The Steelers’ Path to Victory
The NFL playoffs are just around the corner, and teams are fighting for their spot in the postseason. One team that has been on the bubble for the past few weeks is the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, this week they have a chance to clinch their spot in the playoffs with a win against the Buffalo Bills. This will be no easy feat as the Bills are currently sitting at the top of the AFC East. But according to the experts on Action Packed News, Dan Orlovsky, Marcus “Swagu” Spears, and Andrew Hawkins, the Steelers have a strong chance to come out on top.
Pittsburgh has been dealing with injuries and inconsistent play over the past few weeks, causing many to doubt their ability to secure a playoff spot. But with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger leading the team, the Steelers have a chance to turn their season around. The key to their success will be in their defense, one of the top-ranked in the league. If they can shut down Buffalo’s explosive offense, led by quarterback Josh Allen, they have a good shot at a win. But as Swagu points out, the Bills’ defense also poses a threat to the Steelers’ offense, and it will be a battle of the trenches.
Houston vs. Indianapolis Rematch
The Texans and Colts will also be facing off in a crucial game this week. After the Colts narrowly defeated the Texans in a close game earlier this season, the Texans will be looking for revenge. But unlike their first meeting, this game will take place in Indianapolis, giving the Colts the home-field advantage. As ESPN’s own Laura Rutledge notes, the Colts have been on a hot streak lately, while the Texans have struggled to find consistency. But as Hawkins points out, the Texans have a history of stepping up in big games, and they will need to do just that in order to keep their playoff hopes alive.
While the Texans will be without top wide receiver Will Fuller due to suspension, they still have quarterback Deshaun Watson leading the way. However, the Colts have been strong defensively and will be looking to shut down Watson and his weapons. It will be a close and competitive game, and the outcome has major implications for both teams. NFL Live’s analysts are split on who they think will come out on top, so it will certainly be a game worth watching as we edge closer to the playoffs.
