The Pittsburgh Steelers offense that comes into Oakland Sunday has so far been a one-dimensional unit.

The Steelers are averaging 237 yards per game through the air, eighth best in the NFL, with four touchdown passes. Meanwhile they are last in the league in rushing, averaging just 2.6 yards per carry.

Couple that with Oakland’s crippled and hastily revamped secondary, and it’s no secret where the Steelers will attack the Raiders this Sunday.

First down, pass. Second down, pass. If necessary, pass again.

Since the Raiders lost cornerback Shawntae Spencer last Sunday in Miami, Oakland has been busy trying to patch together a new secondary.

Spencer and Ronald Bartell – the other starting corner in the season opener – are both down and out with injuries. The two backup corners now pressed into duty, Pat Lee and Joselio Hanson, have struggled, particularly in a loss to the Dolphins in Miami this past Sunday when the Raiders dropped to 0-2.

Now, the Raiders are experimenting with moving safety Michael Huff to corner, and on Wednesday signed cornerback Brandian Ross from the Green Bay Packers practice squad.

“Next guy has to step up,” said Hanson this week. “That’s why you have depth on a team. In the NFL, everybody can play, so the next guy has to step up.”

If Huff plays some corner this Sunday, Matt Giordano would take Huff’s spot at safety.

“Huff is an all-aroung guy,” Lee told the a.ssociated Press of his teammate. “He’s a good player. He can do whatever out there on the field. He’s going to do his job. That’s Huff.”

According to STATS LLC, both Lee and Hanson were vulnerable last week: Hanson allowed five catches in six attempts against him for 58 yards; Lee allowed four catches in six throws for 56 yards.

Said Lee: “We just have to pick it up. Guys that are backing up just have to do what we have to do and do our jobs right.”

Against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, that will be a challenge. The veteran QB, who’s won two Super Bowls, has converted 19-of-34 third-down situations and appears to be in sync with a strong set of receivers.

The Raiders’ acquisition of Ross may not pay dividends immediately – it might be overly optimistic to expect him to jump into action this Sunday and make a difference – but he’s a player that Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie is very familiar with and admires.

McKenzie, who served with the Packers before coming to Oakland, signed Ross to Green Bay’s practice squad last season as an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State. According to the a.ssociated Press, McKenzie convinced Ross to stay in Green Bay last year when he had to a chance to go to another team.

Now, McKenzie has brought him to the Raiders.

“He’s a big guy, a physical guy, has got some coverage skills,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said of Ross. “He’s a guy that Reggie knew about from being there with him, so he was a guy we thought could come in and compete.”

For Ross, 6-0 and 191 pounds, this is his big opportunity to play in the NFL, and he’s eager.

Wrote Ross on Twitter Wednesday after being signed by Oakland: “Thanks for the warm welcome, #RaiderNation. I’m a do my best to make y’all proud.”

He’ll certainly get his chances Sunday against the Steelers’ passing game.
The Oakland Raiders are still looking for their first win of the year and thus far they have looked like one of the worst teams in the NFL. At QB Carson Palmer hasn’t looked like the missing piece the Raiders hoped he would be as in his second season in Oakland he has completed 59.6 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and an interception while being sacked three times. Last season when Darren McFadden was healthy Oakland was winning but this year he is averaging 2.1 yards per carry and he has 15 catches averaging 7.0 yards per. Brandon Myers has 11 catches, Darrius Heyward-Bey has seven catches, and Rod Streeter has six catches. The Raiders defense allows 355 yards per game with 147.5 of those yards coming on the ground and 207.5 yards through the air with just two sacks and no interceptions. Phillip Wheeler has 14 tackles, Tyvon Branch has 12 tackles, and Matt Shaughnessy has 1.5 sacks. After looking bad against Miami last week the Raiders have nowhere to go but up.

The Pittsburgh Steelers bounced back from their opening week loss to the Broncos as they beat the Jets at Heinz Field in week two. Ben Roethlisberger has already been feeling the pass rush in the pocket and despite being sacked eight times he has completed 64.8 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and an interception. Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer have both filled in for the injured Rashard Mendenhall who should be back sometime soon. Antonia Brown has 11 catches, Mike Wallace has nine, and Emmanuel Sanders and Heath Miller each have seven catches for the Steelers. Defensively Pittsburgh allows 276.5 yards per game with 92 of it coming on the ground and 184.5 through the air with four sacks but they are yet to have an interception. Larry Foote leads the Steelers defense with 16 tackles, Lawrence Timmons has nine tackles, and Ryan Clark has eight tackles despite missing the first game. The story remains the same for the Steelers as they will need to protect Roethlisberger better and they will need to improve the running game if they are going to be successful.

Oakland is 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 1-4 against the spread in their last five AFC games, and 6-2-1 against the spread in their last nine games following a game where they allowed 30 or more points. Pittsburgh is 2-5 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against AFC teams, and 0-5 against the spread in their last five road games. The underdog has covered in six of the last eight meetings of these two.

The total in this one is set a little too low as today’s NFL is all about scoring and we should see some here as both of these teams have quick strike ability. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as making the pick available for individual purchase.

Key Matchup To Watch For :

Pat "Bruce" Lee


[pic - click to view]



VS.

Taco Wallace :

Projection : Wallace could be striking this pose on the bench the entire game and still break over 150 yards on Lee.

Over/Under 200+ Yards for Wallace against the Raiders?


Key Matchup To Watch For :

Joselio Handsome

VS.

Antonio "Actually Chocolate Complexion Not" Brown


[pic - click to view]



Projection : Although Handsome, it is a guarantee that "Actually Chocolate Complexion Not" Brown will make things pretty ugly early on for Handsome.

By which quarter will Handsome be replaced by one of the Raiders fans already dressed up in shoulder pads?

Something is fishy about this game. Pitt traveling from east to west is a huge advantage for oakland thats striving for that first win. Not saying they win but it wont be a massacre.

Not feeling good about this one at all.

That being said, we always play Pittsburgh tough.

You never know, if we manage to squeak one out this Sunday it could be a turning point...
