Asked at his Tuesday press conference why the Browns were able to put together as impressive a performance as they did in their 34-14 victory vs. New England on Sunday, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Cleveland's recent success is no fluke.

"I don't know why everyone is surprised that Cleveland plays well," Tomlin said. "They have a back (Peyton Hillis) that will hurt you really bad. They are always good schematically defensively with their packages and the way they are capable of getting after you. And if they complete manageable third downs, they have a good chance to beat you. That is what the tape showed, quite frankly, not only in the instance of New Orleans (which Cleveland defeated in Week Seven) but also in the instance of New England."

The Steelers host the Patriots on Sunday night. Pittsburgh defeated Cleveland 28-10 in Week Six.
