BetAnySports Free NFL Week 4 Pick- Bills at Packers

Green Bay Packers

Bills Have Momentum as They Face Packers

The Green Bay Packers and the Buffalo Bills have an intriguing matchup in NFL Week 4 Action. The Bills stay on the road this Sunday in a second-straight matchup against the NFC North. They a trip to Lambeau Field to face the Packers in a 1 p.m. start on CBS.

BetAnySports has opened the Packers as 10-point favorites with the total set at 44.5 points. The Packers are now 9.5-point favorites. The total is not at 44.

Bills Need to Play Consistent Against Packers

Buffalo was the top betting story in the NFL this past Sunday. They had a stunning 27-6 upset on the road against Minnesota as a heavy 16.5-point underdog.

This followed two lopsided loss to Baltimore on road and the Los Angeles Chargers at home in its first two games. The Bills are 1-2 both straight-up and against the spread. The total has gone OVER in two of the three games at BetAnySports.

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen ended the game against the Vikings with 196 yards passing and one touchdown throw. He completed 15 of his 22 passing attempts. Chris Ivory caught three passes for 70 yards while also leading the Bills in rushing with 56 yards on 20 carries.

You can also credit Buffalo’s defense for the upset with an interception and two fumble recoveries.

Packers Have Not Met Expectations

Green Bay has also failed to meet expectations as one of the top teams in the NFC North. They are at 1-1-1 SU and 1-2 ATS.

The Packers needed a 28-point fourth quarter rally to get past Chicago in Week 1. They were seven-point home favorites. They had to settle for a 29-29 tie against Minnesota as slight 1.5-point underdogs at home.

This past Sunday they were on the wrong end of a 31-17 loss to Washington. Linesmakers had them as 2.5-point road favorites. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing line in all three games.

Aaron Rodgers has completed 66.4 percent of his first 116 passing attempts. That has totaled 832 yards and six touchdowns against zero interceptions. His mobility has been hampered by a knee injury he sustained against the Bears.

The rushing offense has also been an issue with an average of 89 yards per game, which is ranked 24th in the league.

Green Bay’s defense falls to 23rd in the NFL in average points allowed (27.7).

The Bills have a ton of momentum on their side coming into Sunday’s game against the Packers. This is a team that has stumbled out of the gate in its first three games.

That being said, I am still going to lay the 9.5 points and take Green Bay ATS at home. Lambeau is a place where it is still hard to get a win for even the best teams in the league.

Football Betting - NFL Week 4 Games to Watch

NFL Week 4

By: The Frisco Kid

NFL Week 4 is When Teams Start to Separate Themselves

The NFL Week 4 slate kicked off with a very entertaining game in La La Land. We saw 48 first half points, leading to a 38-31 victory for the LA Rams over the Minnesota Vikings.

This one went well OVER the total of 49. The total went UNDER in the second half with the 2nd half total being set at 26.5. Only 21 points scored. I recently wrote an article about 2nd half total trends. If it stays true, it could be gold Jerry, gold!

Here are a few games to watch coming into Sunday’s action in Week 4.

Dolphins @ Patriots | Sept. 30th, 2018, 1:00PM ET | Pats -6.5 | Total 48.5

Who would have thought at the beginning of the year that the Dolphins would be the undefeated team coming into this one? Regardless of what we expected, the truth is the Dolphins are 3-0. They have wins over the Titans, Jets and Raiders. The Fins are also 3-0 ATS.

After starting the season with a win at home against the Texans, the Patriots have now lost back-to-back road games. They lost to Jacksonville and Detroit by double-digits. Not even Tom Terrific can inject life into this anemic offense.

Help is on the way with Justin Edelman returning from suspension in Week 5. Josh Norman getting up to speed on the offense.

New England was a 7.5-point road favorite in Detroit and a 1-point favorite in Jacksonville. That puts their SU and ATS records at 1-2. I just spoke on the Pats offense. They are 25th in total offense, but their troubles don’t end there.

They are 26th in total defense, giving up the 22nd most passing yards per game (263). The squad is an astounding 31st in rushing yards allowed per game (143.3). Miami is 23rd in total offense and 19th in total defense.

