Matt LaFleur vs Mike Tomlin
Green Bay Packers are looking to regain their footing and push towards playoff contention with a 3-5 record, as evidenced by recent wins against the Los Angeles Rams that provided a much-needed confidence booster. While their overall record may be modest, they can take comfort in knowing their relatively solid defense has kept games competitive, scoring 20.0 points per game on average with 12 passing touchdowns and eight interceptions to their credit.
Packers Stay Strong on Defense
On defense, the Packers have allowed an average of 19.9 points per game to their opponents since 2017, demonstrating their impressive prowess at restricting scoring. Their impressive defensive performance can be evidenced by eight passing touchdowns given up and five interceptions collected; for instance, in their recent victory against the Rams, they displayed their resilience by shutting them out completely in the second half, eventually sealing a 20-3 triumph.
Jordan Love was instrumental to their victory, amassing 228 passing yards and one touchdown on an efficient 20-of-26 passing performance. Running back Aaron Jones provided ground play with 73 rushing yards and one score. Luke Musgrave led their receiving corps, contributing 51 receiving yards and one score on three receptions.
One trend that stands out is the Packers’ struggle in November road games against AFC opponents, having lost each of their last seven matchups. They have shown resilience as road underdogs following wins; covering the spread in six consecutive road underdog matches as an underdog. Furthermore, four out of their last five November AFC opponent’s games involved them losing in the opening quarter and five out of six matches during first-half playback; plus their recent games have tended to stay under the total points line by each meeting or exceed set point threshold.
Pittsburgh Continues to Succeed
On the Steelers’ side of things, they have accomplished five wins this season despite their offensive woes. Their offense averages 16.6 points per game – making them one of the league’s more subdued scoring units – with seven of their 13 touchdowns coming through passing plays with six interceptions attached; running plays have scored four and have an average yardage per carry rate of just 3.7 yards per carry average. Defensively they have done well by only allowing opponents an average of 20.4 points per game and have secured eight interceptions altogether.
Last Thursday against the Tennessee Titans, the Pittsburgh Steelers displayed their ability to score regularly by posting points in each quarter en route to a 20-16 victory. Kenny Pickett contributed 160 passing yards and one touchdown pass as an effective quarterback while Jaylen Warren led rushing with 88 yards, with Diontae Johnson emerging as an important receiving threat with 90 receiving yards on seven receptions plus one touchdown catch.
NFL Latest Odds: PIT -3.5 ; O/U 37.5
The Steelers have proven their strength as underdogs by winning five of seven matches played under these circumstances in this span. Furthermore, they have consistently covered the spread against teams with losing records – covering 7 out of 8 times this way since 2010. Additionally, the Steelers have proven adept at scoring first touchdowns when they are the favorite at home against NFC opponents, accomplishing this in seven of these games so far. However, they have faced challenges in the first quarter since becoming favorites again following wins; three of the four opening quarter losses occurred as favorites following wins; in terms of first halves lost since being favorites again: they have dropped five of them since last November! These issues provide room for growth.
Statistically, both teams possess areas of strength and achievement. The Steelers excelled in forcing fumbles this season by ranking tied for first in the NFL with 13 forced fumbles; additionally, they showed resilience by winning four games where they trailed during the fourth quarter before coming back and winning. Meanwhile, the Packers stood out with their superior kickoff return yards, leading the league with 45.4 average kickoff return yards per game this year while ranking last for points scored during this period with only an average of 2.9 points scored per game this season.
