Browns aim to spoil Steelers' division title hopes

The storyline
A year ago, the Browns, with Brady Quinn at QB no less, knocked their hated rivals from the playoffs with a big Thursday night win. Could they knock the Steelers from the AFC North title this time around?

Why you should watch
Peyton Hillis has slowed down the stretch and the Steelers have the best run defense in the NFL, though, maybe he has one last surprise. Colt McCoy is scrappy outside the pocket. This could be Eric Mangini's swan song with the Browns, a regime that lasted a year longer than pretty much anyone expected.
