The Atlanta Falcons won’t play their Week 14 game until Monday night, but already the Pittsburgh Steelers have been installed as 1.5-point road favorites over them ahead of their Week 15 matchup, according to pregame.com.
The Falcons will have their hands full with the Green Bay Packers Monday night and the Steelers will have the advantage of one extra day of rest as a result.
The Steelers had that same advantage ahead of their Week 13 home game against the New Orleans Saints, but still managed to lose.
The Steelers head into Week 15 with a dismal 1-2 record against the weak NFC South. In order to keep a hold of a potential AFC playoff spot, they’ll have to increase that record to 2-2 with a win next Sunday in Atlanta. The Falcons will enter that game with an 0-3 record this season against the AFC North.
