The Pittsburgh Steelers stumbled in Week 15, losing 30-13 to the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. Mitchell Trubisky struggled and was benched after two interceptions. Kenny Pickett is unlikely to get back this week, and things have turned dire for Pittsburgh after three straight losses.
The Steelers dropped to 7-7 with the loss, which dropped them from No. 6 to No. 10 in the playoff standings. The Bills, Bengals, and Texans all won to move a game up on Pittsburgh heading into Week 16.
Pittsburgh Steelers current odds
Week 16: vs. Bengals
Week 17: @ Seahawks
Week 18: @ Ravens
The good news for Pittsburgh is they get a crack at the Bengals with a chance to sweep the season series and clinch the head-to-head tiebreaker. The bad news is they’re facing three tough teams to close out the season and it’s unlikely they win all three. I see one win in this group, either against the Bengals or Seahawks. 0-3 is a very real possibility, but I’ll say they finish 1-2.
Final record prediction: 8-9
Current AFC playoff standings
The Steelers are not going to make the playoffs. The offense is a disaster and their remaining schedule is too difficult to get what would likely be a much-needed ninth win.
