Week 9 Monday Night Madness: The Brooklyn Hillbilly Pick
Pittsburgh Steelers at Washington Redskins(-2.5, 38)
Sorry sports fans, BH had a very busy day in West Virginia saving the world for democracy, so the Monday night preview will be short and sweet.
This is rightly a nationally televised game, as its pitting two of the best in the league in one of the best places to watch a game. The Skins continue to impress, sorta. Ever since the inexplicable loss to the Rams, they have been flailing a bit, barely beating the Browns and the Lions in the last two weeks. Not impressive. But they are still dangerous. Any team with Santana Moss and Clinton Portis is.
I don't particularly feel like dwelling on the Steelers, their massive mistakes that cost the game last week or my sneaking feeling that this offense isn't equipped to play elite Ds. SO, Im going with my nephew Sam's prediction for the game: Ben throws 2 tds; Moore and Parker get 1td; the Steelers pick Campbell off twice; Portis breaks 100yds on the ground; and Pittsburgh wins 27-21.
