Per 506sports.com, the areas in purple on the map below will get to see the Steelers vs. Browns game live on CBS at 1:00 PM EST:
- Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam had a stake in the Steelers in 2008, before buying the Browns. Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton was the Steelers' assistant defensive backs coach from 2004-06, and later served as the defensive backs coach from 2007-10.
- Steelers backup QB Bruce Gradkowski formerly started for the Browns. QB Brian Hoyer (on injured reserve) was with the Steelers for part of the 2012 season.
- K Billy Cundiff needs two touchbacks on kickoffs to pass Phil Dawson (30 in 2012) for the most in a season in franchise history.
- WR Josh Gordon needs a 100-yard receiving game to take sole possession of first place for the most by a Brown in a single season with five. Gordon is currently tied with four other players with four. Gordon also needs just 55 receiving yards to surpass his career high of 805 yards set as a rookie in 2012.
- CB Joe Haden needs an interception to record at least one in three straight games. Haden is the last Brown to accomplish that feat as he had one in four straight games in 2010.
- QB Ben Roethlisberger is 15-1 in his career against the Browns.
- The last time these two teams met in the regular season was on December 30, 2012 in Pittsburgh, with the Steelers beating the Browns by a final score of 24-10. QB Thaddeus Lewis was forced into his first career start with the Browns during the final game of the Pat Shurmur era. Although Lewis played relatively well and had the Browns tied with the Steelers at 10-10 in the third quarter, the Steelers closed out the game with 14 unanswered points.
