The Pittsburgh Steelers will compete in the final game of the Wild Card Round of the playoffs in one hour. They will host the Cleveland Browns, who they played just a week ago in the final week of the regular season. Their will be several players and personnel unable to play today due to the Reserve/COVID list, including Cleveland’s head coach, Kevin Stefanski.
Returning for the Steelers will be Matt Feiler and Robert Spillane. It will be interesting to see the snap share at left guard with Feiler returning and Dotson playing so well off the bench. A similar story playing out with Robert Spillane’s return with Avery Williamson and Vince Williams playing the majority of the snaps recently.
If the Steelers win this game, they would go on to play against the Buffalo Bills, whereas the Browns would go to Kansas City to play the Chiefs.
