An early look at Steelers’ next 3 opponents following a Week 8 win

Pittsburgh will play three consecutive games at Acrisure Stadium.

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at New Orleans Saints Matthew Hinton-USA TODAY Sports

There’s no place like home! It’s rare in the NFL to play three straight games at home, but following a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Rams, the Pittsburgh Steelers will return to the North Shore to do just that. Let’s take an early look at their opponents.

Week 9 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Sunday, October 29, 1 p.m. ET

Jacksonville is coming off a 31-24 win over the New Orleans Saints last Thursday. The Jaguars are one of the NFL’s hottest teams, bringing a four-game winning streak into the Burgh. That is the second-longest current streak in the NFL, behind the Kansas City Chiefs, who have won six consecutive games.

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence has thrown for five touchdowns to just one interception in his last four contests.

The much-maligned Steelers secondary will be tested by wide receivers Calvin Ridley, Christian Kirk, and tight end Evan Engram, who have combined for 107 catches through just seven weeks!

Jacksonville has opened as a two-and-a-half-point favorite.

Week 10 vs. Tennessee Titans

Thursday, November 2, 8:15 p.m. ET

The Steelers will play their first Thursday Night contest of the year as they kick off November, welcoming in a Titans team that currently sits at 2-4, guaranteeing they will be under .500 whenever they travel to Pittsburgh.

Titans’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been under the microscope lately for his poor play, as he has thrown for just two touchdowns to seven interceptions in six games. However, Tannehill is currently dealing with an ankle injury, that puts his status in question for the matchup against Pittsburgh two Sundays from now.

Tennessee is gearing up for second-year quarterback Malik Willis, or rookie Will Levis, to start this coming weekend against the Falcons.

The Steelers will likely be favored in this matchup for the first time since week four against the Houston Texans.

Week 11 vs. Green Bay Packers

Sunday, November 12, 1 p.m. ET

The final contest in this three-game stretch will come against the NFC North’s Packers, who are currently riding a three-game losing streak. Quarterback Jordan Love has thrown seven combined interceptions in his last four games, so this opportunistic Steelers defense, led by TJ Watt, will have a chance to set the tone, as they’ve done frequently throughout the season.
