Fox News Flash top headlines for December 1 are here.

Their rematch comes just 17 days after Pittsburgh's 21-7 loss in Cleveland that ended with Pouncey punching and kicking Myles Garrett following his fight with Mason Rudolph.

With Pittsburgh and Cleveland set to meet for the second time on Sunday at Heinz Field, one Steelers official told ESPN that Kitchens wearing the shirt to film about Fred Rogers could be seen as more of a slight because the television icon was from Pittsburgh.

Here's a quick refresher: As the November 14 game was winding down, the two teams mixed it up, with Myles Garrett of the Browns hitting Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph over the head with his own helmet.

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

Cleveland defeated Pittsburgh, 21-7, on November 14.

Rudolph, who had appeared to attempt to rip off Garrett's own helmet, has since been benched in favour of Devlin Hodges and will not start on Sunday. Kitchens did not intend for anyone to see it and realizes it's not a good look.

GV Art & Design, which makes the shirt, also posted additional photos of Kitchens sporting it. "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.
