Arizona Cardinals (2-8) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (7-4), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Steelers 24, Cardinals 20

Arizona is one of the worst teams in football and the addition of Kyler Murray from injury has not fixed things. There are too many holes on this roster to salvage much of the schedule that is left in front of them. Murray will be able to make them competitive off his explosive plays, but it's not likely that they will be able to hold onto victories.

The Steelers are coming off a massive win against the Bengals last week, and they need to build off their offensive performance. Kenny Pickett needs to lead drives that finish in the end zone. Pittsburgh's defense has averaged giving up less than 20 points this season. Expect Murray to give them a scare, but Pickett and company cash in more than last week.

Indianapolis Colts (6-5) vs Tennessee Titans (4-7), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Titans 22, Colts 19

Indianapolis has found ways to stay in the hunt even though they have been without Jonathan Taylor and Shaq Leonard for parts of the season. Leonard is now gone and Taylor will be out for at least a couple weeks with a thumb injury. The Titans are not playing great, and Will Levis has struggled during his rookie starts. Expect Derrick Henry to be effective on the ground.

Miami Dolphins (8-3) vs Washington Commanders (4-8), Sunday at 1 P.M. EST

Prediction: Dolphins 28, Commanders 17

Miami continues to have a strong offense and a defense that remains underrated. Washington just fired their defensive coordinator and they traded their top edge rushers before the NFL trade deadline passed. This team punted on the season when that happened and they are seeing the direct results of those decisions now.
