The Browns and Steelers will be featured on another edition of Thursday Night Football. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses in week two, but in entirely different ways. The Steelers could not get their offense going at any point and played from behind all game. Nelson Agholor came down with a 44-yard pass from Mac Jones to close the first half up 10-3 on the home Steelers.

The Patriots would end up grabbing a 17-6 lead in the third quarter, and while their defense bolstered down, the offense could not put up enough points. Pat Freiermuth and Diontae Johnson would haul in the 8-yard touchdown reception and successful 2-point conversion, respectively.

Mitch Trubisky had a pedestrian outing with only 168 passing yards on 21-33 and had both a touchdown and interception. Mac Jones went 21-35 and threw for 252 with a lone touchdown and one interception. Damien Harris added one touchdown on 71 rushing yards.

The Browns were up 31-17…sorry 30-17 due to a missed extra point. Kickers, am I right? Up 13 points instead of 14 with just 1:55 left in the game would prove to be a big occurrence, because just 93 seconds later the Jets would storm back and kick the winning extra point. Joe Flacco connected with a 66-yard bomb to Corey Davis. An onside kick later and the Jets were in business. Joe Flacco connected with Garrett Wilson on a 15-yard prolonged slant and pulled off the upset.

The New York Jets were underdogs of 6.5 points and came through with both the ATS cover and +300 moneyline win. Now the Browns try to rebound in week three. FirstEnergy Stadium along with Brownie the Elf will look to provide a backdrop among the AFC North rivals.

The Cleveland Browns come in as favorites laying 3.5 points. The Steelers catching the field goal and hook may be worth a look. Both the Steelers and Browns are priced at -110 on the spread. For those confident in the Steelers, the moneyline provides a little better value. The Steelers are +175 on the moneyline, and a $100 wager would net a profit of $175.

The Steelers did not cover at home against the Patriots, but that was their only game in their last four that they did not cover. The Steelers also arrive in this game covering four straight games against fellow AFC North teams. The Browns also failed to cover on Sunday, and that brings their current ATS run to 3-8 in their last 11. The Browns have done well on Thursday nights games, covering eight of their last 11 TNF broadcasts.

The last six meetings between these franchises have been dominated by the Steelers against the spread, as they have covered five in that span. The underdog, the Steelers in this game, also comes in with covering four straight games in this series.

The total is listed at 40. Both the over and under are priced at -110. The number hung is a little low, but much of that has to do with a struggling Steelers offense. In two games they average just 16.5 points, and even off the five forced turnovers against the Bengals, were only able to put up 23 points in an overtime thriller.

BetMGM Sportsbook will have all the spreads, totals, first half lines, second half lines and props. BetMGM will also have a ton of live betting opportunities. Remember to sign up using the VIBONUS code to redeem the first bet risk free up to $1,000.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
