Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Giants – Preseason Week 1 Predictions

Source: empirewritesback.com

Steelers are coming into this season as the number one contender for the New England Patriots in the AFC. They have always been up there among the best NFL teams each and every year and this season is going to be no different. The offense that they have is one of the best in the whole NFL and we are going to see them even stronger this season on that side of the ball. It is always the defense that is questionable for this squad.

If the defense can put a solid season together, they just might be able to pose a threat to the defending NFL champions. It all starts against the New York Giants in Week 1 of the preseason on Friday night when they will be visiting MetLife Stadium.

Speaking of the Giants, they are looking pretty good on paper. The defense made some huge improvements last year and even carried them into the Playoffs. Brandon Marshall is going to be a big addition for this team. He just might be that difference maker alongside Odell Beckham Jr. that they are looking for.

The offense is going to have its first test this week when the Steelers come. A lot of people will be given the chance in this game that is just a test for the both squads. We believe that the Giants are going to end up on top when this game is over as they are playing on their home turf. Starters will get some looks but it is mostly going to be all bench guys and even third units after that first quarter.

It is going to be interesting to see how the starters are going to square off, especially for the Giants on the offensive side of the ball. In the end, they will win this game 31:27.
