Pittsburgh comes off a 26-14 loss to the Ravens on Sunday night to drop its record to 1-2-1 straight-up and 1-3 ATS and the team is in some disarray as it waits to see what Le'Veon Bell is going to do. The Steelers scored all their points in the second quarter and Joe Flacco had no trouble dissecting the Pittsburgh defense as he completed 28-of-42 passes for 363 yards with two touchdowns and no picks. Ben Roethlisberger finished only 27-for-47 for 274 yards with a TD and interception. The Steelers were held to an incredible 19 rushing yards on 11 carries as the absence of Bell was obvious. Andy Dalton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green with seven seconds remaining to give Atlanta its second heartbreaking loss in a row as it lost in overtime to New Orleans the week before. Surprisingly, the Steelers are 0-7 ATS their last seven home games dating to last season and 1-5 ATS their last six overall. Also, the Falcons have gone UNDER five road games in a row and they are 21-9 UNDER their last 30 games after a loss. The Steelers are 21-6 UNDER their last 27 October games and they have stayed UNDER 21 of their last 29 versus teams with losing records. Take the Falcons and UNDER.
