OVER/UNDER: Predicting some specific stats for the Steelers in 2020

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping 2020 treats them better than 2019, and there are some key players who need to step up. We take a look into the stats surrounding those players.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were close to doing the near impossible in 2019 after losing Ben Roethlisberger to injury in Week 2 and almost making the playoffs with a combination of Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges at quarterback.

As the team approaches another lengthy offseason leading up to 2020, there are key contributors, and statistics, which are worth debating as to whether the team will turn things around next year, or if missing the playoffs is now the new norm.

This is where the OVER/UNDER game comes in!

Below you will see different scenarios ranging from individual player stats, health of players or team statistics. How you play is simple: Select whether you believe the scenario will be OVER or UNDER in the coming year.

An example for those who have never participated in this type of endeavor before:

Before the start of the 2019 season on our Steelers Preview podcast we talked about Diontae Johnson’s potential stat line in 2019. We set the OVER/UNDER line at 3 touchdowns for the rookie from Toledo. Johnson ended the season with 5 touchdowns, which would have made those who took the OVER correct.
