2. Kenny Pickett
Are we sure the Steelers’ offense is much better with rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett under center? There isn’t any question that Mitch Trubisky wasn’t the future and not going to win the team many games, however, the one consistency for Pickett so far this season has been turnover issues and continued struggles pushing the ball down the field.
Pickett is going to give the Atlanta defense chances to create turnovers in this game. Even if Pickett protects the football the way the Steelers’ defense has played this season it is hard to believe they are capable of putting any game out of reach.
Three of their four victories this season have all been within a touchdown or less with the only exception coming in a ten points win over the New Orleans Saints. Atlanta is going to have continual chances in this game and a quarterback that is going to throw the ball at the wrong jersey at least once.
