10-0 Pittsburgh Steelers Remaining Schedule
- versus Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 1
- versus Washington Football Team Dec. 6
- at Buffalo Bills on Dec. 13
- at Cincinnati Bengals Dec. 21
- versus Indianapolis Colts Dec. 27
- at Cleveland Browns Jan. 3
What are the games the Steelers should win?
On Tuesday, the Ravens could be without Lamar Jackson, tight-end Mark Andrews, and their two starting running backs, Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins. Even at full strength, Baltimore’s defense has gotten shredded the past few weeks.
Pittsburgh should easily handle the Ravens. They should also beat the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns. The Bengals aren’t nearly as good without Joe Burrow as they were with the Heisman Trophy winning rookie. The Browns can do one thing well, rush the football. No way Cleveland’s defense stops Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense.
What are the toughest games on the Steelers remaining schedule?
Nor will the Indianapolis Colts. Even though the Colts got drubbed by the Tennessee Titans in Week 12, the loss came on the heels of an overtime victory against top NFC squad Green Bay. The Week 11 win against the Packers had to have taken something out of Indianapolis. Indy’s defense remains one of the best in the league.
Surprisingly, the team the Steelers must worry about the most could be the Washington Football Team. The WFT has won two in a row. The defensive line is fantastic. Montez Sweat and Chase Young can dominate any offensive line, even Pittsburgh’s. If you’re looking to play a team to upset the Steelers on the moneyline, Washington might be that team.
What are the Steelers’ true Super Bowl chances?
At +500, Pittsburgh offers fair odds to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Unless they lose to Buffalo, Indianapolis, and Washington, feel good about yourself if you back the Steelers at +500.
However, should Pittsburgh lose 3 of their next 5 games, we should consider them a pretender. 8 of the Steelers’ 10 wins have come against the Giants, Broncos, Texans, Eagles, Browns, Cowboys, Bengals, and Jaguars.
That’s a lot of wins against subpar teams. If Pittsburgh does go 16-0, though, consider them as much of a favorite to win the Super Bowl as the Kansas City Chiefs.
