"If Baker gets out of that pocket or gets the time that he needs against that blitz, look out. Because Pittsburgh has been burned quite a few times." - @PhilSimmsQB on Baker Mayfield vs. Pittsburgh Defense pic.twitter.com/GZfdJZwkM4

This Steelers team is dangerous, with one of the better offensive lines in the NFL, and a good set of skill players. This season, the Browns have been equipped with the best coaching they've had in the 2.0 era, and the offensive line is also ready to face the pass rush.
My issue from this game comes with how Baker Mayfield will handle pressure, as he's often running out of clean pockets and straight into pressure this season. I think the Steelers exploit that to a degree here, so hopefully, Stefanski has some tricks up his sleeve to negate this.
Hunt will be largely held in check as he was last week. Just feels like the Browns are dealing with too many injury issues to think they win this game, but I think it's going to be close for 4 quarters and the hook here with +3.5 is the deciding factor for me as I think it's a 3 point game either way. Taking the 3.5 points.
CLEVELAND BROWNS INJURY UPDATE: Browns WRs Odell Beckham (illness) and Jarvis Landry (hips, ribs) are expected to play in Week 6 against the Steelers.
Beckham was sent home from practice on Thursday after falling ill with a non-COVID related illness. Two days of negative test results confirmed this and Beckham was cleared for action on Saturday. Landry was held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday while dealing with multiple injuries. The Browns are fortunate to have both on the field for their Week 6 matchup versus the Steelers. Pittsburgh's vaunted defense has allowed just 6.6 yards per pass attempt and Baker Mayfield has looked shaky to start the year. Beckham projects as a WR2 this week while Landry can't be pushed any higher than a WR3.
