The Week 17 matchup between the bottom two teams in the AFC North is also between two teams that have a reasonable shot at winning the division as well. A win by the Cincinnati Bengals over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday would eliminate the Browns and make the Steelers playoff chase far more difficult.
The two teams released their final injury report with a total of four players out for the game and three questionable.
With two extra days between games, surprising to see three players out for Cleveland. Not having two of their starting safeties again could hurt the team in both phases of the game.
Getting Hunt back could be very helpful for the team’s struggling offense.
