The Lions are a mystery as they are a team that could come into Pittsburgh and make plays all over the field or they could be a team that underachieves once again like they did in 2012.

The Steelers are going to have problems with Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, but coming off of two straight losses, I would expect them to be clicking offensively.

Roethlisberger will have a huge day against an improved Lions defense, but that Detroit secondary is still the weak spot and Big Ben will take advantage.

The Steelers get back on track by winning a track meet.

Prediction: Steelers 34-24 (6-4)
