Who I like, Carolina version

The Steelers should get an early Christmas present in the form of the Carolina Panthers.

Everything about this game looks like a rout.

Carolina's pass offense is non-existent. The Panthers have just eight touchdown passes this season to go with 19 interceptions.

It gets even worse when you look at Jimmy Clausen's stats. In eight starts, Clausen has two TD passes and seven interceptions with eight fumbles. He's been sacked 26 times.

Pittsburgh's defense will control Carolina's rushing attack and force Clausen to throw, something that will lead to bad things, even without Troy Polamalu in the lineup.

Rashard Mendenhall should find some running lanes and the Steelers could spread the Panthers out early in an attempt to build a lead.
