Most online experts are picking the Lions to beat the Steelers this week.

The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Detroit Lions in Week 11, and most people expect the Lions to come away with a road victory.

Keepers Week 11

Matt Ufford offers you fantasy advice on Riley Cooper, Colin Kaepernick, Bills running backs and more.

The Lions grabbed a huge divisional win over the Chicago Bears last week and are now alone atop of the NFC North at 6-3. They have a chance to extend that lead with the Bears and Packers both crippled by injuries. The Steelers are just playing out the string at this point, but they did improve to 3-6 with a solid win over the Buffalo Bills. The defense had a much better effort after getting shellacked by the Patriots, but they have a much bigger challenge going up against Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush.

Detroit is the heavy favorite to win this one. They are unanimous picks on SB Nation's panel of experts and five out of eight analysts on ESPN are going with them as well. Over at CBS Sports, six out of nine experts are picking the Lions to win.
