Cold and windy in Cleveland

November, 24, 2013
CLEVELAND -- It is teeth-chattering cold here and the wind whipping off Lake Erie cuts right through you even on the short walk from the parking lot to the stadium. It is not as cold as it was here in 2009, but the wind is such that I walked backward at several points as I made my to the stadium.

I will be stunned if Le'Veon Bell doesn't get at least 20 carries today as it is that kind of day. Bell fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited as the Browns are No. 5 in total defense, and they will be tough to run against.

But all signs point to the Steelers feeding Bell early and often and for the AFC rivals to wage a defensive struggle. Ben Roethlisberger's history against the Browns is too much to ignore, which is why I am sticking with my pick of the Steelers over the Browns.

I'll go with Steelers 13, Browns 10.
