The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost two in a row. This week, they travel to face an improved Oakland team in Oakland. Without James Conner in the lineup, things could get interesting in week 14 for the Steelers.
The Oakland Raiders are playing with house money. They have no shot at making the playoffs this year, and are in complete rebuild mode to end the season. Look for a strong effort this week from Oakland at home.
The Pittsburgh Steelers were one of the most feared teams in the AFC a few weeks ago. The team had no worries and did not care if Le’Veon Bell came back this year or not. Enter week 14. The Steelers have dropped two straight games with blown leads. Losing to the Broncos on the road and to the Chargers on Sunday night Prime time.
With the Steelers dropping two in a row, things only get worse for the Steel curtain. They will be without starting running back James Conner this week. Conner leads the team in rushing with 909 yards and has 12 touchdowns this season.
Aside from the loss of Conner, the Pittsburgh offense needs to be a little worried about big Ben’s ability to protect the ball. Especially in the red zone. He has throw three interceptions in the Steelers last two losses.
Defensively, the team has been stout. There have been many opportunities for the offense to win the last few games, but based on how well the defense has played, the scores don’t indicate how well they have played this year.
The Oakland Raiders are one of the worst teams in the AFC and NFL this season. The Raiders are currently 4-8 with nothing left to play for. Last week, the Raiders took Kansas City to the brink in Oakland. The Raiders lost 40-33, but gave everything they had.
Oakland is 1-5 at home this season. They have yet to play Pittsburgh this year. Derrick Carr is going to have his hands full in this matchup. Carr passed for 285 yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs last week. This week, he faces a much stronger defense.
If Carr and the Raiders are able to get out and score first, they will gain confidence at home. Which could lead to a lot of unlikely stars showing up for Oakland in this matchup.
On defense, the Raiders are bad. The team is allowing 402 total yards per game this season. Look for the Raiders secondary to be tested early and often in this one.
