Tomlin Noncommittal About Lineup for Finale vs. Browns
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mike Tomlin isn't sure how long of a break he wants to give his star players before the postseason begins.
The Pittsburgh Steelers coach is going to wait to determine how much Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and company play during Sunday's regular-season finale against winless Cleveland.
The Steelers (12-3) wrapped up their third AFC North title in four years earlier this month and secured a first-round bye by dominating Houston on Christmas night.
A shot at the top seed and home-field advantage in the playoffs remains a possibility, a scenario the relies almost exclusively on the New York Jets beating New England on the road, something the Jets have done only once in the past decade and even that came in 2008 when Tom Brady was out with a knee injury.
