Even though it is Week 17, this season especially many teams have something to play for, including the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers have a very slim chance of making the playoffs but you never know what can happen.
In the case of the Cleveland Browns they are not in the playoff race but that doesn’t mean head coach Rob Chudzinski is going to change his starter at quarterback for this week. According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, Chudzinski said that Jason Campbell will get the start on Sunday versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This also means that Brandon Weeden will be the backup and Alex Tanney will be the third quarterback. Jason Campbell has been playing solid football for the Browns since Brian Hoyer went down with injury. So far this season, Campbell has thrown for 1,775 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions with a 77.8 quarterback rating.
But in his last five games, Campbell has been a little rocky with five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Last time, these two teams played each other were on November 24th in Cleveland and the Steelers won 27-11. In that game, Campbell threw for 124 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.
