New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers. This is Part 1 of the “Steelers’ Revenge Tour”. The Pats embarrassed my Steelers last season in prime time. Brady and his long, girlish hair passed for over 300 yards and was primarily responsible for the beating. I think (and hope) that my Steelers learned a lesson from last year’s beat-down. In fact, here’s to Dick LeBeau and the defense actually making adjustments and come out fired up.
Keep in mind the Steelers’ offense can put up points on teams quickly. And last I checked, the Pats have the worst defense statistically in the league. In a game that means so much in the AFC, look for my Steelers’ pride to kick in and return the favor. Steelers 30, Patriots 27.
Ass-Whupping of the Week
New Orleans Saints over St. Louis Rams. Man, talk about a scheduling hookup. I don’t know what hoodoo spirit the Saints have been praying to as of late, but they are about to have two bye weeks in a row. If the Saints hung 62 points on a team that has a little bit of talent (the Colts), just think of how many they will score on a team that has even LESS talent. Saints 75, Lambs 3.
Titans over Colts
Giants over Dolphins
Panthers over Vikings (in “Cam we trust”)
Ravens over Cardinals
Texans over Jaguars
Bills over Redskins
Lions over Broncos
49ers over Browns
Bengals over Seahawks
Eagles over Cowboys (HUGE NFC East matchup)
Chargers over Chiefs (sorry, but I am not buying KC’s resurgence)
