Keys to Victory: What we're watching vs. the Steelers

Steelers vs. Browns Time TV schedule and game information

MYLES BEHIND: Garrett is expected to miss several weeks with a right ankle sprain the Browns hope doesn't bother the No. 1 overall pick all season.

Again, I'm not in the least concerned with the outcome as Pittsburgh will win; I'll watch the game and only pay attention to how the Steelers will perform at a few spots.

New York Giants offensive tackle Ereck Flowers (74) stops Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett (95) in the first half of a preseason game, August 21 in Cleveland. He reported healthy for training camp in July. This is the second time Garrett has been hurt as a pro, and those setbacks came after he was limited during his junior year at Texas A&M by a badly sprained left ankle.

On Thursday morning, the team said Garrett has a high ankle sprain.

The Steelers opened as 8.5-point favorites; the total was 47 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

Forty-nine of the 59 players on the Browns active roster (counting those on injured reserve) have been acquired by the new regime over the past year and a half: 20 in the past two drafts, four via trades, 13 as free agents and 12 off waivers.

The Browns dominated this rivalry at its inception, posting their longest win streak of the series and winning eight consecutive games and 16 of their first 18 match ups.

Pope Hopes Trump Will Rethink DACA Decision on Pro-Life Grounds
During the interview, Francis admitted that he's unfamiliar with the particulars of DACA , or with Trump's decision . But the other reason, he said, is nearly always money.

He is a physical freak at 6-foot-4, 272 pounds, with the ability to bend his frame to turn the corner around the left tackle and the speed to chase down plays. I know that he'll do great in his career. Garrett was easily the most athletic defender on the Cleveland defensive line, and the Browns defense will suffer in his absence. Go back to 2000 and Tim Couch, another first overall pick, broke his thumb in practice when his hand hit a defensive player's helmet.

Continuing last year's tradition I will continue to note whether or not the Browns are favored going into a given contest.

But for Garrett's injury to occur the week before the opener makes it seem like someone somewhere with some special power has a Browns doll filled with pins and interchangeable jerseys and a sick smile on his or her face.

Ben Roethlisberger doesn't have to be told that the regular season is about to get under way.

Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers head into Cleveland in Week 1.

"I can't explain it, you're not prepared for it but you're excited", Wilcox said. "Next man up. I know those guys are prepared".

"My bold prediction, I really feel like Myles can make the Pro Bowl his rookie year". "So when you're trying to get him down, just try to rake the ball out when you're doing it".
