The Still Curtain staff have mixed feelings for the Steelers in this one

"The Steelers have won their last six games following their bye week, but the Rams passing game is a nightmare matchup for them. The Steelers will be in a fight just to keep it close." - Shayne Kubas (Rams 24-17)

"The signs point to this being a tough game for the Steelers, from their obvious struggles to having to travel out to LA for this game. Call it a feeling, but I think Pittsburgh showcases some of their explosive plays from the preseason and win this one handily. Kenny Pickett will have his best game so far." - Andrew Falce (Steelers 30-21)

"Coming out of the bye week, the Steelers will look to keep pace in the AFC North Division race. The Rams will prove to be a tough “out”. In typical Steelers fashion, the win will not come easily. A sloppily played game on both sides will result in a Steelers victory thanks to a late FG by Chris Boswell." - Eric C Hassel (Steelers 23-21)

"Kenny Picket will need help against the Los Angeles Rams. Teryl Austin’s secondary will be tested. It will force the Steelers to score points. I think Matt Canada’s group will have an efficient week. Mike Tomlin’s group will secure the W." - Loyal Ricks Jr. (Steelers 24-16)

" I don’t think Mike Tomlin and staff will have an answer for anything Sean McVay throws at him. Unfortunately, it will be another day of being out coached and unprepared." - Blaze (Rams 30-17)
