The #Browns are in if they win, and will need help getting in if they lose. #An additional path is for the #Colts to lose the #Jaguars.

#Watt, a leading candidate for NFL #Defensive #Player of the #Year, leads the NFL with 15 sacks and is a load for any team to handle. #Heyward led the #Steelers with eight tackles in the first meeting, a 38-7 #Pittsburgh victory, and had a quarterback hit. #Pouncey is one of the best centers in the NFL.

#Steelers coach #Mike #Tomlin said #Tuesday that “the vast majority’’ of his players besides #Roethlisberger would play, but now he’s giving more his star players a break before the playoffs.
