20. Pittsburgh Steelers (19)
From a confidence perspective, the Pittsburgh Steelers have every reason in the world to be thrilled over their big win on the road over the Los Angeles Chargers before the bye week since this team has been desperate for victories all year.
For a team that was already facing a difficult challenge in adjusting on offense without Antonio Brown, the Steelers received another crushing blow early in the season when Ben Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending injury.
After clearing concussion protocol, all signs point to Mason Rudolph being ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, which seems like the perfect matchup following a bye week when seeing how the two teams compare.
Despite the Dolphins playing better than expected against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7, the Steelers realize the importance of winning this one after starting the year off on a rough note, and will look to take advantage of playing this one at home.
Pittsburgh may only have two wins to their name entering the final weekend of October, but ruling this team out from a surprise playoff run in the AFC would be foolish at this point since the Steelers have plenty of time remaining in the regular season.
