Pittsburgh had a rare down year in 2022, finishing 19th in scoring among DSTs. T.J. Watt missed a large chunk of the season, and it hurt them dramatically. But with him back in the fold along with additional improvements in the secondary, I'd anticipate a major return to form for the Steel Curtain. They open the year as home underdogs to a 49ers team that still doesn't know who their starting QB will be. After that they play Cleveland at home. Then they hit the road versus LV/HOU. Solid opening stretch.
