It's finally here. After months of speculation and worry, The Pittsburgh Steelers will play their first game of the 2020 season.
It will look different without fans in the stands, but football is finally happening. That we are sure of. What we don't think will happen is the Steelers losing to the New York Giants
Previewing the opening match up Monday night, the Fan Morning Show says that the only way the Steelers lose if they beat themselves.
The Steelers have a better coaching staff, better personnel on the field and a better quarterback in a returning Ben Roethlisberger.
The only are the Giants have one over the Steelers is at running back with Saquon Barkley.
Colin Dunlap says it may not be pretty, but the Steelers should win.
"When they compete in this football game, if they simply go out and don't beat themselves and make errors, they win it," said Dunlap.
Dunlap added that Roethlisberger needs to go back to 2008-2009 Ben and be a game manager and not the gunslinger.
"Maybe it's okay to be game manager Ben for one day, to figure out if your elbow works then build after that."
"If the Steelers don't turn the ball over more than two times tonight, they win," said Chris Mack.
Without any preseason games to gauge, Mack wouldn't be surprised if Roethlisberger goes 9 for 15 or 39 for 50.
Mack and Dunlap agree that the Steelers need to go out an play it simple and don't need to do anything flashy in the first drive of the game.
Even if Barkley has a breakout game for the Giant, Dunlap doesn't believe that will be enough to stop the Steelers from winning.
He adds Barkely could run for over 100 yards (realistically he thinks it will be in the 80s) and it wouldn't be enough to win.
That being said, a Steelers lose would be considered "disastrous" because Pittsburgh is a much better football team and is up 6 points on the road.
