Bet on the NFLSteelers hit the road for a 3 game series, starting at Miami, where the Steelers try to shut down Brown and Williams to defeat the Dolphins and prove the sportsbook odds wrong.Although this Sunday’s game vs. the Miami Dolphins may be the first of 3 road games for the Steelers, game one isn’t looking so bad as the Dolphins have an unfortunate record of 0-2 at home, and the Steelers just so happen to have a record of 2-0 on the road. Pittsburgh’s focus will be to hault the running team of Brown and Williams and put the game in the hands of quarterback Chadd Henne.
This is a big game for the Steelers as they try to hold on to one of the top spots in the AFC. Linebacker James Harrison was recently fined $75,000 by the NFL for a hard helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. Harrison was so fired up by the fine that he threatened to retire a day later, but recently announced he will not be retiring after all. Pittsburgh’s offense was looking good with Roethlisberger back on the field last week.
As for the Dolphins, first round draft pick rookie defensive end Jared Ordick is hurt for the second time this season and just may be sidelined for the reast of the year. Coach Sparano says he will be out for a long time. He was just about to return from a broken right lieg injurty when he hurt his left foot at the end of a practice this week. But according to Sportsbook the Dolphins are still the 3 point home faves for this game with the over under listed at 41.
