Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers History

Part of the fire that burns in the rivalry between Pittsburgh and Cleveland is that the cities where the franchises reside are both blue-collar midwestern towns. Fans often make the two-hour, 135-mile trip from one city to another to root for their team in these tightly contested divisional matchups. While Cleveland dominated the rivalry against the Steelers in the 1950s and 1960s 31-9, Pittsburgh has had a series of dominant runs since the 1970s.

Between 1970–1979, Pittsburgh won 15 out of 20 games against Cleveland on the way to four Super Bowl titles (1974, 1975, 1978, and 1979). Cleveland turned the script somewhat in the ’80s, going 12-8 against Pittsburgh, including a 51-0 win in 1989, marking the largest defeat in Steelers franchise history.

Between 1990 and 2023, Pittsburgh has held a record of 48-14-1 against the Browns. Pittsburgh has been a model of stability, only having three head coaches between 1969 and 2023: Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher and Mike Tomlin (each of which has at least one Super Bowl championship).
