AT PITTSBURGH (5-2-1)
TV: Ch. 11, NFL Network, 5:15 p.m. PST.
Line: Steelers by 4.
Sam Farmer’s pick: The Steelers, who are starting to figure it out with James Conner at running back, rarely lose in primetime at home. Carolina plays hard for Ron Rivera and will keep this close, but Pittsburgh will make a few more plays. Steelers 24, Panthers 21
