Steelers vs. Rams key players to watch
Jaylen Warren: Not only is Jaylen Warren the No. 2 running back, but he is the No. 2 receiver for the Steelers as well, ranking second on the team in receptions (21) and yards (166). As a result his snap count has increased on a weekly basis and he played 49% of snaps in their latest game against the Ravens. I expect that number to continue to rise as the season goes on.
Los Angeles Rams
Kyren Williams: While everyone is focusing on the passing attack of the Los Angeles Rams, their running game, led by Kyren Williams, doesn't get enough credit. He's averaging 4.7 yards per carry on the season and now he takes on a Steelers defense that has struggled to stop the run this season.
Steelers vs. Rams prediction and pick
It's tough to tell how the Steelers are going to look coming out of their BYE week, but if they're going to have a strong offensive game, it's going to happen when they have a week to prepare.
That's one of the main reasons why I like the OVER in this game.
The Rams are an OVER bettors' dream. Their offense has been electric all season, but their defensive has left quite a bit to be desired. They rank just 22nd in the NFL in opponent EPA/Play, so expect the Steelers to be able to move the ball on them.
Then, we can't ignore the Rams offense, which is sixth in the NFL in EPA/Play and can move the ball against you several different ways with several different players.
Let's just sit back and root for the OVER in this interconference showdown.
