That is one hell of a win by the Browns. Of course, it didn't all go smoothly - it never does for the Browns - but that must have felt really good for them. Well done.

Wasn't that much of a surprise, Steelers were going backwards 2nd half of the season once everyone figured them out for not having a running game. I'm glad the Browns won because I backed them quite heavily.

I actually like Baker, too bad the Browns will be going down to the Chiefs next week. Giving up 37 points even with a win against the Steelers, Mahomes and company will have a field day against that defence.

The defence that won them the game with their turnovers?

Mainly through bad throws by Ben, Mahomes won't make as many mistakes and give those chances. When Ben got it right they couldn't stop him, Over 500 yards through passing.

It was Big Ben that caused the turnovers.

The BBC's Ben Collins 'essential' guide to the playoffs the other day didn't mention the Saints once. That added to Jason and Osi being pretty much wrong about pretty much everything all year, I think the BBC should look at some hiring and firing themselves this off season.

The awkwardly forced 'bantz' on the BBC's NFL coverage makes it unwatchable. Thankfully I've got the NFL so I don't have to endure it any longer.

Most of those games this weekend were not great quality - Rams@Seahawks was chronic. The Bears were awful yesterday. How they made the playoffs is beyond me.

Packers and Chiefs won't have seen anything they need to worry about too much. I think the number one seeds will both make it to the Superbowl.

Pretty obvious who the finalists finalists will be. I'm no fan of either but it would be nice to see Aaron Rodgers win another one. There'll be plenty of time for Mahomes to add to his tally in the years to come.

Decent yardage numbers, yes, but it can't be forgotten that the Browns played soft zone in the second half to avoid giving up too many big plays.

It also can't be forgotten the Steelers don't have a running game so they have no option but to throw all the time. Face it, the Browns won't beat KC but I'm pleased they got as far as they did given how long it's been.

the stealers tried to run too much in this game because the browns defence was in big ben's face too much early on and they had to resort to getting it away quickly.

I realise he's a brand in his own right and people with only a superficial interest in the sport will have heard of him, but why does the BBC always have to mention Tom Brady in every single story? It's not exactly a surprise his team won considering who they played.

What I can't stand is when people mention Tom Brady in the comments and the replies to those comments.