Bengals @ Falcons | Sept. 30th, 2018, 1:00PM ET | Falcons -3.5 | Total 53.5

I predict fireworks in this one. Although only one game has a total higher than this one (KC at DEN 54.5), reaching the OVER is very achievable. The Bengals scored 34 points in their first two games. They were held to 21 last week against a tough Panthers defense.

Andy Dalton did throw for 352 yards last week, but he only completed 63% of his passes. He also threw FOUR interceptions.

The Falcons forgot to get ready for their season opener in Philly, and looked flat from the get go. They scored only 12 points that night. They have since scored 31 vs. the Panthers in Week 2 and 37 in an overtime thriller with the Saints in Week 3.

This game features a couple of the best wide receivers in the game with Julio Jones and A.J. Green. We also will see a couple of the best up and coming stars at the same position. Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd.

The Falcons rookie wide receiver has taken the football world by storm. Ridley broke out last week for 146 yards and 3 TDs after getting the first TD and reception of his career in Week 2.

Third year WR Tyler Boyd has already equaled his 2017 production heading into Week 4. After going for 91 yards and a TD on 9 catches in Week 2, last week he went off for 132 yards and another TD.

With Green good to go, watch for the depleted Falcon defense to have trouble stopping the Bengals duo. Although the same can be said for Atlanta’s Alabama wide outs.

Eagles @ Titans | Sept. 30th, 2018, 1:00PM ET | Titans +3.5 | Total 41

Expect NFL Week 4 to show some real life drama. It is maybe one of the best reality TV shows there has ever been, and ever will be. It’s a roller coaster ride. Last week, the Titans beat a Jaguars team that had just beaten the Patriots.

The Titans managed only 83 yards through the air and 150 more on the ground, en route to a 9-6 win.

Early Line Over Reactions for NFL Week 4

The Eagles got Cap’n Wentz back last week. Although it was not easy, the Eagles went to 2-1 after a 20-16 victory over the Colts. I wrote an article last week, titled “NFL Futures | Super Bowl Winner | Week 3”. I stated:

“Only two short weeks ago the Eagles were a top most power rankings. Getting $1150 on a $100 bet on the Eagles to repeat as Super Bowl champs is perhaps giving the best value of any team on the board.”

While I still believe that statement about value to be true, it is the power rankings part I want to focus on. If you have read my stuff before, you know I handicap my own games prior to looking at any offshore or Vegas odds.

I use a six-category system. I weigh different phases of the game against the other. For purposes of this article, because my opinion means jack-squat, here are the Power Rankings from 3 popular sites for the Titans and Eagles.

Top 3 Google hits for NFL Power Rankings                               Eagles #3                               Titans #19                            Eagles #3                               Titans #20    Eagles #3                               Titans #5 (up 15 spots from last week)

Those three sets of Power Rankings average out to be Eagles #3 and Titans #14. I do not know the ins and outs of how they come up with these. I would suspect it’s similar to mine and encompass a wide array of information.

What is a Pay Per Head | What do they offer | How does it Work?

The Point being going into NFL Week 4 action is this. Is 3.5-points enough separating that large of a gap in the power rankings? Did the 9-6 victory over the Jags give the Titans that much of a boost?

I don’t think so. There looks to be a lot of money on the Eagles moneyline. expect the spread to get closer to 5 as game-time approaches.

These are three games I will be watching as Sunday in NFL Week 4 action.

Will the Pats get on track or will the Dolphins take a commanding lead in the AFC East? You best get your popcorn ready for Cincy & the Falcons. and Get on the Eagles now before that lines moves out of your favor. Good luck and see you back here next week.

No. 7 Stanford vs. No. 8 Notre Dame College Football Preview and Pick

Notre Dame Athletics

No. 7 Stanford vs. No. 8 Notre Dame College Football Preview

Two ranked opponents collide in South Bend, Indiana on Saturday when the Stanford Cardinal visit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Saturday, September 29 at 7:30 PM ET

Notre Dame Stadium

Odds: Notre Dame is a 4-point favorite. The total is 52.5.

Odds and News

Stanford Cardinal

Stanford escaped with a 38-31 come-from-behind overtime win against Oregon last Saturday night. The Cardinal trailed 24-7 in the third quarter and the Ducks were on the one-yard line. They were about to make the game 31-7.

Two fumbles, with the second one being returned 80 yards for a score, changed the course of the game.

