Steelers vs. Lions Prediction

The Steelers offense isn’t quite the force the team would want it to be, but their defense has been immense this season. The Lions can be competitive, but not enough to pull off this upset win.

Jeff Hartman

I was extremely hesitant to pick the Steelers winning by double-digits when I saw both Kendrick Green and Najee Harris pop up on the injury report. However, both of them being full participants in practice Friday gives me a better feeling about my score prediction.

Dave Schofield

Sometimes procrastination pays off. After already making my score prediction on The Steelers Preview podcast of 30-18, I get the benefit of writing this synopsis after it was reported Ben Roethlisberger was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 List.

Bryan Anthony Davis

I’m keeping my score here despite Ben Roethlisberger’s inclusion on the Covid-19 list. The defense is going to have to help out, but the Lions haven’t had a chance to prepare for No. 2. Rudolph is much better when he takes teams by surprise. The defense will have to step up as well, and will.

Michael Beck

This smells of a trap game. Detroit is coming off of a Bye Week and are desperate to get their first win of the season. I expect gadget plays, and the rest of the kitchen sink to be thrown at the Steelers in an attempt to steal a game, following the Lions extra week of preparation.

K.T. Smith

The Steelers will win this game. The Steelers will win this game. The Steelers will win this game.

Geoffrey Benedict

I had this game as a loss. It just felt like the game the Steelers would get caught off-guard.

Rich Schofield (Big Bro Scho)

The Ravens lost on Thursday night and opened a huge door for the Steelers to walk through. I was worried early in the week about some of the folks that popped up on the injured list, but that all seemed to work itself out.

Under 42.5 (-110)

Between the philosophies of the two head coaches involved here and the limited passers they’re working with, these are two teams who have committed to running the football in 2021.

Pat Freiermuth Over 34.5 receiving yards (-114)

The Steelers have seemingly found yet another quietly solid tight end in rookie Pat Freiermuth. The Penn State product has emerged in recent weeks after injuries to Chase Claypool and Juju Smith-Schuster, averaging 5.3 catches, 48.3 yards, and one touchdown per game over his last three.

Lions vs. Steelers prediction

It is so hard to see how the Lions can win any of these games right now. Both sides of the ball are struggling to make an impact and that is a terrible recipe. Even against a struggling offense like the Steelers, it is difficult to imagine how they restrict them under 20 points this week.

Why The Lions Could Cover

Both David Blough and Tim Boyle are competing for Detroit’s backup QB. Of course, the starting job is all Jared Goff’s. But as far as the backup options go, neither quarterback was really impressive in the Lions victory last week over the Bills.

Why The Steelers Could Cover

Dwayne Haskins comes to Pittsburgh after two mostly unsuccessful seasons with the Washington Football Team. Starting fresh with a new organization will be a great opportunity for the former Ohio State quarterback. Last week, he was spectacular. He went 16 for 22 with 161 passing yards and a touchdown.

Final Lions-Steelers Prediction & Pick

As preseason games tend to go, my pick here leans heavily on the quarterback matchup. Given Dwayne Haskins’ NFL experience is far greater than any QB the Lions will feature in this game, I think the Steelers get an easy win here. Plus, most of the Steelers roster bests the Lions anyway.

Lions pass offense (30th in DVOA) vs. Steelers pass defense (20th)

In case you needed a reminder after a week off, the Lions passing offense has been a pretty big disaster with Jared Goff behind center. While Goff has been a big problem with his hesitancy to throw down field, his ill-timed turnovers and lack of mobility, the Lions’ issues run deeper than that.

Lions run offense (28th) vs. Steelers run defense (9th)

This seems to happen every year. To start the year, it looks like the Lions had finally fixed the running game, only for it to fall back below average shortly thereafter.

Steelers pass offense (19th) vs. Lions pass defense (29th)

Ben Roethlisberger is a transformed quarterback. Long gone are the days in which he would throw the ball for 300 yards a week and test defenses downfield. Injuries and age have caught up with him, and he’s very much a checkdown machine.

Steelers run offense (19th) vs. Lions run defense (25th)

Najee Harris has been all of the rage over the past couple weeks, but truth be told, this Steelers rushing attack has been bad all season. It’s not at all Harris’ fault—his PFF run grade of 67.6 is more than adequate—but he’s probably been getting more credit than he deserves.
