Washington vs Steelers

5:00 PM EST
Rotation #487-488
Washington/Pittsburgh Under 43.5 (win)

Neither QB really scares me getting outside of the pocket and making plays with their legs and neither teams running game really scares me today.  James Conner is expected to miss this game and Jaylen Samuels is coming off of injury so I don’t expect him to be 100%.  Maurkice Pouncey is out at starting center tonight so the timing might just be a split second off.  This is also an AFC/NFC matchup that really doesn’t hold as much weight as a conference game.  The Steelers have played down to their competition all season long.  Both teams have excellent pass rushers and just great overall defenses.  I just don’t see either team lighting up the scoreboard against these defensive lines.  Both QB’s are just not mobile enough and these defenders in this game should have little problem doing their job and not having to worry about a QB beating them with their legs.  The Steelers will be without Chris Boswell tonight and Washington’s Dustin Hopkins has been banged up.  This is a tough stadium to kick field goals in so long drives could come up empty.  I don’t see an offensive shootout.  The defenses in this game would have to generate instant offense with defensive touchdowns which is something you just can’t predict.  The Steelers are playing on a short week and just trying to get back to normal.  Look for a quick moving football game that is low scoring.  Take the Under.
