Pittsburgh Steelers

AFC North

D

Overall Team DVOA

-10.2% 23rd

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Defense? Headed for some positive regression in our eyes. Quarterback situation? Still shaky with Kenny Pickett running with the threes at times in OTAs and minicamp, and Mitch Trubisky locked in as a starter. Coaching staff Still good enough to boost the team to the point where nobody will be comfortable picking them to bottom out. The Steelers are an early Bill O'Brien-era Texans team without an AFC South to play in. -- Rivers McCown
