The Pittsburgh Steelers open up their 2010 season at Heinz Field this Sunday against an up and coming Atlanta Falcons team.
The Falcons have a potentially potent offense with Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White, and Tony Gonzalez as well as a talented defense which features players such as John Abraham, Mike Peterson, and Dunta Robinson.
It is also a team that is hungry for a return trip to the playoffs.
Pittsburgh will face a challenge within their own roster as they will start Dennis Dixon.
Dixon, who earned the starting job after Ben Roethlisberger was suspended and Byron Leftwich injured, will only be making his second-career start.
While he is inexperienced, Dixon has a ton of talent and will be one of the keys if the Steelers want to win this Sunday.