K.J. Costello completed 19 of 26 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns. He will be a player to watch in this contest because Notre Dame has been below average defending the pass so far.

The Cardinal are averaging 264.0 passing yards (47th in the nation) and 104.3 rushing yards (120th). Stanford ranks 77th with 29.0 points per game and 10th with 13.5 points against.

K.J. Costello has passed for 1056 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. Bryce Love has 254 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 59 carries. JJ Arcega-Whiteside has 17 receptions for 408 yards and seven touchdowns.


Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Notre Dame has a solid ground game and a strong receiving corps. Quarterback Brandon Wimbush struggled early on, so they decided to give a chance to his backup Ian Book. On the road against Wake Forest Book led the Fighting Irish to a 56-27 win.

The Notre Dame offense finally looked great. Book earned himself another start over Wimbush after completing 25 of 34 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 43 yards and three touchdowns.

The Fighting Irish finished with 241 rushing yards, led by Jafar Armstrong's 98 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries.

The Fighting Irish are averaging 231.8 passing yards (71st in the nation) and 183.8 rushing yards (60th). Notre Dame ranks 64th with 31.5 points per game and 33rd with 19.3 points against.

Ian Book has passed for 338 yards and three touchdowns. Tony Jones Jr. has 263 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 46 carries. Miles Boykin has nine receptions for 167 yards.


Odds and News


College Football Trends:

The Under is:

38-16 in Stanford's last 54 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game

12-4 in Stanford's last 16 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game

9-2 in Stanford's last 11 games following a straight up win

8-3 in Stanford's last 11 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game

10-4 in Stanford's last 14 games overall

16-5 in Notre Dame's last 21 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game

7-1 in Notre Dame's last eight games overall

7-1 in Notre Dame's last eight non-conference games

4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Notre Dame

7-1 in the last eight meetings

The Notre Dame offense exploded against Wake Forest last week. I don't see them putting up many points on this Stanford defense. Stanford hasn't been solid on offense so far, especially their running game, so they'll look to establish the run, which will eat the clock.

Miami Hurricanes

Miami Hurricanes Host UNC on Short Week

The North Carolina Tar Heels and the Miami-FL Hurricanes meet Thursday Night College Football on ESPN. They battle at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami with the kickoff set for this ACC clash set for 8 pm EST.

Oddsmakers have set Miami as a 17.5-point favorite. The total is now at 56.

It's a short week for North Carolina and Miami. Both teams are coming off victories. The Hurricanes moved up to No. 16 after their 31-17 triumph over Florida International. The Tar Heels earned their first victory of the season. They outlasted Pitt 38-35 in the school's ACC and home opener.

Miami has a QB Controversy

The question of the week in Miami is who will open at quarterback. Redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry replaced embattled senior Malik Rosier Saturday for the third series in a planned move. Rosier was last year's starter who got off to a rocky beginning this season.

He never got back in and Perry went on to hit 17 of 25 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns. It was his first extended action to spark a Hurricanes offense that has been inconsistent with Rosier at the helm.

The Miami Hurricanes are 3-1 on the season. Tonight is their first ACC contest. Rosier has had his moments as the Hurricanes' starter since the start of the 2017 season. He is completing just 52.1 percent of his passes this year and 54 percent last year.

Perry is showing far greater accuracy at 66.7 percent.This is a big reason why a switch to the younger, more dynamic Perry appears imminent.

Freshman tight end Brevin Jordan is becoming a more integral part of the attack. He is tied for second on the team in receptions with 12. He also has  three touchdowns and 11 of his catches coming with Perry at quarterback.

The Tar Heels' ground game will be challenged by a Miami run defense giving up just 78.8 yards per game. That is fourth best in the nation. Gerald Willis III tied for tops in the country in tackles for loss (10) and Jonathan Garvin ranked sixth (8.5).

The Tar Heels Have a QB Controversy of Their Own

The Tar Heels may have a quarterback quandary of their own. Sophomore Chazz Surratt is one of seven players returning from a three-game suspension.

Head coach Larry Fedora indicated that junior Nathan Elliott will get the nod after his impressive 313-yard, two-touchdown outing against Pittsburgh.

UNC is 1-2 overall to start the season. They are 1-0 in ACC action. Surratt led the Tar Heels with 1,342 yards passing and 13 touchdowns (eight passing, five rushing) in nine games last season (seven starts).

