3 REASON WHY THE STEELERS WILL WIN

1) Defense A week after getting embarrassed by the Patriots and Tom Brady, the unit wants to get back to being one of the best defenses in the league.

2) Mike Wallace With CB Nnamdi Asomugha nursing an ankle injury, the Steelers could take advantage of Wallace's speed to get deep on the average Oakland secondary.

3) Chris Kemoeatu The left guard is expected back in the lineup and will help a Steelers run game that was held to 76 yards last week.

3 REASONS WHY THE STEELERS WILL LOSE

1) Richard Seymour The 31-year-old veteran has been absolutely dominant. He is on pace for a career high 78 tackles and nearly 10 sacks.

2) Darren McFadden McFadden is averaging 5.4 yards per carry and will be facing a Steelers run defense that gave up 100 yards last week against New England.

3) Jason Campbell The Steelers have allowed 272.6 passing yards per game since Oct. 17. Campbell has thrown five TDs and one interception during a three-game winning streak.
