The Steelers are slight favorites over the New York Giants on the road in Week 1. Here’s why this game won’t be a walk in the park for Pittsburgh.
The Steelers are prepped and ready to go for their Week 1 road matchup against the New York Giants. While Pittsburgh’s roster may look good on paper, they aren’t exactly known for their explosive starts out of the gate under the direction of Mike Tomlin.
Last year, Tomlin’s team was trampled by 30 points against the New England Patriots in their road season opener, and in 2018, the Steelers tied the Cleveland Browns in overtime – a game that would have ended in a loss if not for a timely T.J. Watt blocked field goal.
This year, Pittsburgh is favored in Week 1, but not by a landslide. They currently sit at 3.5 point favorites over the New York Giants, courtesy of The Action Network.