His return will give Fedora a solid option should Elliott struggle as he did the first two weeks. The offensive line has surrendered just one sack in three games. The unit owned the line of scrimmage against Pittsburgh.

It also played a major role in the success of Elliott and a ground attack that pounded out a season-high 173 yards, led by Antonio Williams' 114 yards and two touchdowns.

Last season, North Carolina out-gained Miami 428-415 in a 24-19 loss. Surratt was injured in the first quarter and Elliott came in and threw three interceptions against the Canes' opportunistic defense.

Braves vs. Mets MLB Betting Preview and Pick

Braves Baseball

Jacob deGrom in his last start of the season against Braves

The New York Mets host the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday. Jacob deGrom has one last chance to improve his National League Cy Young resume. He would be a lock for the award if the Mets offense hadn't betrayed him much of the year.

Wednesday, September 26 at 7:10 PM ET

Citi Field

Mostly Cloudy 73°F

Wind: 5mph


Odds: Mets -163-moneyline favorites. The total is at 7 Under -125.

Odds and News

Braves Newcomb falls to the Nationals

Sean Newcomb (12-9, 4.04 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) allowed five earned runs on six hits (two home runs) in his last outing. He also allowed two walks with three strikeouts over just three innings in a 6-4 loss against the Nationals on September 16.

Newcomb is struggling, going 1-2 with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in his last three starts. The start will decide whether or not he is in the Braves postseason rotation.

The Braves have scored 747 runs (8th in the majors). They are putting up 4.76 runs per game (7th), hitting .258 (3rd) with 174 home runs (18th).

Atlanta ranks 9th with a 3.77 ERA, 14th with a 1.29 WHIP and 11th with 1365 strikeouts. Their bullpen ranks 16th with a 4.09 ERA.

Ronald Acuna Jr. leads the Braves with 26 home runs and is fifth on the team with 60 RBI. Freddie Freeman has team-bests with a .310 batting average, 95 RBI, a .388 OBP and 187 hits. He is third on the team with 23 home runs. Ozzie Albies has 24 home runs and 72 RBI.

deGrom dominates Washington

Jacob deGrom (9-9, 1.77 ERA, 0.94 WHIP) gave up one earned run on three hits in his last outing. He also allowed a walk with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a 4-2 win against the Nationals last Friday.

deGrom has built a solid case for the Cy Young award. He is leading the National League with a 1.77 ERA and ranking second with 209 innings pitched. The fireballer has 259 strikeouts and an 0.94 WHIP.

deGrom has a minuscule 1.62 ERA and an 0.84 WHIP with a complete game in his last seven starts.

The Mets have scored 666 runs (21st in the majors). They are putting up 4.24 runs per game (21st), hitting .236 (28th) with 166 home runs (21st).

New York ranks 19th with a 4.18 ERA, 12th with a 1.28 WHIP and 8th with 1398 strikeouts. Their bullpen ranks 29th with a 5.03 ERA.

Michael Conforto leads the Mets with 27 home runs and 81 RBI. Todd Frazier has 18 home runs and 58 RBI. Brandon Nimmo has 17 home runs, 47 RBI and a team-best .399 OBP.

Odds and News

MLB Trends:

The Atlanta Braves are:

Braves are 1-5 in Newcomb's last six starts during game 2 of a series

1-4 in Newcomb's last five starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game

Braves are 1-4 in Newcomb's last five Wednesday starts

1-8 in their last nine games with CB Bucknor behind home plate

The New York Mets are:

16-5 in their last 21 games following a loss

6-1 in their last seven Wednesday games

Mets are 5-2 in their last seven games when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game

5-2 in their last seven games against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30

5-2 in their last seven home games

Jacob deGrom has been dominant at home this season. He has posted a 1.66 ERA and an 0.89 WHIP in 15 starts at Citi Field. Although Sean Newcomb pitches better on the road than at home, the Mets have been decent on offense lately. They have a big edge on the mound with deGrom.

Thursday Night Football: Vikings vs. Rams Preview and Pick

Los Angeles Rams

Rams Look to Stay Undefeated Against Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings collide with the Los Angeles Rams in a must-watch Thursday Night Football game. These are two of the best teams in the NFC. It should be explosive and fun to watch.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Los Angeles Rams Thursday Night Football Betting Preview

Thursday, September 27 at 8:15 PM ET

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

Odds: The Rams are 6.5-point favorites. The total is at 49.


