Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots: The defending champs are playing at home and will be led by their future 1st ballot Hall Of Fame quarterback.  Tom Brady has to be ticked at an off-season of deflategate.  He will take out his frustrations on a Pittsburgh defense that is shaky and in transition.  The Steelers are also missing Martavis Bryant, Leveon Bell and Maurkice Pouncey.  The Pats are not as good in the secondary, but still have a tough front seven, Gronk, Brady, Belichick, Edelman and a solid offensive line.  Patriots 34- Steelers 23


Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams: Seattle has two new starters on the offensive line and have not had enough time to jell as a unit.  This new o-line opens on the road against one of the best front fours in the NFL.  The Rams contain Marshawn Lynch and hound Russell Wilson all game.  Plus, the vaunted Seattle secondary is not at full strength due to injury recuperation (Earl Thomas), a disgruntled player (Kam Chancellor with his contract) and is breaking in a new member (Cary Williams for Byron Maxwell).  St. Louis upsets Seattle in a tight game.  Rams 17- Seahawks 13


New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys: The Giants are vulnerable in the secondary and have a questionable front four missing their top pass rusher (JPP).  That does not bode well facing a Dallas offense loaded with talented skill position players supported by probably the best offensive line in football.  Dallas should score a lot of points against Big Blue and force them into catch-up mode.  The Cowboys improved pass rush can then get after Eli Manning and force a turnover or two.  Cowboys 41- Giants 23
