Final prediction has the Steelers winning a close game at the end

This game will likely come down to two different things that will determine the victory. Whichever team can establish the run more effectively during the duration of the game, and whichever club can cause more turnovers. Those two things have allowed the Steelers to get a lot of wins this season, so it is hard to find a reason to pick against them in this regard.

You also have to imagine that their luck will run out eventually, and this is a perfect trap game for them to lose. Everyone is expecting Pittsburgh to win this game, and that is not always the best thing for this club heading into a game. There are a lot of things that are going in the Steelers favor heading into this Sunday afternoon contest, but they could screw this up.

Steelers win 23-20

It is going to be another tight game that comes down to the wire for the black and gold. Fans of the Steelers have grown used to that throughout their years, so this is nothing new. With a banged-up offensive line, Pittsburgh should be able to apply their pass-rush duo effectively for most of the game. The biggest thing will be stopping both A.J. Dillon and Aaron Jones on the ground.

If they can stop those two and get after the passer similar to last game, then they will create a few turnovers and get ahead. Pickett will come alive in the fourth quarter again and find different ways to get the Steelers back in the game. He will lead the offense down the field just in time for Chris Boswell to kick the game-winning field goal.
