After 6 weeks of the NFL regular season, we can point out, although it is hard to admit it, that the season has started under a common denominator: mediocrity in some teams.
We say this because so far this season, 18 teams, 56.2% of the league, have 2-4 or 3-3 records. With the Colts being in the middle of it, after their week 1 tie against Houston.
Currently, we have 3 division leaders with 3-3 records (Ravens, Buccaneers, and 49ers), while only 4 teams can boast that they have 5 wins or more in these first 6 weeks of competition (Eagles, Giants, Vikings, and Bills).
If this trend continues for the remainder of the season, we could have an unprecedented postseason with one or more teams qualifying with only 9 wins in this regular season.
Now, in this week 7 we will have a very exciting game between two teams that need to have a winning streak to fight to be at the top of their respective divisions, Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins, which will be played this Sunday, October 23, 2022, at Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Dolphins at 08:20 pm ET.

Why Bet on the Steelers
The Steelers, who were supposed to be fighting for the division lead, have started the season with many problems and, on top of that, they have lost quarterback Kenny Pickett, who was injured in the Week 6 game against the Buccaneers with a brain contusion.
Likewise, Pittsburg managed to come away with a victory against a Buccaneers team that has not found the desired rhythm of play.
The Steelers, with their 2-4 record, are in last place in the AFC North, but their division leader has a 3-3 record, so if they get on a winning streak, they could easily climb to the top of the standings.
Why Bet on the Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins have lost their last 3 games and have slipped from the top of the AFC to simply trying to keep their heads above water. With a 3-3 record on the season, Miami has struggled in recent weeks, losing to the Cincinnati Bengals, the New York Jets, and, in the last week to the Minnesota Vikings. The offense has been stagnant and can’t seem to find a rhythm.
But, in this week 7, the Dolphins have some good news, and that is, their starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, will return to the starting lineup for Sunday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, after leaving the game against the Bengals with a concussion.
They hope that with the addition of Tagovailoa, their offensive woes will be over, and they will get back to winning ways.
Final Betting Analysis: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Miami Dolphins
Sunday’s star matchup will be between the Steelers and Dolphins, where Tua Tagovailoa will return to the control of the Dolphins and will face a team that comes motivated after defeating Tom Brady’s Buccaneers.
At MyBookie.ag we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Miami Dolphins at -330, while Pittsburgh Steelers start at +255.
Miami’s offense has seen a sharp decline without Tagovailoa on the field, so, this game is expected to be again that team that won comfortably the first 3 games of the season.
That is why our pick for this game is a Miami Dolphins victory, and we predict a score of 20-17.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Miami Dolphins. If you put $100 on the Dolphins at -330, you’ll be looking at a $30.30 win with a total payout of $130.30.