Odds and News

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings  are just 1-1-1 in the early going.  They are 1.5 games behind the Bears in the NFC North. They look to getting back on track from last Sunday's tough 27-6 home loss against the Bills. It won't be easy, especially against a Rams team that's playing very well.

After falling behind 17-0 in the first quarter against the Bills, the Vikings decided to abandon the run. They put the entire offense on Kirk Cousins' shoulders. Cousins completed 40 of 55 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

He did fumble the ball three times, losing two of them. Minnesota had just 14 rushing yards on six carries. Early turnovers and a one-dimensional offense hurt them. If Minnesota wants to win this game, Kirk Cousins has to protect the ball better and avoid mistakes.

The Vikings are averaging 305.7 passing yards, which is 4th in the NFL. Their 66.0 rushing yards, puts them 31st. Minnesota ranks 22nd with 19.7 points per game and 17th with 24.0 points against.

Kirk Cousins has passed for 965 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions. Dalvin Cook has 78 rushing yards on 26 carries. Adam Thielen has 32 receptions for 338 yards and one touchdown. Harrison Smith has 20 tackles, two sacks and one interception. Danielle Hunter has three sacks.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams have looked well in their 3-0 start. BUT they haven't faced tough competition yet and the Vikings will be their biggest test so far.

Jared Goff had his best game of the season in Sunday's 35-23 win against the Chargers. He completed 29 of 36 passes for 354 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

Todd Gurley II also shined, rushing for 105 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries while catching five passes for 51 yards.

Los Angeles has a balanced offense so they will have no problem putting points on the board. Their defense needs to apply as much pressure as possible on Kirk Cousins. If they can keep Minnesota's offense in check they will have a great shot to win this game.

The Rams are averaging 305.7 passing yards (4th in the NFL) and 133.7 rushing yards (6th). Los Angeles ranks 4th with 34.0 points per game and 1st with 12.0 points against.

Jared Goff has passed for 941 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. Todd Gurley II has 255 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 62 carries. Brandin Cooks has 19 catches for 336 receiving yards.

Cory Littleton has 26 tackles and one interception and Michael Brockers has nine tackles and one sack.

Odds and News

NFL Trends:

The Minnesota Vikings are:

4-9 ATS in their last 13 games on grass

2-6 ATS in their last eight road games against a team with a winning home record

1-4 ATS in their last five games against NFC opponents

0-4 ATS against a team with a winning record

The Los Angeles Rams are:

4-1 ATS in their last five games in Week 4

4-1 ATS in their last five games against teams with a losing record

6-2 ATS in their last eight games in September

5-2 ATS in their last seven games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game

The favorite is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The Rams are a perfect 3-0 ATS so far and their talented offense that ranks fourth in the league. They will be going up against a Vikings defense that has allowed 56 points in the last two games.

Minnesota hasn't been able to run the ball consistently or take good care of it so I'll lay the points with Los Angeles.

NFL Pick: Rams -6.5 (-110) at Jazz Sports

Cardinals Host Brewers in Playoff Important Series

St. Louis Cardinals Baseball

Brewers Magic Number is 3 Over Cardinals

The Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals will meet this Tuesday at Busch Stadium for the first of three important games. Only six games remain in the regular season. Both teams find themselves in a dual with the Colorado Rockies for NL Wildcard positions.

Just two games separate the Brewers and Cards. The Rockies trail by 1.5 games for the final Wildcard spot. Wins will be critical if both clubs hope to maintain playoff positions late in the season.

The Brewers can take a huge step toward clinching a wild-card berth on Tuesday.  Milwaukee lowered its magic number to clinch a postseason spot to three following Monday's 6-4 victory over St. Louis. They also remain within striking distance of winning the National League Central

PITCHING MATCHUP: Brewers LH Gio Gonzalez (9-11, 4.28 ERA) vs. Cardinals LH Austin Gomber (6-1, 3.63)

Odds: The Cardinals are -114-moneyline favorites. The total is 8.5 Under -125.

