Pittsburgh Steelers Calendar Analysis - NFL News & Odds
The Pittsburgh Steelers managed to maintain their streak of not having losing seasons in the Mike Tomlin era with a team that offensively was terrible. Injuries and lack of talent on offense greatly limited a team that was up for more. In 2020, it’s time for the Steelers to seek their postseason return. These are the toughest matches on their schedule. Let’s check the Pittsburgh Steelers calendar and who they are up against along with their NFL odds.
Pittsburgh Steelers Calendar Analysis
Week 4 Titans Vs Steelers
Visiting Tennessee in week four will not be an easy task. But this duel is attractive, the fight between the runner Derrick Henry and the defense of the Steelers is going to be intense, where one of the strongest defenses must stop a runner who, frankly, looks like a tractor running over whoever is in front of him .
On the other hand, Ben Roethlisberger’s arm must be neat and accurate to find his receivers and cause damage in a secondary that, although decent, has had changes this offseason.

Week 7 Ravens Vs Steelers
Baltimore is the supreme favorite to take the AFC North (-200), but if the Pittsburgh Steelers want to cause doubt on that, taking a win on their visit to the Ravens is vital. This is a classic divisional rivalry, where no matter the momentum of the teams, both will go out to kill, it has that violent vibe.
Lamar Jackson is the MVP of the league and the quarterback leads- yes, he is the protagonist – the best running attack in the NFL, but Jackson led the NFL in scoring passes with 36, so you can’t sacrifice air defense to stop it by land, he’ll make you pay dearly. TJ Watt and Bud Dupree are two great quarterbacks and will be looking to put pressure on Jackson and company, while safety Minkah Fitzpatrick will be on the lookout to punish Jackson if he makes an erratic pass.

Week 9 Cowboys Vs Steelers
The Steelers must go through the NFC East in the 2020 season and no game is as complicated within that division as visiting AT&T Stadium is. Dallas has a great team and they want to leave behind the colorless era that Jason Garrett left behind as head coach.
With three receivers of exceptional caliber like Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and rookie sensation CeeDee Lamb, accompanied by elite running back Ezekiel Elliott, slowing down Dallas is pretty tough. The mission is easy to identify, not letting Dak Prescott warm up. However, Dallas has a great offensive line that will complicate the task.
- Date: Sunday, November 8, 4:25 p.m.
Week 14 Bills Vs Steelers
Buffalo ranks as one of the strongest teams in the AFC, this match is of great relevance. First of all, in week 14 there is no margin for error, letting go of a game can end your season. Two, both franchises are probably in the middle of a fight for playoff positions. Three, they are two high-quality defenses facing each other in a pitched battle.
Complicating the outlook for the Steelers, the game will be played in Buffalo. The weather is not very friendly and the pressure will be at its maximum. If they win this match, Pittsburgh will have not only a very valuable victory, but also a monumental mood for the closing.
- Date: Sunday, December 13, 8:20 p.m.
Week 16 Steelers Vs Colts
Indianapolis will arrive fighting the AFC South title, probably. Pittsburgh, struggling for its postseason position. Given this, and taking advantage of being at home, the Steelers must put pressure on quarterback Philip Rivers, who under pressure and in closed games does not have the best calmness to get the results.
Forcing Rivers to make mistakes is the way, for that, they must have a lot of defensive discipline, be in tune and take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves to punish.

2020 Record Predictions For The Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers must fight for a wild card. Winning the season seems a little tricky for the team, due to Baltimore’s superiority as a franchise. Given this, I predict that Pittsburgh will be left with a 10-6 record.
The Steelers are at +325 odds to win the AFC North.
