Steelers schedule: Predicting each win and loss for Pittsburgh in 2020
Steelers schedule 2020: Weeks 10-12
Week 10 vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Win (5-4)
Eventually, Joe Burrow is going to make a big difference for the Bengals. But even with adding one of the best quarterback prospects the league has seen, the rest of Cincinnati’s roster doesn’t compare to Pittsburgh’s. Combine that with the fact that a rookie QB will be traveling to Pittsburgh to face one of the league’s best defenses from a season ago, and I’ll give this victory to the Steelers.
Week 11 @ Jacksonville Jaguars: Win (6-4)
This is a team that the Steelers historically have had some trouble with – dating back to the times when Bryon Leftwich and David Garrard were the Jaguars quarterbacks in the early-to-mid 2000s. Though they could certainly drop this game on the road, I think Jacksonville will be somewhat capped offensively this season, and they didn’t do a whole lot in the way of improving their offense this year. I think Pittsburgh takes the win on the road.
Week 12 vs. Baltimore Ravens: Loss (6-5)
Baltimore enters the new league year with the second-best Super Bowl odds (+700), courtesy of The Action Network. Stealing one game away from them will be tricky this year. Even with the return of Ben Roethlisberger, I think Pittsburgh could fall against a great Ravens team in Pittsburgh. Baltimore really beefed up their team with an impressive draft class in 2020, and with already having a terrific head coach and the 2019 league MVP, they will be a tough matchup no matter which city they are in.
