Pick Em: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots
Good news NFL fans: The regular season starts tonight!
What better way to kick the season off then a matchup between rivals as the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the New England Patriots!
Not too familiar with the teams? No problem! Below is a quick bit of info on the star players on each team. Hopefully it will help you choose who comes out on top tonight!
Pittsburgh was one of the most explosive teams in the NFL last year on offense. Antonio Brown was one of the most dynamic players in the league at wide out, as he led the league in receptions and yards.
Second year running back Leveon Bell emerged as a top five player at his position in 2014 as well. Losing 20 pounds in the off-season made him a quicker player, which allowed him to hit the hole with more explosion last year.
The Off-season was a nightmare for the Patriots, which is very surprising for a team that just won the Superbowl.
The good news for Pats fans is Brady won his appeal and won't miss anytime this year. The Pats have an explosive passing game that holds one of the best combos in Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski.
It will be hard for the Steelers to slow them down on offense for sure.
Despite the fact that Pittsburgh will be playing without star running back Leveon Bell, I see them stealing a victory in Foxboro.
While the Pats have a great offense, there defense holds alot of question marks, and the Steelers have one of the best vertical offenses in the league.
I think Antonio Brown will have a huge day and lead the Steelers to victory, but who do you think will come out on top my fellow Vinglers?
