Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Tonight, the Ravens travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. The Steelers, having home-field advantage, also have the edge in this game. I think Big Ben will find Mike Wallace open downfield for multiple big gains. That would open up holes for Mendenhall and Redman. On the other side, I don’t think Joe Flacco (overrated) will be able to pass the ball against the Steel Curtain tonight. Football fans should rename the defense the “Steel Wall”, because they’re much stronger than a curtain. Also, Flacco really doesn’t have any receivers to throw to besides Boldin and Smith. He’ll probably look for Ray Rice or Ricky Williams on flare routes. Ultimately, I think the Steelers’ offense will be too much for Baltimore to handle.
Prediction: Steelers OVER Ravens
Chicago Bears @ Philadelphia Eagles
I have to go with the Eagles in this one after their rout of Dallas last week. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Jeremy Maclin will be too hard for Urlacher and the Bears to contain. Notice how I didn’t mention DeSean? It’s because he hasn’t performed this season. Maclin is seen as a more consistent receiver. Also, you don’t know what you’re gonna get with Jay Culter. He can be John Elway, or he can be JaMarcus Russell. We all know Forte is a beast, but he’s the only sure think for that offense.
Prediction: Eagles OVER Bears
Till next time,
