The Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) and Green Bay Packers (2-1) battle in an AFC-NFC matchup in a nationally-televised game in the later-afternoon window. These are two teams going in opposite directions, and the Steelers are in desperate need of a victory to turn things around and key pace in an ultra-competitive AFC North Division. Playing in Lambeau Field against the perennial contender Packers is a tough place to get a turnaround.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers Predictions

The Steelers opened the season with a win against the Super Bowl contender Buffalo Bills in their place, and Pittsburgh looked like a team which might need to be taken very seriously. Losses at home against the Las Vegas Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals, in which the offense looked very, very listless, has people putting down their Terrible Towels to wring their hands, something we don’t see from Yinzers very often.

The Packers fans know all about worry. After Green Bay was dusted in Jacksonville in a neutral-site game against the New Orleans Saints, 38-3, people were worried about Aaron Rodgers, and his commitment to the team, and a ton of other concerns about the run game, the defense, the coaching staff, etc. A Monday Night Football win against the Detroit Lions quelled some concerns, and confidence is back after a road win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football in a game Rodgers and the offense looked terrific.

This game two weeks ago looked like it might be a blowout in favor of the road team. Now, the Packers are expected to win this game on their home turf, and they’re likely going to win it by double digits.

The Steelers have seen QB Ben Roethlisberger age dramatically in the past couple of injury-plagued seasons, and he has the look of a quarterback who is overstaying his welcome. The offense has managed just 308.3 total yards of offense per game, good for just 25th in the NFL, but that’s not all Big Ben’s fault.
