NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Pittsburgh. According to latest NFL trends, the Steelers are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 road games versus a team with a winning home record, while the Jets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games versus a team with a losing record. Geno Smith and the Jets were impressive on Monday night in Atlanta but they were also facing a Falcons team without their starting left tackle, without Steven Jackson, with a hobbled Roddy White and without several key starters on defense. For Smith to win on the road as a rookie QB was impressive, but the public is seemingly overreacting to the win. The Steelers have been a mess this season but they’re coming off the bye and should pick up their first win today.
