3 units on Pittsburgh PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Pittsburgh Steelers came within one game of another Super Bowl win, and will be in line to be right back their again this year. This is a team with a rock solid defense and a savvy QB that may not look pretty at times, but when there is a big throw to be made he makes it. Washington just appears to be running in place and things didn't look much different under the direction of Mike Shanahan. They have no one in camp that is inspiring thoughts of a QB that can lead the offense to wins instead of losses. The defense which looked good in 2009, took a giant step back a year ago. All-in-all, this is one of only two teams that did not win a game by 10+ points in the NFL a year ago. The Steelers won with their second string QB when Big Ben was suspended, and Washington doesn't even have a starter as Beck and Rossman fight it out, but neither is impressive. Take Pittsburgh here.
