The Steelers will use their bye week to regroup at third place in the AFC North.

The Steelers hit their bye week at a disappointing 1-2, but they'll try to regroup before the Eagles travel across the state for a date at Heinz Field in Week 5. They'll sit back and watch their AFC North foes beat up on each other on Thursday night. The Browns hit the road for a Thursday night game against the Ravens, who have to turn around on a short week after a brutal struggle with the Patriots on Sunday night. Cleveland is the one team behind Pittsburgh in the standings, and it's likely they'll stay there for the season but the short week could give them a shot against Baltimore.

Cincinnati, which is also 2-1, will travel to Jacksonville for a game against the Jaguars. The Bengals are early favorites, and both they and the Ravens have a golden opportunity to gain a half game on the Steelers. The complete schedule for Week 4:

Thursday, Sept. 27

  • Browns vs. Ravens, 8:20 p.m. NFL Network

Sunday, Sept. 30

Monday, October 1
