Los Angeles RB Melvin Gordon is dealing with an MCL sprain and could miss the next couple of weeks. Both teams have playmakers on the offensive side of the ball and very underrated defenses. With Gordon out, look for the under to cash. Final Score Prediction, Pittsburgh Steelers win but we like the under total best 24-20.
