The Pittsburgh Steelers have their work cut out for them in a tough Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Rams, but a win will come if they follow these keys to victory.

As we enter Week 10 of the NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers sit in an interesting position. After a 1-4 start that put them way behind in the playoff race, the team has battled back to .500, showing plenty of heart and resiliency along the way. Head coach Mike Tomlin has done a splendid job keeping the locker room together while a once-leaky defense has been reinvigorated by an early-season trade for Minkah Fitzpatrick and breakouts from some previously disappointing players. After losing Ben Roethlisberger for the season, nobody would have been shocked to see the Steelers completely fall apart. After their recent play though, it’s clear that this is a team that believes in themselves.

This week presents a tough challenge for the Steelers and it will take a total team effort to keep their current winning streak alive. Going against a Los Angeles Rams team fresh off a bye week is no small task, especially now that Jalen Ramsey has had a few weeks to really learn L.A.’s defensive system. The Steelers haven’t exactly been world-beaters on offense so this matchup against the Rams’ talented defense is one in which they must avoid the same mistakes they’ve made all season long.

With that in mind, don’t rule the Steelers out in this one. The Rams, though talented, aren’t the same team that made it to the Super Bowl last season. Their offense hasn’t looked like the same unit that dominated last year and there have been some uncharacteristic losses and close games. If the Steelers can follow these keys to victory, we might see them pull off the upset and keep their winning streak going.
