Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
The Steelers’ defense has been on fire, ranking third in Football Outsiders’ DVOA, behind only the Patriots and 49ers.
A lot of Pittsburgh’s success can be attributed to Minkah Fitzpatrick, who the Steelers acquired from the Dolphins in Week 3 — he’s been a game-changer for this defense. He now has an interception in three straight games, and his chances of making it four are elevated given he’s facing Baker Mayfield, who has thrown the second-most this season (12).
Mayfield will face a ton of pressure against this elite defensive front from the Steelers, who lead the league with a pressure rate of 30.6%. Mayfield has been terrible with a QB Rating of 42.3 while under pressure this season, which ranks 34th per Pro Football Focus.
Taking the Steelers +2.5 is pretty tempting, but with 62% of the tickets coming in on them, the line hasn’t budged.
