Pittsburgh Steelers @ Indianapolis Colts

1:00 pm EST, CBS



The Steelers catch a break of sorts with the Colts, who have eked out three wins; two of which were the direct result of an injury-weakened opponent.  While some credit goes to the Colts for at least trying to do something, they’re simply overmatched this Sunday.  Expect the usual offensive attack by the Steelers, perhaps backed by an effort to use troubled wideout Martavis Bryant a bit more.  It should be enough.


Key players:

Steelers – Bryant, LB Bud Dupree, DE Cam Heyward

Colts – RB Frank Gore, WR Donte Moncrief, LB Jonathan Bostic



Cincinnati Bengals  @ Tennessee Titans

1:00 pm EST, FOX



This one might be a toss-up for the Bengals, who have shown no offensive identity of their own beyond mid-level passes to wideout A.J. Green.  It’ll be a ground-based affair here, as the Titans run the ball a ton, and the Bengals haven’t shown much consistency in stopping the run.  Scoring will be at a premium in this one, so start brewing your coffee now.


Key Players:

Bengals – Green, RB Joe Mixon, De Carlos Dunlap

Titans – RB Derrick Henry, LB Brian Orakpo, CB Adoree’ Jackson



Cleveland Browns @ Detroit Lions

1:00 pm EST, CBS



Lots of points to be had in this game, if the Browns can muster enough offense to take advantage of a suspect Detroit secondary.  Given the state of QB DeShone Kizer, this is no lock, but it remains a viable opportunity for a competitive game.  Detroit will counter by engaging their own passing attack and QB Matt Stafford, who may or may not be the best QB in the NFC North.


Key Players:

Browns – Kizer, RB Duke Johnson, CB Jamar Taylor

Lions – Stafford, WR Golden Tate, DT Anthony Zettel
