Who I like Arizona version

This game comes down to simple terms for me: If the Steelers don't let Beanie Wells run wild, they will beat the Cardinals.

Now, Wells is having a fine season. He's already scored six touchdowns and is averaging five yards per carry.

But he's not the style of back the Steelers have trouble with. In other words, he's going to be where the Steelers think he'll be.

Wells isn't a plodder by any means, but he's not very shifty, either. He's a big, strong power back with decent speed. He won't be cutting back against the grain ala. Ray Rice, Arian Foster and Maurice Jones-Drew because that's not his style.

And the Steelers should score some points against the Cardinals, who are in the bottom third of the league in both run and pass defense.

That's why I like Pittsburgh, 27-17

Even with Arizona being in the bottom third in the league in both run & pass defense,
the Steelers will still struggle to win, if they win. Because that is there style of play. Play to level of the competion. But here is hope that they do win to keep the pace with the Rarbirds.

Even though the Cards are tough at home, we pull away in the 4th quarter for once...

This game is going to be closer than we all really want it to be but the Steelers have not performed well on the road at all this season. I expect Ben and Young Money to have a good solid day and I expect to see the D get a couple of TO's but as usual the team will allow a far inferior team to hang around until the end!
