These teams do not play boring games, especially if last season has anything to say about it.
One thing you can say about the Steelers, and it almost sounds faux pas is they have speed on the outside. Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown can fly. Then, there is Mr. Consistency, Hines Ward. Throw in Heath Miller at the tight end position and Rashard Mendenhall at the back, and this might be the most potent offense in the NFL. Can they cover opposing wide receivers when spread out? That will be the test this season.
Baltimore made one move on the cheap, and I happen to think it was one of the best moves of the offseason: Lee Evans for a fourth-round pick. Evans isn't just a deep threat, he's a solid and proven pass catcher that will give this offense a dimension that old man Derrick Mason could not. The defense is aging and is far from solid in pass coverage. I'm interested in seeing what former first rounder, Sergio Kindle, can bring to the table.
Prediction: There will be points, but as always, this comes down to which team's defense makes the biggest stop or play at the biggest moment. My pick: Troy Polamalu does something incredible and preserves a win. Steelers leave Maryland with the win, 28-24.
