pittsburgh steelers 24 vs carolina panthers 16

ANALYSIS

The 5-8 Panthers should be grateful for their 2nd place spot in the NFC South. They are now on a 2 game win streak and have a 22% chance of making the playoffs because of how bad their division is. This week’s matchup with the Steelers is a great opportunity to extend their streak to three games. In last week’s surprise win against the Seahawks, Chuba Hubbard ran for 74 yards and a TD.

The Steelers fell to the Lamar-less Ravens last week, and have failed to reach 20 points in two consecutive weeks. In last week’s loss, Mitchell Trubisky threw for 276 and a TD, but threw 3 picks in the contest. Najee Harris continues his ineffective campaign on the ground, turning 12 carries into just 33 yards.¬†
