Several Pittsburgh Steelers made strong statements as they arrived at Heinz Field for the rematch with the Browns.

Another Steelers player was a little less subtle, wearing a sweatshirt showing cartoon kid in a Steelers helmet urinating on the Browns. The Browns said Kitchens did not intend for anyone to see it and "understands it's not a good look".

Center Maurkice Pouncey was suspended for three games - appealed down to two - for his role in the fight between quarterback Mason Rudolph and defensive end Myles Garrett in the first meeting between the two teams less than three weeks ago.

Pouncey and Garrett won't be playing and it isn't likely that Rudolph will be, either.

The Browns could have defensive end Olivier Vernon back against the Steelers (6-5) in the second game between the rivals in 17 days. "The rivalry has been revived now, because of what happened in the last game, so I'm looking forward to what's going to happen there", Steelers fan and Pittsburgh native Patrick Phillips told Fox 8 Cleveland.

A Browns spokesman told ESPN the shirt was a gift from the coach's daughters and meant "as a joke", and that Kitchens wore the shirt while out with his family to go see the movie "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood".

The rematch kicks off at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
