PITTSBURGH (93.7 The FAN) - Nick Wright of FS1's "First Things First" may have picked Ben Roethlisberger to be league MVP and the Steelers to win the Super Bowl last year, but that was last year and he has a very different prediction for this year.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Joining Andrew Fillipponi on The PM Team, Wright explained his claim that the Browns will win the AFC North and go 10-6.

But first, why the change of heart on the Steelers from last year to now?

"I think they lost the best player on their team," Wright said about Antonio Brown.

On the Browns, Wright said they are going to be "awesome" but they aren't without their faults.

"There is legitimate concern about their head coach [Freddie Kitchens] because their head coach 12 months ago, the highest he had ever gone was running backs coach."

That being said, Wright is a big believe in Mike Tomlin.

"In any fair representation, he's one of the top six coaches in football.  One of the six guys in the league that if he got fired today, would have three job offers by dinnertime."
