Last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers showed a huge improvement in the passing game thanks to the team firing Matt Canada, which helped guide the team to a 16-10 road win over the rival Cincinnati Bengals. This week the Steelers return home and hope to continue to see improvement as they take on the 2-10 Arizona Cardinals.

On paper, this one feels like it heavily favors the Steelers. And the oddsmakers at BetMGM tend to agree. They have the Steelers as 5.5-point favorites this week and put the over/under for total points at 34.

The Cardinals have struggled most of the season waiting for quarterback Kyler Murray to return from injury. Sunday will be Murray’s fourth game back. He’s 1-2 as a starter since his return. Murray is the x-factor in this one and could give the Steelers defense real problems this week.
