2014 Pittsburgh Steelers Schedule | Season Handicapping Picks

NFL Football – Steelers Analysis

The Pittsburgh Steelers finished 2013 with an 8-8 record, which tied the Baltimore Ravens for second in the AFC North. Unfortunately for the team, it was left on the outside looking in when it came to the postseason.

Steelers Odds

Odds to win the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX: 35/1
Odds to win the 2015 AFC Conference: 18/1
Season Win Total: 10 wins

Sunday, Sept. 7 vs. Cleveland – Not a bad way to open up the season. The Steelers get the 4-12 (2013) Cleveland Browns at home to help gain momentum heading into a tough road environment.

Thursday, Sept. 11 @ Baltimore – Contests between these two are always entertaining. Add in that it’s on Thursday night—not to mention the fact that they finished with the same record in 2013—and you’ve got one of the best games of the early NFL season.

Sunday, Sept. 21 @ Carolina – In Week 3, the Steelers will face off against the Carolina Panthers—their first out-of-conference contest of the year. Containing Cam Newton will be key, but getting past the Panthers’ D-line could be the difference maker.

Sunday, Sept. 28 vs. Tampa Bay – Pittsburgh’s early schedule is favorable. Only two teams in their first nine opponents had a winning record last season, and needless to say, Tampa Bay was not one of them.

Sunday, Oct. 5 @ Jacksonville – Pittsburgh has an obvious advantage in this one, but the contest could be more meaningful than you think. The Steelers failed to taken down inferior competition at times last season, and a similar narrative could be telling in Week 5.

Sunday, Oct. 12 @ Cleveland – At this point in the year, Pittsburgh has already faced (and likely beaten) the Cleveland Browns. This one will have the road element as a part of it, but that shouldn’t change the fact that the Steelers are simply the better team.

Monday, Oct. 20 vs. Houston – Who will the Houston Texans take with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft? Only time will tell, but the Steelers will get their first look at the up-and-comer in Week 7.

Sunday, Oct. 26 vs. Indianapolis – The Indianapolis Colts will be the second team with a winning record from 2013 on Pittsburgh’s schedule. Expect a whole bunch of defensive pressure on Andrew Luck, as this will be the first time he’s faced the Steelers.

Sunday, Nov. 2 vs. Baltimore – Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh: Round 2. We’d love to see these two do battle late in the year, but when it comes down to it, why wait?

Sunday, Nov. 9 v@ New York Jets – Nobody quite knows what to expect out of the 2014 version of the New York Jets. This is unequivocally a winnable game; however, it’s a tough bet if the Jets’ offense is rolling.

Monday, Nov. 17 @ Tennessee – The Titans are another team that fall into the “winnable game” category. Luckily for Pittsburgh, they’re far less likely to get a surprising win compared to the Jets, which bodes well for the Steelers in Week 11.

Week 12 – BYE WEEK

Sunday, Nov. 30 vs. New Orleans – Chances are, the New Orleans Saints will be the most potent offense Pittsburgh faces all season. Everyone will be focused on Big Ben and Drew Brees, but look at Antonio Brown and Keenan Lewis as X-factors.

Sunday, Dec. 7 @ Cincinnati – This matchup will be between rivals, but it will also be during a crucial stretch of the season. It’s very well possible that both teams are fighting for a spot in the postseason at this time in the year.

Sunday, Dec. 14 @ Atlanta – The Atlanta Falcons have experienced somewhat of a downfall, wouldn’t you say? The hope here is that they’re still down and out by Week 15, but there’s always room for optimism down south when you have Roddy White on one side and Julio Jones on the other.

Sunday, Dec. 21 vs. Kansas City – The Chiefs can only get better. Last season wasn’t Kansas City’s year in the sense that locals thought it would be. Could that be this season, perhaps?

Sunday, Dec. 28 vs. Cincinnati – Four of the final five games are against playoff teams from last season. It’s not an easy ride to the finish, and that theme will ring true when these two face off in what could be a classic contest to close out the year.
