Deadspin’s 2021 NFL Wild Card picks you can bank on: Day 2

Last week, Kevin Stefanski and other Browns players and staff tested positive for COVID-19. Stefanski will not coach, and a number of players will not participate in tonight’s matchup. Will the game go on? Absolutely. Have you been following the NFL this season?

With Stefanski out, Cleveland has promoted special teams coordinator Mike Priefer to the role of POS… I mean HC.

Pittsburgh will have a normal roster and coaching staff. Plus, Ben Roethlisberger will be back after a week of rest.

Cleveland hasn’t been in the playoffs since Nelly released Hot in Here. How will they fair without a coach or any recent experience?

The Pick: Not well. The Browns have given us a regular season of unexpected wins, losses, and bad beats. Sure, the Steelers have looked shaky down the stretch. But they’re a pretty good bet after going 10-6 ATS on the season. What about Cleveland? They’re 6-10, the worst ATS record of any playoff team. I like Pittsburgh’s chances.

What's your reaction?

In Love
