 25 years, especially if that "other team" is a division rival. Yet that's exactly what the Steelers did for the Browns last season when Cleveland beat Pittsburgh 48-37 in the wild card round of the playoffs. Sunday, these teams meet for the first time since that matchup. 

The Steelers (3-3) are looking to grab their third straight win when they go into Cleveland in week eight and they hope the bye week won't squash any momentum they worked so hard to start. After winning their first game of the season against the Bills, the Steelers went on to lose their next three. They were able to bounce back with a 27-19 win over the Broncos, then just squeaking out a 23-20 overtime win over the Seahawks. 

Ben Roethlisberger has certainty had better years than what he's put together so far this season, but rookie running back Najee Harris has helped keep this offense on point. Harris leads the team with 632 all-purpose yards and has a total of four touchdowns.

The Browns (4-3) have fallen on hard times as the injury bug has bitten their roster hard! Last week several players including Baker Mayfield, Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb were forced to sit out the teams' 17-14 win over the Broncos due to injury. Mayfield is back under center today and Chubb is active as well. Running back D'Ernest Johnson will be the Browns RB2 today fresh off his 146-yard performance last week. 

The Browns are a 5-point favorite against the Steelers. The over/under is 43.

Steelers Inactives: Dwayne Haskins (QB), Melvin Ingram III (LB), Ahkello Witherspoon (CB), Buddy Johnson (LB), Zach Banner (OL), Eric Ebron (TE)

Browns Inactives: Donovan Peoples-Jones (WR), Denzel Ward (CB), A.J. Green (CB), Richard LeCounte III (S), Takkarist McKinley (DE), Hjalte Froholdt (G), Tommy Togiai (DT)

Steelers vs Browns live streams in the US

In the US, today's Steelers vs Browns is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT Sunday (Oct. 31)

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FOX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

Paramount Plus

Paramount Plus combines what used to be CBS All Access with even more content from the deep ViacomCBS vault. Get access to Survivor and Big Brother episodes, as well as originals like Star Trek: Picard and The Good Fight. And more great stuff is on the way, including Frasier and Criminal Minds revivals.

NFL Sunday Ticket: This game is included in NFL Sunday Ticket, which is available even if you don't have DirecTV.
