The Steelers might be free of the Antonio Brown drama in the locker room, but his absence was clearly evident on the field tonight against New England. Pittsburgh simply doesn't have anyone on offense right now who keeps coordinators up at night. Ju-Ju is a good player, but he isn't going to draw double teams like Brown did. The trickle-down effect isn't there anymore, as demonstrated by the rest of the Steeler receivers struggling to get open all night

 

I'd never count out the Steelers, and particularly not after one game, but couple their offensive woes with a defense which struggled to get any pressure on Brady and you have a team with more questions than answers at this point.

The NFC is so loaded.

 

Minnesota, GB, Chicago, Philly, Dallas, LAR and NO could all go to the SB and teams like Carolina, Atlanta, SF an Seattle could all become contenders as well.

 

A lot of people are hating on Houston because of how poorly managed they have been but I think they could be the best team in that division.  The defense is going to be good.  Hopkins is the best WR in the sport.  Watson is going to be a beast and their running game has some good potential as well.  

 

Impressed with Tennessee yesterday.  Always seem to be that underestimated team that just wins and puts themselves in position to make the playoffs.  

 

If we learned anything yesterday, we learned that NE is basically guaranteed a bye again.  That division is still total shit.  Credit to them for what they have accomplished but they get the easiest division every year.

 

All the talk is how good that KC offense is.  But Minshew, a 6th round pick, tore up their defense.  No one is talking about that.  How much better will that defense be this year?

Hopkins secures that one... caps a long drive with a TD...  16 play drive. 

 

14-3, 1:47 left.

Watson being evaluated.  Crashed hard on their first TD.

Texans take over down 6 with 50 seconds left.... beautiful pass and catch to Hopkins for 38 yards, followed by a TD strike to Stills.  But they miss the XP!  

 

 

Saved by roughing the kicker!

Wild end to that one!

 

Now onto the most boring game with the boring QB to wrap up the week.

Joe is making some nice tight window throws.

Looks comfortable out there but it’s really weird to see him in that uni.

Weird seeing Joe in another uniform.

Have only seen this drive, but has made several nice throws. I hope he has a big year and leads to many more years in his career. But not quite so many that he's ever considered a Raven slash something else.
