NFL wraps up season with Week 17

FOX Sports NFL reporter Jen Hale on games and players to watch.

Pittsburgh Steelers star JuJu Smith-Schuster is hoping the team can play the spoiler role in their game against the rival Cleveland Browns on Sunday in the 2020 season finale.

The Browns need a win to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2002 season. A victory would also give them 11 wins on the season — the most since 1994 when Bill Belichick was the head coach.

Smith-Schuster told reporters Friday that a Browns win isn’t going to be an easy feat.

"It’s a lot of motivation. I think for a lot of us, it’s more so being an AFC North division team, and knocking them out of the playoffs," he said, via Steelers Depot.

"Obviously, we want to go out and win every game, but our mindset’s to go in here, win the game, and go home. But they’re a good team, so I can’t wait to see what they can do, and what we can do to Cleveland."
