Week 11: Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns, Sunday at 1 P.M.

Prediction: Steelers 17, Browns 13

The black and gold enter week 11 with a 6-3 record to their name. That is a solid number and this is where things could get a little hairy for this group. Pickett has seen concussion issues in his young career and having a rookie block Myles Garrett one on one is a tough challenge. Expect Mitch Trubisky to come and play meaningful snaps this year and he get the Steelers a win.

Week 12: Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday at 1 P.M.

Prediction: Bengals 35, Steelers 23

Expectations come crashing back down to earth after the Steelers hot start to the second half of their campaign. Cincinnati is still going to rule the kingdom of the AFC North, which will kill many hopes for the fanbase. The Bengals offense torches the defense all day as they cannot find answers for their bountiful offensive weapons.

Week 13: Arizona Cardinals vs Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday at 1 P.M.

Prediction: Steelers 28. Cardinals 24

Just like Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, there is no place like home and that could be said for this club. They can rebound quickly from their beat down just a week prior. Arizona is another team just like the Titans where it seems like they do not know where they are going just yet. Kyler Murray is talented enough to keep them in this game, but it's a contest Pittsburgh should always lead in.

Week 14: New England Patriots vs Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday at 8:15 P.M.

Prediction: Patriots 26, Steelers 20

Another short week for the black and gold as they finish their double Thursday night football games of the season. It is tough to heal up that quickly and overcome another team that has not played in a Thursday night contest earlier in the year. New England is always going to be a well-coached group and that turns out to be too much for the Steelers to handle.
