Detroit -1 @ Pittsburgh — O/U 47

Matt Stafford has been performing at an elite level over the past month, throwing for 1300+ yards and 11 touchdowns. The Steelers have been dreadful against the run (26th), but are still susceptible to blown assignments in coverage. Reggie Bush and Joicque Bell have been lethal receivers out of the backfield. Pittsburgh lacks game busters offensively if “Big Ben” is contained within the pocket; it’s when he buys time with the scramble drill that their chunk gains appear.Controlled pressure up front will decide the outcome.

Prediction: 24-21 Detroit

    Same reasoning as Thursday night. Better QB equals win…

    The 49ers need this game to be a slobber knocker. If the Saints score over 23 they win. I guess it depends on what you like better? The Saints O, or the 49ers D, the 49ers need it more!

  • Daniel Laxen

    I’ll agree!

    Baltimore is better @ home. Flacco has struggled, but they still win at home.

    A wise man told me once. “Don’t bet good money on a bad football team.” There are 2 of those here. Everything points to an avalanche of points, so I’ll play the under…Eagles vs. Skins.

    • Adam Ganeles

      Bad defenses, with playmakers on O. That’s all it takes in the NFCE

    Talk of QB trade in Pittsburgh? Detroit is an offense that is capable of many points. I don’t see the Steelers stopping CJ, if he plays? Detroit’s defense leaves plenty to be desired too. Over 47 easy!
