With final cuts situated now, the Steelers can finally turn their attention to week one of the regular season. They will get ready to face off at home against the San Francisco 49ers. It should be a more successful season than last year. If the preseason is any indicator of this team's potential, they could make some noise in a loaded AFC.

The preseason is one thing when compared to the games that actually count in the regular season. The Steelers have a lot of hopeful spots on their roster and some areas of the club that provide nothing but question marks. There could be some interesting scenarios playing out this year with some bold takes that could be so bold that it just might come true.

10. Allen Robinson scores more touchdowns than Diontae Johnson

One issue that the Steelers offense had last year was the inability to sustain drives and finish them with touchdowns. One of those main issues was Diontae Johnson and his inability and lack of targets in the red zone. He finished last season without any receiving touchdowns, which is a staggering statistic with the fact that he is the top receiver for this offense.

His role might be changing, but don't expect him to repeat another campaign like the one he had last year. Allen Robinson II is now the slot receiver for this team, and he has the ability to make contested catches and get open in the middle. Expect him to get a lot of targets once the offense gets in the red zone, which will give him more touchdowns by the end of the season compared to Johnson.
