Pittsburgh has the second ranked total offense in the NFL and averages 27.8 points per game with studs Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. Combined thie Steelers offense put up 543 totals yards and 25 fourth quarter points agains the Bengals last week. QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 25 of his 39 passes for 350 yards 3 TDs with 0 INTs in that game, bumping his season totals to 4055 yards 23 TDs & 8 INT in the season. RB Le’Veon Bell ran for 185 yards and two scores and is only behind DeMarco Murray in rushing with 1231 rushing yards and five TD.

And now they face the worst combined defense in the NFL this week in the Falcons. They allowed the Green Bay Packers to put up 502 total yards in the 43-37 loss on Monday Night Football, with 323 passing and 179 rushing yards against.

The Atlanta Falcons only chance to win this game is to Pittsburgh score for score for score, as they have no chance at stopping the combo of Brown and Bell.

The Falcons are averaging 25.2 points and 381 yards per game and they are led by QB Matt Ryan who has completed 65.5 percent of his passes with 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Steven Jackson anchors the Atlanta ground attack with 52 yards and six touchdowns and Julio Jones has 93 catches and six touchdowns and Roddy White has 59 catches and six touchdowns. The Falcons defense is allowing 26.3 points and a NFL worst 410.8 yards per game but they are plus five in turnover ratio.

Six of the last seven Steeler games have gone over, four of the Steelers last five games in December have gone over, along with four of the last five when they were the betting favorite.

The total has gone over in 11 of Atlanta’s last 16 games at home, along with eight of the last nine games as a home underdog of 0.5-3.0 points.

The NFL oddsmakers have the game total for this tilt set at 54.5 and that is scary, but neither team has a defense that can stop the pass or the run. Expect a shootout.
