The Pittsburgh Steelers dismantled the Cleveland Browns 38-7 in an AFC North showdown. The Steelers moved to 5-0 for the first time since 1978. Some Black and Yellow faithful might remember that squad. They opened their season with seven straight wins, finished 14-2 and beat the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl XIII. Happy memories.
The current iteration of the Steelers has been good to bettors (4-1 ATS) and has its fan base stoked. That’s what happens when you are one of three remaining undefeated teams in the NFL. The Steelers will face off with the one other unbeaten AFC team on Sunday when they visit the Tennessee Titans. Although things have been sunny for the Steelers, on Sunday, they lost linebacker/defensive play caller Devin Bush for the year to a torn ACL.
Opening lines from the PA online sportsbooks have the Steelers as 1.5-point favorites against the Titans.
Road favorites against the team that lost in the AFC Championship last year? Hey, it’s no wonder Steelers Twitter is excited.
