You're not alone if you went to Google today and typed in "who is the Steelers' backup quarterback?" The question has been on the minds of football fans from coast to coast ever since Ben Roethlisberger exited Pittsburgh's game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon with a non-contact injury.
At first glance college football's Week 3 looked uninspiring, but there are always signals in the noise—little breadcrumbs or clues to lead us to strong opinions going forward. Let's see what we learned this past weekend.
The National League is where our plays land Monday, as the Cardinals host the Nationals and the Reds take on the Cubs.
Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears came out flat against the Packers during Week 1. Can they right the ship this Sunday against the Broncos? We examine that matchup as well as Kansas City vs. Oakland and New Orleans vs. Los Angeles.
The long-suffering fanbases of the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets entered 2019 with hopeful fantasies of a breakthrough season producing a playoff appearance. Led by exciting first year head coaches (Freddie Kitchens and Adam Gase) and piloted by second year quarterbacks (Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold), many speculated that one or both teams would emerge as contenders in the AFC. Then Week 1 happened.
Both the Eagles and Falcons got off to slow starts in their respective Week 1 contests, but only Philadelphia was able to overcome their early deficit, beating the Redskins 32-27. Atlanta lost 28-12 to the Vikings, only managing to score two TDs in “garbage time.” Will a more balanced Eagles squad prevail in this primetime affair?
Week 2 of the NFL season features an exciting NFC North rivalry showdown, a potential bounce-back game for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the NFC Championship Game rematch we have all been waiting for.

Week 3 of the college football season is here, and we are going after some bad favorites again. We have cashed in on a few this year, and has more than paid the price of admission. This week we need to really focus because oddsmakers are getting better, and we need to keep up!
The Minnesota Twins (89-57) will try to put some distance between themselves and the Cleveland Indians (86-61) in the American League Central race when they begin a three-game series at Progressive Field on Friday night. Here’s what bettors should be anticipating for the weekend series.
