Pittsburgh Steelers odds
The Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5) can match the record of the Buffalo Bills (9-4) with a win Sunday night at Heinz Field. Pittsburgh has won seven of eight since a 1-4 start that included the loss of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (elbow surgery). Quarterback Devlin â€œDuckâ€ Hodges will make his fourth start after winning his first three. He has operated largely without running back James Conner (shoulder) and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), who could be set to return after practicing in full on Wednesday. The cornerstone has been the defense, which ranks fifth with 310.9 yards allowed per game. Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick is tied for the NFL lead with five interceptions. Linebacker T.J. Watt is among the league leaders with 12.5 sacks.
