The San Francisco 49ers, already secure in a playoff spot, lost to the Arizona Cardinals last week. Will they be able to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers?
The San Francisco 49ers locked up the NFC West title a couple of weeks ago, but they were unable to overcome the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday., losing a 21-19 game. If the Cardinals proved a surprising matchup in that game, this Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will be an early playoff test. The 49ers are 2.5 point favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football, according to Odds Shark.
An over/under for this game has yet to be set, but it probably won't be too high. The Niners and the Steelers are Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, in point allowed at 14.0 and 15.2. This could certainly turn into one of the better regular season battle.
