Predicting the Steelers season (Part 2)

Image

Sun, Nov 10th - Buffalo  – 1.00 pm / 6.00 pm GMT

I just don’t think you can go far with Kolb as your QB and as with Geno Smith if EJ Manuel starts the Steelers should come up with a win. Expectations are always high in Buffalo – But they nearly always fall flat.

Prediction: Win: 10-24   Record: 7-2

Sun, Nov 17th - Detroit  - 1.00 pm / 6.00 pm GMT

Stafford+ Calvin Johnson are a potentially deadly duo and if they come out firing then I think they could have a run into the play-offs. I think this game really depends on how banged up our secondary is. The Steelers will likely lose to one underdog this year and I think the Lions have the weapons to cause an upset

Prediction – Loss: 24-16   Record: 7-3

Sun, Nov 24th - @ Cleveland  - 1.00 pm / 6.00 pm GMT

As long as we can avoid 8 turnovers we should win all day against the Browns and although they are slowly evolving into a decent team there is just no continuity. There will be no upset here.

Prediction – Win: 24-13  Record: 8-3

Thurs, Nov 28th - @ Baltimore  - 8:30 pm / 1:30 pm GMT

Thanksgiving night in Baltimore is a daunting task no matter how good you think the Ravens will be this season, In keeping with my earlier prediction I think this one will go to the home team.

Prediction – Loss; 10-16  Record: 8-4

Sun, Dec 8th - Miami  – 1.00 pm / 6.00 pm GMT

Are you looking forward to this game, because I know I am. With all the comments aimed  at the Steelers this off-season I can’t wait for Wallace to come here and face the music. The Dolphins will be facing a hostile crowd and a team who should be able to shut down both Tannehill and Wallace. The Steelers in December should be making the final push towards the play-offs and this game will have big implications on the play-offs.

Prediction – Win 14-24  Record 9-4

Sun, Dec 15th Cincinatti  - 1.00 pm / 6.00 pm GMT

As said earlier I feel these two games will be split with the Steelers taking a home victory.

Prediction – Win 17- 24  Record 10-4

Sun, Dec 22nd @ Green Bay  - 4.25 pm / 9.25 pm GMT

This is a re-match from the Steelers’ last Superbowl in Dallas, and I think the result will go the same way here. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in football and containing him is one of the hardest things to do in football, luckily this game shouldn’t have too much of an implication on our hopes of the play-offs

Prediction – Loss 14-24  Record 10-5

Sun, Dec 29th - Cleveland   – 1.00 pm / 6.00 pm GMT

This games result could change depending on whether our play-off fate has been decided, If we play our reserves then Cleveland could get a result but I still think a win is the most likely result.

Prediction- Win 17- 27  Record 11-5

So going by that the Steelers will finish 11-5 but in reality it could be anything from 6-10 (unlikely) to 13-3 (that’s unpossible) as illustrated below.

Guarenteed wins (6) – Raiders,Browns x2 (If we need to win last game), Bills, Jets, Titans.

Guarenteed losses(3) - Ravens, Patriots, Green Bay.

Up in the air (7) - Bengals x2, Dolphins, Ravens, Lions, Vikings + Bears.
