• With starting QB Kenny Pickett expected to miss up to a month after undergoing ankle surgery on December 4, it could be up to backup Mitchell Trubisky to lead the playoff charge.
  • Trubisky brings more of a dual-threat element to the Steelers offense compared to Pickett, and he has also been a more efficient passer in his career.
  • A much-improved running game, talented air weapons, an opportunistic defense, and a relatively easy remaining schedule should all contribute to helping Trubisky lead the team to the postseason.
