The Browns and the Steelers have a long a storied rivalry, one of the longest running in all of football. While most fans know they are supposed to hate their division rivals many don't know the history between the two teams so here's a brief rundown for you. The two teams have played each other a total of 124 times and the overall record is probably a lot closer than most Steelers fans believe. The Steelers have the lead by only 9 games with a 66-57 record all time against the Browns. The reason this is so surprising is because for most Steelers fans, Pittsburgh has dominated the series in recent years. Pittsburgh has swept the season series  2-0 an incredible  11 times since 2000, a feat they are looking to repeat this year as they take on the Browns at home this week already up 1-0 on them this season. A win this weekend would also make it 5 straight victories for the Steelers, again a clear sign of their recent dominance of the Browns. To make matters worse for Browns fans the teams have only met twice in the playoffs, and the Steelers own a perfect 2-0 record in that aspect of the rivalry. The last game dates back to 2003 when the Steelers won by a field goal 36-33. The Steelers also dominate in terms of individual accomplishments in the rivalry. They currently lead in most passing yards in a game,Big Ben recorded a 417 yard performance back in 2009, rushing yards in a game Willie Parker ran roughshod over the Browns in 2006 racking up 223 yards, and Buddy Dial held the receiving yard lead with 235 dating back to 1961 until Josh Gordon surpassed him(237) last year. Modern day Steelers fans have enjoyed an extended period of dominance in recent years and the Steelers will look to continue the trend this Sunday.
