Pittsburgh went 9-7-1 final season, good for second within the AFC North and the ultimate playoff seed, however misplaced to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs within the wild-card spherical. Trubisky, who would be the workforce's beginning QB in its Week 1 matchup with the Bengals, might be throwing to extensive receivers Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and rookie George Pickens and tight finish Pat Freiermuth. Second-year working again Najee Harris, whose 307 speeding makes an attempt have been second within the NFL in 2021, might be alongside Trubisky.

Head coach Mike Tomlin's protection is headlined by Professional Bowlers T.J. Watt, Minkah Fitzpatrick and Cameron Heyward. Nonetheless, the workforce hasn't gained a playoff sport since 2016 and can possible have stiff competitors within the AFC North this season.

Cincinnati gained the AFC final season with quarterback Joe Burrow, who's getting into his third season. The Ravens have gained eight-plus video games in every of quarterback Lamar Jackson's 4 seasons within the league. Whereas Deshaun Watson is suspended for the primary 11 video games of the season, the Cleveland Browns have a decent protection led by Professional Bowlers Myles Garrett and Denzel Ward.

Cowherd sees 2022 being extra of the identical for Pittsburgh: a aggressive however tedious workforce that hovers round .500. The Steelers haven't had a single shedding season below Tomlin (15 years).

They will be principally well-coached, very competent, one solution to win, meh at quarterback in large spots, and that is what they're going to be. They will be Pittsburgh. 

"They don't seem to be gifted sufficient offensively on the O-line or playcalling … to be a San Francisco, however they will not be a catastrophe like Denver [was without Peyton Manning] as a result of, once more, Deshaun Watson's not enjoying, the schedule's bought a number of Ws and Tomlin's constructed up a number of belief with the gamers. They play laborious, they're all the time good while you doubt 'em, typically not nearly as good after they're favored. However I believe Pittsburgh goes to be what they have been two of the final three years simply hovering round .500."
