The Pittsburgh Steelers enter Week 10 with a 4-4 record and on Sunday at Heinz Field they’ll attempt to move ahead of .500 for the first time this season when they host the 5-3 Los Angeles Rams, who were on a bye last week. The Rams opened as 3.5-point consensus road favorites over the Steelers, according to vegasinsider.com.
After starting the season 3-0, the Rams lost three consecutive games. They did rebound to win their last two games against the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals ahead of their Week 9 bye, however.
For the season, Rams quarterback Jared Goff has completed 61.1% of all pass attempts for 2367 yards with 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Goff has been sacked 12 times this season.
The Rams leading pass catcher this season is wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who has 58 receptions for 792 yards and five touchdowns. The Rams leading rusher through eight games played is running back Todd Gurley, who has rushed for 355 yards and six touchdowns on 92 total carries.
Defensively for the Rams, linebacker Cory Littleton leads the team in total tackles with 66. Littleton also has two of the team’s six interceptions so far this season and had forced a fumble. Linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. leads the Rams in sacks entering Week 10 with 6.5 with fellow linebacker Clay Matthews right behind him with 6.
The Rams lead the all-time franchise series against the Steelers 15-9-2 and that includes the one Super Bowl meeting between the two teams to close out the 1979 season. However, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is 3-0 versus the Rams. All three of those wins came with the Rams franchise being in St. Louis.
