PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – 93.7 The Fan NFL Insider John Clayton picks the Steelers to finish the season 11-5 this year.

Listen to your team news NOW.

“When I look at the Steelers right now, they would be my third seed in the AFC. Because you’d have New England, Kansas City, and then Pittsburgh.,” Clayton told the PM Team.

Clayton picks New England to beat the Steelers on Sunday because they have home field advantage and great weapons.

“First it helps having the greatest quarterback of all time in Tom Brady and then having the greatest coach of all time in Bill Belichick,” said Clayton.

Other than Bill Belichick's brain John thinks the Patriots defense will be good and a lot of his reasoning is because of their schedule.

“They are playing young quarterbacks in their division so they should go 6-0 in their division.”

Clayton also picks New England to win Sunday because of the new look Steelers.

“Some of the newness that comes into the Steelers offense, Bill (Belichick) does a great job taking away the best players so he will probably take away Juju and put all the pressure on Washington and the other receivers.”
