The Oakland Raiders are coming off of their BYE week and hopefully they will have some guys healthy on their offensive line. They should expect to have their starting center back in the lineup and that should give Terrelle Pryor a little more room to operate. The Pittsburgh Steelers were hunting for their first win a couple of weeks ago and Mike Tomlin cut out all fun things in the locker room and now the team has 2 straight wins and one of those victories coming against the division rival Baltimore Ravens. It should be a good battle between these two teams in Oakland.

Raiders Player to Watch: Terrelle Pryor
The Oakland Raiders success all depends on the play of Terrelle Pryor. He doesn’t need a ton of time to throw the football, but he still needs a little bit of time to set up. Against the Kansas City Chiefs, Pryor would step back and have guys in his face immediately. His offensive line is healthier now and he should get some time to create something on offense.
Steelers Player to Watch: Le’Veon Bell
It is not a coincidence that the Steelers are playing well with the running game playing better. Le’Veon Bell is part of the reason why the Steelers have been able to establish a ground game. Bell spent the first part of the season on the sideline with a foot injury, but he has been able to suit up lately and has helped revive the Steelers offense. He has 184 yards on the ground and a pair of touchdowns.
The Steelers finally have things rolling in the right direction and they will continue their solid play for a win against the Raiders. The Raiders are a couple of players away from being a solid squad, but they need to get those players first.
Steelers 17, Raiders 13
