The Pittsburgh Steelers are fresh off their bye week. Unfortunately, the 'big changes' that Mike Tomlin insisted the team would make weren't the ones that fans were hoping for. Matt Canada remains the team's offensive coordinator and Tomlin assured us that there's no plan for that to change this year.
The good news is that Pittsburgh is fresh off their bye week, and as ugly as things have looked early in the 2023 seasons, they still sit on a 3-2 record. The Steelers are getting back key contributors and starters this week like Pat Freiermuth, James Daniels, and Diontae Johnson. All three could prove to play a factor in their return to the field.
This is a pivotal game for the Steelers with a lot on the line. As it stands, they would be a playoff team in the AFC, but the race is extremely tight in their division and Pittsburgh can't afford to get behind. Here's how you can be sure to catch today's game.

What to watch for in Steelers vs. Rams game today:
The last time these two teams faced each other, the Pittsburgh Steelers were able to pull off a low-scoring victory at home. Of course, the Rams are an uncommon opponent, so this game came all the way back in 2019. A lot has obviously changed since then.
While the Rams currently sit on a 3-3 record, they are playing better than the win-loss column would suggest. It's been just the opposite for the Steelers who, on paper, have looked like one of the worst teams in the league so far.
The Steelers secondary will be tasked with trying to slow down receivers like Cooper Kupp, Puka Nacua, and Tutu Atwell while keeping QB Matthew Stafford in check. Offensively, Pittsburgh's offensive line will have their hands full against All-Pro DT Aaron Donald -- who is still one of the very best defensive players in the NFL.
