Ben Roethlisberger and his Pittsburgh Steelers got off to a slow start this season. Many think it was because Roethlisberger didn’t like the new offense the Steelers put into place. Nonetheless the Steelers are only one game back of the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North at 4-3. The Steelers are going to need a lot of help from their defense this week to help stop the Giants Eli Manning to stay in touch with the Ravens who play the Cleveland Browns Sunday. The Steelers can get a win if the defense can put pressure on Eli Manning. That is the trick, trying to slow down the Giants offense has to start with stopping Manning.

Roethlisberger can get the job done if his defense can hold to top-notch Giants offense. Big Ben has shown the new offense works and it works well when his guys hold onto the football. The Steelers have seen a lot of dropped balls this season and Sunday when they take on the Giants, the defense is going to have to do their job and the Steelers receivers need to hang onto the football. I like Pittsburgh’s chance this Sunday. I think Big Ben and his Steelers could come away with a win over the New York Giants.
