There are a few teams that are disappointing, and the Steelers have not shown the same form that got them to the Super Bowl last season.

In Week 8, there are a few teams that need to win to keep themselves on track and make a statement to the NFL that they are back on top form.

Here are three teams that will do that this weekend.


Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had to battle through many bad injuries on the offensive side of the ball.

With all the knocks, they have still found ways to win, even if it is not in good fashion.

The Steelers defense will have to be in top form on Sunday when they face Tom Brady.

Brady will find ways to pass into the depth of even the best secondary, and in this case, that is the Steelers. The Steelers will have to find a way to push back.


Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are a team full of potential going into every season.

The Cowboys would have had more wins if Tony Romo did not play his Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde act in the fourth quarter.

Tony Romo needs to stay true to his game plan and not sling the ball. When pressure comes in, do not force the ball, instead, simply move out of the pocket and find another option.

Romo is a great quarterback when it comes to rolling out of the pocket. This is why he needs to rely on his instincts and not try to be a hero.


New York Giants

One week, the Giants play like one of the worst teams in the NFL, and then they look like world-beaters the next.

Who will show up this weekend against Miami? If they play like they did against Seattle, they might hand Miami their first win.

This will not be the case, though, because they seem to be meshing together, and they are getting one of their best defensive weapons back in the form of Justin Tuck.
