Here We Go!

I’ve had this game circled since the schedule came out and now it’s time to get down to business. The Patsies are going down this weekend. Anthony Smith was right to guarantee a victory. As he stated, if the Steelers execute as they are capable of, they will win this game. The keys are to control the clock, minimize turnovers, and play physical. Simple enough… This is Steeler football.

The Steelers could easily be 10-2, 11-1, or even 12-0 coming into this game, but they did not play at their capable levels in losses to 3 poor teams. While this game will not define Tomlin’s success this year, it could establish him as master game planner. A win on Sunday will also give the Steelers a big boost heading into the playoffs with the potential of a #2 seed.

My prediction is Steelers 27 Patsy’rots 20. The Steelers play a physical game and rattle the Patsies. The Patsies have not faced a team yet like the Steelers, who have balance on both sides of the ball. The Colts (injuries) and Cowboys (defense in flux) both had their issues at the time.

Lets go Steelers!!!
