Your Pittsburgh Steelers head out on the road again to take on the St. Louis Rams to complete the first half of their NFC West opponents’ schedule. The Steelers are looking to stack their first win of the season from last week with a back-to-back victory while the Rams are looking to rebound from taking a road loss against Washington last week.
This game will see the much-anticipated return of running back Le’Veon Bell to the lineup, while second-year linebacker Ryan Shazier is ruled out with a shoulder injury. The Steelers defense, who got five sacks last week against Colin Kaepernick, will look to continue on their aggressive trend of getting after the quarterback.
The Steelers offense will look to keep rolling along after seemingly having their way with the San Francisco defense much of the game last week but will have Aaron Donald and Chris Long to worry about on the Rams defensive line.
The game could be a high-scoring affair being played in the dome, but it’s most likely going to be won or lost in the trenches with first and second round draft pick pedigrees on both lines for both teams. Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward, a first round pick from 2011, has complete confidence in the Steelers’ offensive winning the trench battle.
“It all depends on their offensive line and our offensive line. I’m going to take our offensive line vs. anybody, so we expect to win week in and week out.” – Cameron Heyward
