The Steelers are in a bad way. Their QB Mitch Trubisky is chronically passing up open receivers downfield and dumping the ball short. Offensive coordinator Matt Canada is under fire from fans but is also being questioned publicly by players. There are also reports of the Steelers players questioning play calls in the huddle.
The Steelers lost to the Patriots on Sunday, 17-14. The Patriots ran out the clock in the fourth quarter with a six-minute drive that ended with the final horn. They ran over the Steelers’ defense which is still missing T.J. Watt.
The Browns failed to capitalize on the Steelers’ loss, and themselves lost 31-30 to the New York Jets.
NFL Bets We Like, Thursday Night:
Bets on the first QB to be benched — Steelers starter Mitch Trubisky is off the board. This might get uglier before it gets better in Pittsburgh.
O/U: 38.5 (-110). We LOVE the OVER. We don’t expect Trubisky to finish the game, and “backup” Kenny Pickett should be good for an extra touchdown. Also, the Steelers defense was gassed on Sunday. Look for the Browns to have an advantage there, too.
We do like Steelers linebacker Alex Highsmith to get a sack. Browns QB Jacoby Brissett isn’t exactly an All-Pro. Highsmith was shut out against the Patriots and should have a little extra motivation. Highsmith is +160 to get a sack. We’ll take it.
It should be a fun game, and the short week should work against the Steelers. Click here for the 40-1 Odds boost DraftKings promo.
