Ahead of the 2020 NFL season, DraftKings Sportsbook set projected win totals for each NFL team. Some teams are well on their way to exceeding these win totals, outperforming the bar oddsmakers set for them prior to Week 1. Other teams need a bit more help to get there.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are bouncing back strong with the return of Ben Roethlisberger to the active lineup. The team relied solely on defense in the 2019 season, which led them to an 8-8 record despite scoring the sixth-fewest points on the season and averaging just 4.7 yards per play (t2nd-lowest).
This season, health has been much less of an issue, with Roethlisberger throwing well despite last season’s elbow injury. His corps of skill players has been healthier too, as his key weapons in JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and James Conner have been able to stay on the field. Playmakers on each side of the ball have kept the team 10-0 for the first time in franchise history.
The Steelers met their pre-season projected win total of 9 games in Week 11 after defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road. They’ll look to improve to 11-0 against the Ravens in Week 12, as long as the game proceeds as scheduled on Tuesday night amid Covid-19 concerns.
