The Steelers are on a short week after their 26-22 win Monday night against the Browns. In that victory their defense set the tone coming up with two touchdowns. 

Linebacker Alex Highsmith started things off when he hauled in a tipped pass from Deshaun Watson and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown on the first play of the game. Then in the fourth quarter, with the Steelers trailing 22-19 T.J. Watt scooped up a Watson fumble, forced by Highsmith and took that to the house for the winning score. 

While the defense had a statement game last week, Pittsburgh’s offense is still waiting to break out. Running back Najee Harris is not off to a great start, leading a Steeler run game ranked second worst in the NFL while second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett has posted the fourth worst passer rating in the league. 

After squeaking out a 17-16 win over the Broncos in week one, the Raiders are now looking to rebound from a 38-10 drubbing by the Bills last week in Buffalo. The Las Vegas defense struggled mightily against Josh Allen and the Bills passing attack allowing Allen to post a 124 passer rating.  

Like the Steelers, the Raiders are trying to get their offense going. Running back Josh Jacob ran for negative yardage, losing two yards on 9 carries against the Bills while quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo 

These teams enter this matchup with the same record and similar in many other categories. Offensively the Steelers are ranked 31st in the NFL while the Raiders are 30th. Defensively, the Steelers are ranked 23rd in points allowed, with the Raiders ranked 25th. 

Draft Kings also sees these teams as close. They have the Raiders as 3-point home favorites against the Steelers. The over/under is set at 43.5.
