As the Pittsburgh Steelers lead the Cleveland Browns going into halftime, Steeler fans can’t help but keep one eye on the Jets and Bills match-up. The 9-6 Steelers do not control their own destiny, as they need a win and a Jets loss to earn the final wild card spot.

In a game where Antonio Brown has already caught ten passes for 150 yards the Steelers are trying to control their own destiny as best they can.

On a down note for Pittsburgh, running back  DeAngelo Williams left the game with a right ankle injury.

During his halftime interview, Coach Mike Tomlin emphasized that the Steelers weren’t looking for “style points”, they just want to get the win

One thing working in the favor of Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers, is the fact that the Jets have to face their former Coach, Rex Ryan.

Rex and his Bills have so far done what the Steelers need them to do in controlling their matchup against their New York state rivals.

At the half, Steelers are on top 14-9 over the Browns and the Bills are leading the Jets 16-7.

For now, Steelers fans are forced to sit back and root for two teams this Sunday afternoon. This Steeler fan just found a blue towel to wave with my terrible towel.
