BTSC Steelers Six Pack: Pittsburgh-New England Preview Edition

IX - Here's your Week 8 TV Distribution Map. Vast swaths of the country will see the Steelers host the Patriots in the late game. Not everyone though, including myself.

X - The Boston Globe breaks down the Steelers-Patriots matchup fairly thoroughly, with a heavy emphasis on what the Steelers like to do schematically on both sides of the ball.

XIII - In his breakdown of Sunday's marquee matchup, Peter King hones in on Mike Wallace and the fits he should be able to give New England's secondary.

XIV- The Patriots and the Steelers both took wide receivers in the third round of the 2009 Draft. Thankfully they opted to select Brandon Tate instead of Mike Wallace.

XL - I made Week 8 picks over at SB Nation Pittsburgh. Yes, I'm taking the Steelers to win on Sunday over the Patriots. Don't forget to make your picks in the BTSC Pick Em League, set your fantasy lineups, etc.

XLIII - I like the Steelers chances to run the ball successfully much more if MLB Jerod Mayo can't play due to the injury that limited his participation in Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Bonus Link: The Week 8 edition of the National Football Post's Friday Football Forecast was filed yesterday. Each week, myself and 31 other beat writers and bloggers give their take on the upcoming game of the team they cover.
