3 REASON WHY THE STEELERS WILL WIN

1) Ben Roethlisberger Roethlisberger was only a shell of himself during his return last week against the Browns and was pretty darn good. Roethlisberger lit up the Miami secondary last year and could very well do the same this year.

2) James Harrison You better believe that James Harrison and Co. on the defensive side of the ball have a chip on their shoulder after what has transpired over the past week. That's not good for the Dolphins.

3) Special teams It was only a few weeks back that the Dolphins' special teams were torched by the Patriots so much so that the it got the special teams coach fired. The Steelers already have one kick return this season for a touchdown.

3 REASONS WHY THE STEELERS WILL LOSE

1) The wildcat Even though the Dolphins have gone away from the wildcat in recent weeks including not running it against the Packers last week. The offense can return to it at any time and it could be very difficult to slow down.

2) Cameron Wake The former Penn Stater spent time in the CFL, but has caught on quickly with the Dolphins. Wake has six sacks from his outside linebacker position and is on pace for 19, which would be a franchise record.

3) Brandon Marshall After a relatively slow start, Marshall has registered more than 100 yards with 10 catches in two of his past three games. Marshall was targeted 17 times against the Packers last week and also 17 in a Week 3 game.

The Steelers handle the wildcat and big threat receivers well. #2 should be the only worry.
