The Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Football Team will lock horns in Week 13 at Heinz Field, and the game originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. will be played on Monday at 5 p.m. ET.

The Steelers look to remain perfect on the season, and advance their record to 12-0 on the season, by beating Washington, but there is a lot of uncertainly surrounding the game. Ben Roethlisberger didn’t practice all week, James Conner remains out and it looks like Chris Boswell won’t be playing Sunday due to a hip injury.

With that said, time to take a look at who the NFL experts like in this inter-conference matchup...

There are some experts who give a solid explanation of their pick, and CBS’ Pete Prisco does that every week. Take a look at his pick:

The Steelers are undefeated, but they didn’t look good against the Ravens Wednesday afternoon. Now they have a tough turnaround against a rested team. Even so, I think the Steelers will limit what Washington does on offense and they find a way to pull away.

Pick: Steelers 26, Washington 13

The Sporting News also provides weekly picks. Take a look at who they like in Steelers vs. Washington:

The Steelers will be playing on a five-day week after the Tuesday game with the Ravens, and that is not an easy spot against a Washington team that had the Thanksgiving weekend off. It’s difficult to gauge how the teams will react to the preparation times, but the Steelers are still the better team at home. It’s closer than expected.

Pick: Steelers 27, Washington 20

There are obviously those sites which take a look at the upcoming game with less of a fine toothed comb, and just make a general pick. For sites like that, you look at the largest expert panel at ESPN, and it is a clean sweep for the Steelers at home against Washington.

Even the haters here at SB Nation are all-in on the Steelers in Week 13 to beat Washington and keep their pristine record in tact heading into a huge game vs. the Bills in Week 14 on Sunday Night Football.

But these are just a couple of sites among hundreds of others who put out expert picks on a weekly basis. What about all those other sites? This is where NFL Pick Watch comes in, a site which compiles all NFL expert picks and puts them into an easy-to-read chart for fans to enjoy.

According to NFL Pick Watch, 93% of experts like the Steelers to beat Washington at Heinz Field Wednesday evening. Will this come to fruition? Only time will tell, but it is clear the experts like the 11-0 Steelers to beat the 4-7 Washington Football Team.
