Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Leg one: Pittsburgh Steelers ML (-202)
So the place on earth do the Pittsburgh Steelers go from right here? Any scale they graded themselves on going into the season was crushed by the New England Patriots in Week 1. The Patriots beat the Steelers on Sunday evening 33-Three in what was a fully embarrassing efficiency by Massive Ben and firm.
The offense regarded out of sync, the protection regarded a step gradual on each play and, fairly frankly, Mike Tomlin’s teaching efficiency was a joke. Going into the season I thought the Steelers had been undervalued. The hype across the Browns and Ravens gave the impression to be untimely and I thought the crew everybody was sleeping on within the division was the Pittsburgh Steelers. Do I nonetheless really feel that means after week 1? I’m undecided.

On the opposite aspect of the sector Sunday is the Seattle Seahawks, who narrowly escaped with a victory in week 1. Nonetheless, it was removed from spectacular. They performed one of many worst groups in NFL soccer within the Cincinnati Bengals, at house, and beat them by a level. It was not significantly better of a efficiency than the Steelers final week to be trustworthy. Russell Wilson threw for lower than 200 yards however did have two touchdowns, nevertheless it was an anemic operating sport that has me involved. Chris Carson ran for under 46 yards on the bottom and a efficiency like that, on the street in Pittsburgh, won’t get the job finished.
I’m not going to say that this can be a must-win for the Steelers after one week of soccer however the odds drop significantly to make the playoffs when a crew begins the yr 0-2. Mike Tomlin is aware of this, Massive Ben and the boys know this, and that’s why we should always see an impressed effort on the sector Sunday. As early as it could be, the season might already rely upon it. Give me the Steelers.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins
Leg two: Dallas Cowboys ML (-245)
Final week, the Dallas Cowboys regarded like a crew that may contend for an NFC championship. Granted they performed the god terrible New York Giants, so let’s not get the champagne out simply but. Nonetheless, the Cowboys regarded phenomenal.
Quarterback Dak Prescott performed higher final week then at any level final season. Despite the contract battle behind Zeke Elliott — and with out taking part in in a preseason sport — he regarded nice. Why? As a result of the Dallas Cowboys have the most effective offensive line in soccer full cease. What stunned me probably the most was how good the defensive unit regarded. I can be sky excessive on this crew in the event that they carried out towards most some other crew moreover the Giants, however I nonetheless assume they beat the Redskins this week.

About these Washington Redskins. What a deflating option to begin the yr. They had been up 17-Zero nothing and shocked the world for about one quarter of soccer, after which the Redskins we’ve come to guess towards confirmed up in devastating trend.
Up 17-0, they’d go on to be out scored 32-10 within the remaining three quarters proving to all of us what we thought they had been — a dangerous soccer crew. Now they face a Cowboys crew that shall be in search of again to again division wins to begin the yr and I anticipate them to do exactly that.
The underside line is the Cowboys are higher all over the place. They’ve a greater offensive unit, they’ve a greater defensive unit and are available Sunday they need to ship their division rival limping house with an 0-2 document to begin the yr. Cowboys — e book It.
