NFL Twitter has seen enough of the Browns and Steelers. Their Monday Night Football matchup turned into proof that neither deserves to be in the playoffs.

It has not been a pretty season for either the Cleveland Browns or the Pittsburgh Steelers. NFL fans on Twitter are just thankful it’s almost over.

Monday Night Football was part a celebration of Ben Roethlisberger’s tenure with the Steelers and part a reminder of why both teams involved have no business playing in the postseason.

Cleveland was eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday. Pittsburgh is technically still in the hunt but their chances are slim.

NFL Twitter is done with the Browns and Steelers

With or without playoff elimination, the regular season isn’t over just yet. The Steelers still have to travel to play the Ravens. The Browns host the Bengals to close things out.

Pittsburgh can still end the campaign with a winning record. Cleveland needed a victory on Monday night to give themselves that chance.

It’s possible when they meet again next season the AFC North rivals could each have new quarterbacks.

The Steelers certainly acted like Monday night would be Roethlisberger’s final game at Heinz Field. The Browns still have Baker Mayfield under contract for 2022 but they may be tempted to make a change at quarterback if a trade partner turns up.
