The Steelers got back on track in their home opener, blanking the disastrous Seahawks. Meanwhile the AFC North featured the league’s desired parity when everyone finsished 1-1. Yes, that means the mighty Ravens were defeated by the Titans. Perhaps those dirty birds flew a little too high after their week 1 victory? Maybe they can’t get it up for any team not wearing the black and gold.
Against the Colts the Steelers should be able to impose their will on both sides of the ball without revealing too much to the Patriots brain trust. Pass enough to keep that eighth man out of the box and run it down their undersized defense’s collective throats.
