Mike Tomlin has left that fracas in the past. The coach told reporters Tuesday he’s not focused on retribution, but on a win Sunday when his 4-0 Steelers host the 4-1 Cleveland Browns.

“We’re not looking for that low-hanging fruit or that reality TV storyline,” Tomlin said. “This is a big game here in 2020.”

It is indeed a big game. Pittsburgh is 4-0 for the first time since 1979 — a year in which the Steelers won the Super Bowl — while Cleveland is off to its best start since 1994, back when Bill Belichick was roaming its sideline. They’re both entangled with the Baltimore Ravens near the top of an incredibly competitive AFC North.

“We love being in the kitchen,” Tomlin said. “And AFC North ball is in the kitchen. It’s hot in the North.”

Hot, indeed. Cleveland and Pittsburgh have each ripped off four straight wins, with the Browns and Steelers both ranking in the top 10 in points per game (Cleveland is fourth, Pittsburgh 10th) and in the upper half of the league in offensive yards per game. Pittsburgh owns a better defense, ranking third in the NFL in yards allowed per game at 301.5.
