**Odds as of 09/27/2021**
The Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) will head to Wisconsin to face the Green Bay Packers (2-1) at Lambeau Field in an exciting Week 4 matchup of two potential Hall of Fame quarterbacks.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers are coming off a disappointing 24-10 loss to the Bengals, while Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are celebrating a walk-off field goal win against the San Francisco 49ers. Early NFL odds and lines have Green Bay as the home favorite at 7, with the total set at 45½.
Pittsburgh was stunned at home by second-year quarterback Joe Burrow and the Bengals. Cincinnati’s defense constantly pressured Roethlisberger and forced him to get rid of the ball early. Ultimately,Pittsburgh’s offensive line could not hold up, resulting in two sacks and two interceptions of Roethlisberger.
The Steelers’ defense gave up two scoring passes to Ja’Marr Chase and Burrow threw for three touchdowns. Pittsburgh’s defense offered little resistance to Bengals running back Joe Mixon, who picked up 90 yards and averaged 5.0 yards per carry.
Green Bay played phenomenal in prime time as Rodgers and the Packer offense stormed out to a 17-0 lead in the first half. Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams were clearly in sync all night as they connected on 12 passes for 132 yards and one touchdown. Mason Crosby was ultimately the hero, nailing a 51-yard field goal to win the game as time expired.
Although the defense still has some question marks, Jaire Alexander picked off 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on a deep ball that resulted in a touchdown just moments later. The pass rush, led by Kenny Clark, also impressed, limiting 49ers rushers to just 67 yards on the ground.
