Conor Orr of Sports Illustrated has the Steelers going 9-8 in 2022 and finishing third in the AFC North. Orr predicts the Steelers will start the season 2-6 and finish 7-2. “A Mike Tomlin team doesn’t lay down. And … by then it will be Kenny Pickett time,” Orr explained on the second-half turnaround. “Pickett has shown a sharp amount of accuracy in the short and middle range, which should help him fare especially well against the blitz-averse Bengals and Colts, aiding the Steelers in a few win-ugly contests.” Orr has the Ravens winning the AFC North at 12-5, followed by the Bengals at 11-6 and the Browns finishing last at 7-10.
