The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t likely to make the playoffs, but they can certainly play spoiler the rest of the way. Pittsburgh has won two of its last three games and gave Cincinnati a scare two weeks ago. They will go on the road to face the Atlanta Falcons in the Dirty South this week, and they are slight favorites by the NFL betting odds.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Atlanta Falcons will welcome the Pittsburgh Steelers to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. These teams will face off at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 13 Matchup

Marcus Mariota is the starting quarterback for Atlanta, but he has been one of the worst starters in the NFL this season. Mariota’s numbers aren’t terrible as he has completed 62% of his passes for 2,052 yards (7.4 YPA) with 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions, yet it’s clear that he has limitations when you watch him under center. He can’t stretch the field effectively, and everything is within 25 yards of the line of scrimmage. That’s despite the Falcons using a top ten pick on wide receiver Drake London this offseason.

Atlanta does have a formidable ground game though. The Falcons have run for 1,920 yards and are averaging 4.9 YPC as a team. Mariota is the third leading rusher with 421 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.1 YPC, but Cordarrelle Patterson, Tyler Allgeier, and Caleb Huntley all have significant carries.

The Steelers have a very good run defense. They are allowing 4.0 YPC and 104.0 YPG on the ground, ranking sixth in the league in both categories. Cameron Heyward is a solid run stuffer, and T.J. Watt is healthy again up front. However, Pittsburgh has really struggled in the back end. The Black and Gold rank in the bottom five in pass defense, allowing 7.3 YPA and 263.7 YPG as these cornerbacks aren’t great.

Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren are both questionable to play for Pittsburgh due to injury. If they are unable to play than Benny Snell Jr. will see most of the work in the backfield. The ground game has had more success than it did last year, although the Steelers are averaging just 5.6 YPA. George Pickens, Diontae Johnson, and Pat Freiermuth can stretch the field, resulting in defenses refraining from stacking the box as often.

The Falcons don’t have a lot of talent on defense. They are conceding 24.4 PPG and 383.1 YPG, and they rank dead last in the league in sack rate. Grady Jarrett is the only real pass rushing threat, making pass protection rather simple for opponents.

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 12 Recap

Kenny Pickett had another nice outing in Pittsburgh’s win over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football. Pickett really struggled with the speed of the game in his first few starts, but he has since settled into a rhythm and hasn’t thrown an interception in three straight games. He completed 20 of 28 passes for 174 yards against the Colts in a 24-17 win on MNF.

George Pickens stretched the field, but Pickett largely dinked and dunked underneath with passes to Diontae Johnson, Pat Freiermuth, and others. Najee Harris was injured in the game, but the Steelers had a good amount of success with the ground game as they carried the ball 36 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns.

Pittsburgh’s defense surrendered just 290 total yards in the win. Matt Ryan wasn’t at his best, completing 22 of 34 passes for 199 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Ryan fumbled twice and was sacked three times, but he did make the game competitive at the end. Jelani Woods was the leading receiver with eight receptions for 98 yards, while Michael Pittman Jr. caught seven passes for 61 yards and a TD.

Jonathan Taylor had 20 carries for 86 yards and a touchdown, but the ground game didn’t get going until it was too late.

Pittsburgh is a legacy franchise in the NFL. The Steelers have one of the NFL’s largest fan bases, and the TV networks love them. Thus, Pittsburgh remains a desirable property for prime-time games.

The Steelers are at the Cleveland Browns in a Prime Video rivalry matchup in week three. The Browns and Steelers have been bitter rivals since 1950.

The Steelers are at the Miami Dolphins on NBC Sunday Night Football in week seven. The Steelers return to NBCSNF in week 11 when they host the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals.

And then, in Week 16, the Steelers will host the Las Vegas Raiders on NFL Network on the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception game. In 1972 the Steelers beat the Raiders on the game’s final play when a Terry Bradshaw pass bounced off what was thought to be a Raider player into the arms of Franco Harris, who ran it in for the score. That playoff win was the springboard to a Steeler dynasty.

The Rooney family has owned the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1933. Original owner Art Rooney bought the franchise after hitting a big bet on a horse race. As incredible as it sounds, the Steelers were not a success in the first four decades under Rooney’s ownership. In fact, they were a laughingstock. From 1933 through 1971, the Steelers had one playoff appearance.

In 1972 the franchise saw a dramatic turnaround that has lasted until today. Pittsburgh made the playoffs as AFC Central champions. In the 1972 AFC divisional playoffs, the Steelers beat the Oakland Raiders with the famed “Immaculate Reception.” The franchise took off with eight consecutive playoff appearances and four Super Bowl titles.

Stability is the hallmark of the Steelers. Since 1969 they have had three head coaches. Mike Tomlin has served in that role since 2007.
