Game Thread, Week 16: St. Louis Rams

I think it says something when it takes Sterling Sharpe to be the rational one in the crowd. Earlier today on NFL Network, when answering the inevitable "What's wrong with the Steelers?!?" question, he offered this (paraphrasing): "It's all about perspective. When a team starts 4-1, the expectations go through the roof; if Pittsburgh had come out of the gate 1-4, everybody would be talking about what a great team this is. Bottom line: They're 9-5."

So that's a swell point, but it won't mean much if Pittsburgh lays an egg tonight. Not to worry, though: I have a good feeling about this one.

Prediction: Steelers 98 Rams 5
