Watt leads the Steelers with 10 sacks while Sean Davis leads Pittsburgh with 40 tackles this season. As a team, Pittsburgh is averaging 410.2 yards of total offense and 29.9 points per game this season.
The Denver Broncos will look to pick up some momentum after a 23-22 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in their last outing. Case Keenum has thrown for 2,605 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 63.3% passing while Phillip Lindsay leads the Broncos in rushing with 670 yards and 5 touchdowns this season.

Pittsburgh is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 road games while the under is 12-1 in their last 13 road games against a team with a losing home record. Denver is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Pittsburgh is 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams and 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Denver.
I’ve talked a lot about how well Pittsburgh’s offense had been performing this season, but if we’re being honest, the offense looked bad for parts of the Jacksonville game, but those are the kind of games you need to win as a contender, the grind-it-out, come-from-behind type victories. Denver stood toe-to-toe with the Chargers but given how low the line is and how well the Steelers are playing over the last month and a half, I feel the only option is to lay the field goal on the road with Pittsburgh here.
