Re: Just saw the line for Sunday - Steelers +12
The point is that a slow and old Ravens defense and a fairly average Eagles defense were able to slow the Patriots. The Pats defensive stats are all smoke and mirrors, since many of the shitty teams they blew out early were forced to become one-dimensional, and they lacked the talent to execute, which just made things worse.
The Steelers are capable of more. They can score on the Pats defense. They can play the kind of defense that will significantly slow that offense. If their ST hold, and they execute, I'd say the Pats are actually in trouble this week.
