AFC North standings heading into Week 5 of the 2021 NFL schedule
Denver Broncos (3-1) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (1-3), Sunday at 1 P.M. ET
It has been a nightmare scenario for the Steelers as this season looks grimmer and grimmer as the weeks go by. The team that has once dominated this division now sits at the bottom all by themselves.
It was another sloppy performance against the Packers but the offense has steadily put more and more points on the board each week. They have improved some but this offense is just dead in the water during the majority of games. This is a matchup that could help the home club get back on track. They have a much better chance of winning this one against the Broncos than they ever had last week. That is not saying that they will win this game but this club has a better shot this week.
The Steelers will be looking for some positives to build off of and they can get some opportunities to win. The Broncos defense is a solid group and that will cause issues for this unstable offensive front. They will have chances in the passing game as long as Ben Roethlisberger stays away from their safeties.
It should be a game where the black and gold defense gets after the quarterback and causes turnovers. This could be a win unless the Steelers are unable to accomplish those talking points above. If Pittsburgh loses this game then it is time for this season and all of its possibilities to go away forever.
The AFC North continues to move the teams around in the standings as the season continues. Some teams are experiencing some disappointment this week while others are ascending to contender status early on.