Brewers Go With Lefty to Try to Contain Cardinals

Milwaukee will send recent acquisition Gio Gonzalez to the mound to face St. Louis. The veteran lefty is 2-0 with a 1.65 ERA in three starts since being acquired at the August 31 trade. He came over from the Washington Nationals.

Games like Tuesday’s are why the Brewers traded for Gonzalez. and They’ll lean on him heavily against the Cards’ eighth-best offense.

The Brewers reached the 90-win mark in the opener for only the eighth time in the franchise's 50-year history.

Cards are in Must Win Territory

The Cardinals (87-70) appeared to be on their way to closing the gap on the Brewers in the opener. After roughing up All-Star reliever Josh Hader and taking a 4-3 lead in the sixth inning they fell apart.

Two late RBI's from Christian Yelich and a wild pickoff throw in the eighth inning led to the end of St. Louis' three-game winning streak. The loss made the Cardinals' bid to overtake the Brewers this week unlikely. It also reduced their lead over Colorado to a half-game for the final wild card.

Austin Gomber rebounded from his worst performance as a major leaguer to move to 5-1 as a member of the rotation. He permitted one run while fanning five over as many innings last Tuesday against Atlanta.

The Florida Atlantic product continues to struggle with his control. He has handed out 31 free passes over his first 69 1/3 big-league innings. Gomber did not give up a run in two-thirds of an inning in his only appearance versus Milwaukee on June 23. i

He iss allowing left-handed hitters to bat .301 against him. The reliever converted starter has an impressive 6-1 record to go along with a 3.63 ERA

Yadier Molina (8-for-23) has fared well while Matt Carpenter (2-for-19) has not versus Gonzalez, who was tagged for five runs across four frames in a loss at St. Louis on Aug. 14.

Monday Night Football: Buccaneers Host the Steelers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Buccaneers Host the Winless Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet on Monday Night Football to end Week 3 of the NFL Season. Raymond James Stadium will host the primetime affair. Kickoff is set for 8:15 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Steelers as -2.5-point favorites versus the Buccaneers, while the game's total opened at 49.5. The line is now Tampa Bay as a 1.5-point favorite. The total is up to 54.5.

It has hardly been a smooth start for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They have yet to crack the win column, and have a fractured clubhouse to boot.The team has been embroiled in controversy swirling around the team's top offensive playmakers.

The Steelers will face a red-hot quarterback for the second time in as many weeks. Ryan Fitzpatrick is as hot as they come. Last week they faced Patrick Mahomes who had a field day.

Star running back Le'Veon Bell continues to be a holdout for Pittsburgh. THEN All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown caused a stir for being a no-show one day after last week's 42-37 home loss to Kansas City.

Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is the first player to open the season with consecutive 400-yard, four-touchdown performances.

The Steelers Have to Fix the Defense

The Steelers are 0-1-1 to start the season. Despite the absence of Bell and Brown's brief walkout, Pittsburgh's biggest issues are on the other side of the ball.The defense is a far cry from a "Steel Curtain".

The Steelers failed to protect a 14-point, fourth-quarter lead en route to a tie at Cleveland in the season opener. Then they were carved up by Kansas City and quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He threw for 326 yards and six touchdowns in Sunday's shootout.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger rebounded from a five-turnover debacle in Week 1.  He did this by throwing for 452 yards and three scores last weekend. JuJu Smith-Schuster hauled in 13 passes for 121 yards and a TD.

Running back James Conner was limited to 17 yards on eight carries last week. He rumbled for 135 and two touchdowns in Week 1.

Brown had nine catches in each of the first two contests this year. He has 70 receptions and seven TDs in his last eight games versus NFC foes.

Fitzpatrick is Playing Lights Out for Buccaneers

The Buccaneers are 2-0 on this young NFL season. Fitzpatrick was supposed to simply mind the store while starting quarterback Jameis Winston was serving a three-game suspension. All he has done is throw for eight touchdowns and a league-high 819 yards. The job is his - for now.

Mike Evans has been the favorite target of Fitzpatrick with 17 catches for 230 yards and two scores.

Tampa Bay's defense received a boost when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and cornerback Brent Grimes were full participants in Friday's practice.

Fitzpatrick is bidding to become the first QB in NFL history with at least 400 passing yards in three straight games.

PREDICTION: Steelers 30, Buccaneers 26
