Rashard Mendenhall and the Steelers host the New England Patriots on Sunday.
The Steelers and Patriots renew their bitter rivalry on Sunday with both teams looking to stake a claim as top dog in the AFC.
New England certainly didn’t look like potential conference champions last week, getting stomped by the Browns, and there’s little reason to believe they will do any better on Sunday Night Football. Pittsburgh receiver Mike Wallace is developing a good partnership with Ben Roethlisberger and I like the duo to devour the Patriots’ pitiful secondary. Bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers as 4½-point favorites and win big with Sports Interaction.
Big Blue welcomes Big D to New Meadowlands Stadium on Sunday when the Giants take on the Cowboys. Dallas dispensed with the services of Wade Phillips on Monday, with Jason Garrett taking over head coaching duties until the end of the season. Given Garrett’s role in Dallas’ troubles, it’s hard to see the team improving under his stewardship.
That’s bad news for Cowboys fans this Sunday because the Giants are currently playing like Super Bowl contenders. With Jon Kitna still under center for Dallas, I expect the Giants’ defense to have a big day in this NFC East battle. New York should win, and win big. Bet on the New York Giants as 14-point favorites with Sports Interaction.
The Vikings are clinging desperately to their playoff hopes. Minnesota would get a massive boost with a win in Chicago on Sunday. The Bears have raced to a 5-3 record but look fragile. Most of those wins have come against the NFL’s also-rans and injuries could become an issue soon. Chicago’s offensive line has allowed Jay Cutler, and his backup, Todd Collins, to get beaten up too often by opposing defenses. The Vikings haven’t scared many quarterbacks in 2010 but they will fancy their chances of giving Cutler a few licks.
This game will be physical and I like Minnesota to come out on top in an ugly battle that should have little in the way of good offense. Bet on the Minnesota Vikings as 1-point favorites and win big with Sports Interaction.
Monday Night Football gives Michael Vick and the Eagles a chance to build on last week’s huge win over the Colts. This week Philadelphia hit the road to take on the Redskins. Washington have proven to be one of the toughest teams to read in the NFL. At times they are tenacious while at others they appear to lack any sense of hunger.
The recent spat between Donovan McNabb and Mike Shanahan doesn’t inspire confidence. I like the Eagles to record a big road win on Monday. Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles as 3-point favorites with Sports Interaction.
