After all of their early-season problems, the Steelers are back into playoff contention. Pittsburgh has been winning games and covering NFL bets to get back into the race. The solid defense has served to cover for an offense that clearly misses injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. In the same way, the Rams have gotten back into form after a three-week slump. Los Angeles head coach Sean McVay has been humbled after being hailed as a genius last year. Problematic is a powerful NFC West division that is lead by the 49ers and Seahawks. LA has no margin for error.
