In NFL Week 1, we will see Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots.
The Pittsburgh Steelers lost both Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown during the summer and most people expect them to struggle in 2019. Ben Roethlisberger will have another favorite target this year in the face of JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Steelers improved their defense a bit, however, I believe that the offense will take a step down this year. If the Steelers find the right balance between the offense and the defense, I believe that they will be in for a great season.
The New England Patriots got younger and faster during the offseason. Tom Brady looks as good as he has ever been and he doesn’t show any symptoms of aging. Josh Gordon is back in the Patriots’ squad while Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thomas will be the other wide receiving threats. The defense managed to hold many high-powered offenses last year such as the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams.
We all know that the New England Patriots tend to start their regular seasons very slowly and they rarely win on week 1. I believe that this time they will turn things around because they will only have to be worried about JuJu Smith-Schuster and the running game.
