We have reached week five of the NFL season and this is a matchup between two teams who wishes they could have gotten off to a better start to the season.
In this one the Atlanta Falcons make the trip to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. This a really big game for both teams.
The Atlanta Falcons had high expectations for this season but they need to treat this game like a must win, or this game might be considered a lost season.
They come into this game with a 1-3 record and although the offense has been playing well, the defense has really struggled.
Against the Bengals the offense scored 36 points but the defense gave up 37 points which means the game still ended in a loss.
Matt Ryan played really well throwing for 419 yards and three touchdowns but in the end the defense is what let them down.
In this game the offense is going to need to play well of course, but the defense is going to be what makes the difference in this game.
If the defense lets Big Ben do whatever they want, it’s going to be another long afternoon of football, and probably another loss.
On the other side of this matchup is the Pittsburgh Steelers who have really struggled this season and they need to turn their season around quickly as they come into this game with one win, two losses, and one tie.
After having a nice start in his first game, James Conner has fallen back to earth which has made life even tougher on Big Ben.
Big Ben and his receivers don’t seem to be on the same page and one of the issues has been getting Antonio Brown involved.
Through four games he has only had 29 receptions for 272 yards and three touchdowns. It’s pretty clear they are both frustrated by this and there is a clear disconnect.
On the defensive side of the ball this isn’t the same team as five years ago when this was one of the best defensive teams in the league.
This is actually one of the worst defensive teams in the league, and they are going to need to get better as the season goes on.
In this game they need to slow down Matt Ryan and his recievers. If they let Ryan pick him apart, they are going to have some issues.

I think the Falcons will finally step up to the plate on the defensive end of the field and that will be the difference.
Matt Ryan will have a big game and it will finally be enough to come out with a victory.
