It's the Friday preview podcast and we take a look at the biggest games on the Week 4 schedule, starting with Steelers-Texans.
Both teams are 2-1, with Pittsburgh squeaking by Indianapolis last Sunday night while Houston blew the win against New Orleans. If the previous three weeks are any indication, this game will come down to the Texans' strength -- their offense -- versus the Steelers' strength -- their defense. Breaking it down further: who ya got -- Andre Johnson or Troy Polamalu?(Intersestingly, Houston's defense is still mediocre, as is Pittsburgh's offense -- at least on paper.)
We also discuss Patriots-Raiders (no way New England loses two in a row, right? Right?!), Jets-Ravens (Rex Ryan Reunion Bowl), the obligatory Brinson Bowl (any game involving the Panthers, who travel to Chicago this weekend), as well as Lions-Cowboys.
Finally, PredictionMachine.com's Paul Bessire stops by to offer up some expert advice on -- you guessed it -- accurately predicting this week's winners.
