“This schedule looks very taunting for the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said Woodson. “You’ve got to think, they have not had three losing seasons in back-to-back-to-back years since 1969 through 1971.
“This is a critical time for them. 8-8 the last two years, not going to the post seasons, they got to get some wins. They got to win at home and you got to win in the division.”
As for Woodson’s game by game prediction for the Steelers, he has them going 1-2 in the first three games to start the season, but then has them winning seven of their next eight with the only loss during that stretch coming at home against the Indianapolis Colts.
After back-to-back losses to the New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals, however, Woodson has the Steelers closing out the 2014 regular-season with three straight wins to finish the year at 11-5.
