What The Linemakers are saying: The Steelers, coming off last week’s win in Baltimore, have some momentum built up in a very pivotal point of their season, and we look for Ben Roethlisberger to come back from injury and capitalize on it. The Chargers offense is a mess, and San Diego has failed to cover in six of its last eight games. But their defense has been decent, and the Steelers’ D has been typically fantastic. Also, Pittsburgh is an astounding 10-1 to the UNDER over its last 11 home games. So we have a lean to the UNDER.
Seattle is in position for the final wild-card spot and hopes one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL will help solidify that. The Seahawks, who are 5-0 straight up and ATS at CenturyLink Field, have a one-game cushion over four teams - Washington, Dallas, Minnesota and Tampa Bay. Arizona, which has lost eight straight since a 4-0 start, has spun its quarterback carousel again. Coach Ken Whisenhunt announced Wednesday he will go back to John Skelton, who was 1-4 as a starter before being benched for rookie Ryan Lindley. These teams have played under the total in their last four meetings.
The Lions haven't won a game at Lambeau Field since 1991. That's s streak of 20 straight losses, 21 counting a playoff game in 1994. But injuries are rearing their head for Green Bay, which is expected to be without wideout Jordy Nelson (hamstring), LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) and RB James Starks (knee) on Sunday night. The Lions are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games versus NFC North foes.
