The Pittsburgh Steelers are listed as four point favorites with the total set at over 47.5 for Week 8's matchup against the Washington Redskins, according to SB Nation odds powered by OddsShark.com. OddsShark also has the Steelers listed as the favorite (currently set at 4.5) with the total set at over 47.5.

Washington will be entering the game fresh off a disappointing loss against the New York Giants in Week 7. After rookie standout Robert Griffin III completed a 30-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss to put the Redskins ahead, Eli Manning and Victor Cruz managed to one-up them with a 70-yard touchdown that ultimately decided the game.

Pittsburgh managed to return to .500 after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday night. After having three consecutive games decided by three points or less, the Steelers managed to defeat their division rivals by a touchdown. On Sunday, they will look to win consecutive games for the first time this season.
