Week 14 – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals

Score: 31-28 Pittsburgh

The Steelers will sweep the Bengals this season, just like last season, unwilling to go on a 3 game losing streak. This game will be looked upon as a large one, possibly with playoff implications, and Pittsburgh will come out on top. Expect it to be a very good game, with some great highlights, and a nail biter to the finish. These two teams have an interesting rivalry that might not be as bloody as the Ravens and Steelers, but sure has some fire to it.

Week 15 – Denver Broncos @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Score: 34-28 Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh increases their streak, finishing off Denver in a fairly high scoring affair. Last season, Peyton Manning seemed to really regress toward the end of the season, and I wouldn’t be shocked if it happened again. Expect Manning’s age to play a factor in this game, and it doesn’t help when the man doesn’t have any feeling in his fingers. Overall, the game could go either way, and will probably come down to how the two offenses perform.

Week 16 – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens

Score: 27-17 Baltimore

As stated before, the Ravens and Steelers tend to split the series, and will probably each get their respective wins at home. This game could really be important in terms of who makes the playoffs, and the Ravens always tend to be fairly clutch, so they could definitely fly away with this game.

Week 17 – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns

Score: 28-3 Pittsburgh

At this point, Pittsburgh will probably be fighting for a playoff position while Cleveland will be looking at a top-5 draft pick. I see Pittsburgh having a really good game all-around, and kind of easing off the gas toward the end of the game, as they start to pull away. The defense will look strong heading potentially into the playoffs, and the team will be ready to continue into January.

Overall Record: 11-5

The Pittsburgh Steelers have the toughest schedules in the league, but that could very well be good for them, with their ability to play up to their opponents. A lot of these games they have could go either way, so don’t expect a finite 11-5 record to be the case for them. They could just as easily go 13-3 or 8-8. Only time will tell the fate of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but fans will be on the edge of their seat, as the Steelers begin their journey on the stairway to seven Super Bowl victories.
