Rams: What are the Chances...?

Tonight the Steelers battle the Rams in St. Louis, and if history is any indication, the Steelers are destined to lose. Pittsburgh is 0-11-1 on the road and just 6-17-2 overall versus the Rams. It's also worth noting that the team is just 2-4 away from home this year. And it's a concern that St. Louis possesses the kind of skill position players that could give Pittsburgh's defense problems. But I believe there's a good chance that Mike Tomlin & company will get it together this week, which is why "What are the Chances...?" is giving the Steelers a 60 percent chance of winning tonight. Of course, a loss would mean the first three-game losing streak in Tomlin's head coaching career, at which point fans will start questioning whether the Rooney's made the right choice. But that's all nonsense, because Ben Roethlisberger and Dick LeBeau have consistently made this team look better than it really is.
