Two teams who battled it out for 70 minutes only for their game to end in a tie last year will clash on Sunday in the 2022 NFL preseason finale on Paramount+ and CBS. The Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) and Detroit Lions (1-1) played to a 16-16 tie in Week 10 of 2021, which remains as the NFL‘s last tie game. Even more than a victory, the Lions and Steelers mostly want an injury-free game with the 2022 NFL season kicking off September 11 for both teams.

Preseason Week 3 NFL picks for Steelers vs. Lions
Before you tune in to Sunday’s Lions vs. Steelers game, you need to see the NFL picks from R.J. White. White, a Fantasy and gambling editor for CBS Sports and SportsLine, went 445-378-24 on his ATS picks from 2017-21, which returned $2,542 to $100 players.
It’s no surprise, as White has cashed huge twice in the world’s most prestigious football handicapping competition, the Las Vegas SuperContest. White also cashed big on his NFL futures in 2021, including nailing Jonathan Taylor as the NFL rushing leader at 10-1. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Steelers vs. Lions, White is backing the Steelers (-5.5) to cover the spread. Detroit had a bottom-four defense in points allowed and yards allowed last year, and its preseason performance doesn’t indicate that side of the ball has made dramatic improvements. Last week, the team was picked apart by a Colts squad that rested Matt Ryan, Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. and was fortunate to escape with a one-point win.
Indianapolis’ third and fourth-string QBs combined for three touchdowns and no picks, and neither player may even survive final cuts. Now, the Lions’ defense will match up with a Steelers team whose three QBs have combined for six TDs versus no interceptions. Mitchell Trubisky, Kenny Pickett and Mason Rudolph all have a preseason passer ratings north of 100 and should all see the field on Sunday.
On the other hand, Lions’ starting QB Jared Goff will not suit up, leaving the offense in the hands of career backup David Blough. Pittsburgh led the NFL in sacks (55) last year, and the inexperienced Blough will be overmatched.
“The Lions’ defense was dominated by a collection of less-than-impressive quarterbacks in the Colts game, and this group should be a step up,” White told SportsLine. “I think the Steelers take a big lead early, and I don’t have confidence in Blough tightening the game enough to cover the number.” Stream the game now here.
