I predict a win, but one marked by BA forgetting what worked last week. This one is ours to lose.
Us - 27
Them - 13

Leaders of the Free World - 48
The team from the worst football city in America - 0

Pittsburgh Steelers 31
Jaromir Jagoffs 13
We will dominate.

The Steelers D will throw all kinds of looks at the rookie and I expect another dominating performance from Ben and his Band of Brothers!!! This one should be as fun as last week!!

I admit it - if the Steelers do not dominate this week it wil be disappointing. The Jags are a dismal team. I also expect 2 defensive turnovers!

Who I like - Jacksonville version
Rookie quarterback faces defense looking to continue re-establishing itself as a force. This isn't a good spot for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Rashard Mendenhall will also be back and should be motivated after watching his backups have some success last week.
The Steelers are 13 1/2 point favorites in this one, which is a big spot.
But if they control Maurice Jones-Drew, they should be OK.
Take Pittsburgh, 27-10

Gerry Dulac's NFL Forecast: Week 6
Thursday, October 13, 2011
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Pigskin picks from the PG's gridiron guru ...
Jacksonville Jaguars (1-4) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: The Jaguars have lost four in a row. And, after spending $112 million in free agency, the next person to lose might be coach Jack Del Rio. The only good news: they have won three in a row at Heinz Field including in the 2007 playoffs.
Prediction: Steelers, 30-10
Indianapolis Colts (0-5) at Cincinnati Bengals (3-2), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: Yes, an AFC North team leads the NFL in defense, but it's not the Ravens or Steelers. It's the Bengals, who have won two in a row and are the only team to hold the Bills under 31 points (20).
Prediction: Bengals, 23-7
San Francisco 49ers (4-1) at Detroit Lions (5-0), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: If it weren't for the Lions, the 49ers would be the upstart in the NFC. They have won three in a row and are furthering the coaching legend of Jim Harbaugh. They are also unbeaten on the road (2-0). But, as I said ...
Prediction: Lions, 31-28
Buffalo Bills (4-1) at New York Giants (3-2), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: The Giants were surprised last week in Seattle. But they shouldn't be surprised at the Bills, not after the way Buffalo beat New England and Philadelphia. Or the way the Bills score points and take away the ball.
Prediction: Giants, 27-24
Carolina Panthers (1-4) at Atlanta Falcons (2-3), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: There might start to be consternation in Atlanta; not because the Falcons are 2-3, but because they are not that good. Cam Newton might be looking for another 400-yard game.
Prediction: Falcons, 30-23
Houston Texans (3-2) at Baltimore Ravens (3-1), 4:05 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: The Texans are without two of their biggest stars, WR Andre Johnson and LB Mario Williams. The Ravens are coming off their off week.
Prediction: Ravens, 27-14
St. Louis Rams (1-3) at Green Bay Packers (5-0), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: After starting the season with four consecutive losses, the Rams certainly needed an off week to rectify their problems. What they didn't need after a week off, though, was to face the Packers.
Prediction: Packers, 41-9
Philadelphia Eagles (1-4) at Washington Redskins (3-1), 1 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: Jim Haslett's defense in Washington has quickly developed into one of the best in the league. The Eagles defense has developed into one of the worst. Is it possible the Eagles could lose five in a row?
Prediction: Eagles, 23-20
Cleveland Browns (2-2) at Oakland Raiders (3-2), 4:05 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: The Browns have been pretty good after an off week, winning three of the past four. But the Raiders are sneaky good. The Black Hole should be even darker this week without Al Davis.
Prediction: Raiders, 30-21
Dallas Cowboys (2-2) at New England Patriots (4-1), 4:15 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: Like a lot of NFC teams, the Cowboys don't often get to experience Tom Brady at home, where he has won 30 regular-season games in a row.
Prediction: Patriots, 34-20
New Orleans Saints (4-1) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2), 4:15 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: After giving up 48 points to the 49ers, the Buccaneers should be humbled enough to do a better job against the Saints, who have won four in a row after an opening loss in Green Bay. Better, but not good.
Prediction: Saints, 28-24
Minnesota Vikings (1-4) at Chicago Bears (2-3), 8:20 p.m., Sunday
The Skinny: Don't suppose anyone wants to question Jay Cutler's toughness after the way he stood in there and took a beating from the Lions? He won't have the same problem against the Vikings
Prediction: Bears, 27-20
Miami Dolphins (0-4) at New York Jets (2-3), 8:30 p.m., Monday
The Skinny: Strangely, the Dolphins have won the past three meetings in New York. That might not be a good omen for the Jets, who have suddenly lost three in a row. But the winless Fish are starting Matt Moore at QB.
Prediction: Jets, 30-13
