The top teams in the AFC North collide on Sunday afternoon when the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers square off with the Baltimore Ravens in a key divisional showdown at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Steelers (6-0) lead the division by one game over the Ravens (5-1). Pittsburgh has ridden an elite defense and the steady play of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Meanwhile Baltimore has been led by a dominant running game starting with quarterback Lamar Jackson.
For Sunday, William Hill has set the total for Roethlisberger's passing yards at 254.5 (-115 over-under) and the total for Jackson's rushing yards at 62.5 (-115 over-under). Those are just two of hundreds of different NFL player prop bet opportunities for Week 8 of the season.

Top NFL player prop bets for Week 8
Ryan loves Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow to go over 1.5 total passing touchdowns (-170) in Cincinnati's game against Tennessee. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner has thrown nine touchdowns in seven games this season and has three games with multiple touchdown passes. The Titans have allowed 15 passing touchdowns this season.
"Burrow will be without running back Joe Mixon again this week, which makes you have to like this prop even more," Ryan tells SportsLine. "With Cincinnati a seven-point home dog in a game with a 51.5 spread, the game script suggests Burrow is going to be chucking it, and two touchdowns seems more than reasonable. I will take him to throw three if I can find it."
