Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is a major reason why the Pittsburgh Steelers have enjoyed tremendous success recently against rookie quarterbacks, which is an important angle to handicap when making your against-the-spread picks this weekend.

The Steelers are currently 4.5-point home favorites against the Washington Redskins in the Week 8 NFL betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 47 in the market.

LeBeau has led the franchise to a 12-1 record against first-year signal-callers since the 2004 campaign, with the Steel Curtain limiting those players to a 59.2 passer rating.

Let's take a closer look at this matchup from a betting perspective, while offering a pro football prediction along the way.
