Week 10 of the NFL season has arrived, and we are officially over the halfway point of the season. The Steelers are sitting in a good spot right now with a 5-3 record without playing good football. If they can find ways to score more points on offense and continue their turnover trend on the defensive side of the ball, then this team might have something here.

Pittsburgh has struggled on offense all season, but they welcome a Green Bay Packers club that has struggled in that part of their game too. Green Bay was able to have a promising start to their schedule, but that has fallen to the wayside over the past several weeks. The Steelers on the other hand have been able to find ways to win football games no matter how ugly it gets.

Most games seem like they could go either way each week for Pittsburgh. They are a team that has a bunch of problems that should have resulted in more losses over for past nine weeks. For one reason or another, that did not happen, and the club is sitting in a quality position to make the playoffs this year. They will have to win games like this one on Sunday.

CBS Sports has the Steelers winning at home against the Packers

CBS Sports Prediction: Steelers 24, Packers 16

The Black and Gold are expected to win this game according to most experts’ predictions this week. CBS Sports follows that line with the above score prediction. Many know that the Steelers have a lot of flaws, but you cannot deny their record. No matter how ugly a win can be, it is still a positive result, nonetheless. That has some weight this week.

The Steelers are presumed to win this game by eight points. Reaching 24 points would be one of the larger point outcomes by Pittsburgh this season. It would be a welcome sight to the Steel City. Green Bay is playing poor football heading into this game on offense and the Steelers defense should be able to take advantage of that.
