Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) vs LA Rams (3-3), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST

Prediction: Rams 27, Steelers 19

Even though the Steelers are coming off a bye week, this is not a favorable matchup for them. The Rams will be able to throw the ball all game against a terrible starting duo of Patrick Peterson and Levi Wallace. T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith should be able to cause some pressure on Matthew Stafford, but that probably won't be enough to change the outcome here.

Again, all of this will probably depend on how the offense is able to move the ball with Diontae Johnson and Pat Freiermuth returning for Pittsburgh. Aaron Donald should have a big game and both LA receivers should be able to create a harsh dent into the Steelers defense. Many thought this would have been a winnable game for Pittsburgh before the season, but that does not seem to be the case any longer.

Arizona Cardinals (1-5) vs Seattle Seahawks (3-2), Sunday at 4:05 P.M. EST

Prediction: Seahawks 28, Cardinals 14

Seattle is coming off a tough loss last week against the Bengals where they could not get in the end zone. Expect that to change this week at home as they host one of the weaker teams in the NFL this season. Arizona is not good and continues to get worse with each passing week. The Seahawks should be able to win the ball game without much contention.

Green Bay Packers (2-3) vs Denver Broncos (1-5), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST

Prediction: Packers 20, Broncos 17

Green Bay goes by how Jordan Loves performs each week. Sometimes he has looked the part of the starter for the Packers, and sometimes he looks like a bust. This is a battle between two teams that do not know what their future holds. Denver wants to be in contention, but they aren't. Expect the Packers to win a low-scoring battle with a late field goal.
