AFC North standings heading into Week 4 of the 2021 NFL schedule
Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) vs Green Bay Packers (2-1), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. ET
The Pittsburgh Steelers enter week four after falling to the Cincinnati Bengals at home. It was an embarrassing game as Pittsburgh got smacked around the entire 60 minutes. There were turnovers, lack of pressure, and all-around a poor effort by the home club. It cost them the game and their true colors may be starting to show when it comes to how this season will play out. They do not look like a good team at all.
The defense is battling injuries so they will return to form when they get healed up, but that offense is next-level bad. It could always be fixed as time goes on but they seem to be regressing by the week instead of moving in a positive direction.
The Steelers head on the road and play the Green Bay Packers. That is one of the most hostile environments to play in for a football team. The black and gold are going to have a lot of work to accomplish this week if they truly want to win this game. The Packers are not an unbeatable force as they have issues but they are not a favorable matchup when you look at Pittsburgh’s chances. They got great playmakers that will torch this Steelers secondary just like the Bengals just did this weekend.
If the away team can get healthy enough for guys like T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith to return, along with others, then maybe there is a chance. It is not looking good at all for the Steelers early in this season but it is a long year. There are ups and downs for a team throughout an NFL schedule so there could be light at the end of the tunnel. This is a huge game for the visiting team as they need to leave with a 2-2 record instead of sitting at 1-3. If they lose then that record at this point in the season might be too difficult to rebound from.
The AFC North has wrapped up another week of competition as this division stays tight. The Steelers will look to improve their record against a tough Packers team.
