Antonio Brown is putting the Pittsburgh Steelers' rivalry with the Cleveland Browns on hold to fight the more important battle.

Leading up to Cleveland's Week 17 showdown with the Baltimore Ravens, Brown made some alterations to his No. 84 jersey to show his support for the Browns:

who else has their #84 @browns jersey ready for Sunday? https://t.co/09WIfhCKPM

This is a far cry from the Brown who kicked Cleveland punter Spencer Lanning on a punt return during a game in 2014.

The Steelers need to beat the Cincinnati Bengals and have Baltimore lose to make the playoffs as AFC North champions.

The only other scenario for Pittsburgh to make the postseason is by defeating Cincinnati and hoping the Indianapolis Colts-Tennessee Titans game ends in a tie.

The good news for Brown and the Steelers is Cleveland is finishing the season on a high note. The Browns have won five of their last six games, and they beat the Ravens 12-9 in overtime on Oct. 7.
