Are the Pittsburgh Steelers and Russell Wilson AFC Contenders in the 2024 Season?

The Pittsburgh Steelers were plagued with awful quarterback play in the 2023 season as the group of Kenny Pickett, Mason Rudolph, and Mitchell Trubisky combined for 3,421 passing yards, just 13 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions.

Despite that, the Steelers finished 10-7 and made the playoffs -- where they were eliminated by the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card Round.

Now, the Steelers head into the 2024 season presumably in a better situation at quarterback with Super Bowl Champion Russell Wilson and Justin Fields both on the roster.

While Wilson was released by the Denver Broncos in March, the former All-Pro still put up 3,070 passing yards, 26 passing touchdowns and just 8 eight interceptions in 2023 despite missing two games -- production that would be a major upgrade for the Steelers.

On Tuesday's episode of Up & Adams, former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf shared why he isn't sleeping on Pittsburgh in the 2024 season.

Here's the clip discussed above:

FanDuel Sportsbook isn't as big of believers in Pittsburgh as the Steelers have +164 odds to make the NFL playoffs and have the worst odds to win the AFC North at +650.
