Point Spread: -3.50 | -109.00 Pittsburgh (Away)
Big Ben is back and there's big expectations for the Steelers coming into this year.
New York should be improved as well this season, but I think that the Giants' defense is going to struggle to keep up with Pittsburgh today.
And that's because NY's defense has taken a hit the last few weeks, with major injuries to two starters:
Linebacker David Mayo has a torn meniscus which will require surgery (he started 13 games and finished with 143 tackles.)
And already dealing with a very thin secondary, a broken foot for rookie safety Xavier McKinney is not what the doctor ordered for the home side to open up the new season.
With a chip on his shoulder, look for Roethlisberger to have a big night vs. this patchwork Giants' defensive unit.
The play is PITTSBURGH!
Good luck, NP
