View Full Version : Steelers 'Anxious' To Play Browns

The rivalry between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns goes back for decades, but another chapter will be written on Sunday.

The Steelers are anxious to get back to work. That feeling may be felt more by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who will make his first start of the season.

Coach Mike Tomlin said that any time you come off a bye week, it gives you a chance to evaluate what you have done.

He also said bye weeks leave teams anxious because you didn't participate in the most recent week's games.

While the Steelers quarterback situation appears to be resolved with Roethlisberger back, the Browns may be forced to start a rookie under center.

Seneca Wallace has a sprained ankle and Jake Delhomme also has an ankle injury, which means that Colt McCoy could start his first NFL game Sunday afternoon.

For Tomlin, it doesn't matter who the Browns' quarterback will be because Cleveland also has a good running game.

Peyton Hillis has 350 rushing yards and four touchdowns this season for the Browns.

For Pittsburgh, Trai Essex is the only player Tomlin listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Browns at Heinz Field.
