The Pittsburgh Steelers are the lone remaining undefeated team in the NFL after knocking off the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. Of course, with no losses as the midway point approaches, rumblings start to surface about historic accomplishments.

FanDuel Sportsbook has released odds on whether or not the Steelers pull off the incredible feat of a 16-0 regular season, and those odds are shockingly realistic.

Ahead of Week 8's meeting with the Baltimore Ravens, the Steelers are +2500 to go a perfect 16-0.

Those odds are obviously still a long-shot. Considering Pittsburgh would still need another 10 wins (including two against the Baltimore Ravens), though, +2500 is pretty shockingly low.

Armed with the NFL's No. 2 defense by Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics and an offense that ranks No. 6 with 30.5 points per game, there's no doubting whether or not the Steelers are for real. Now the question is whether they're a great team or a historically great team.
