We feel for you, London. What looked like a fantastic duel in August now pits two winless clubs fighting for relevancy. The hope for Pittsburgh is that Le'Veon Bell will be ready to roll. The rookie running back should serve as an immediate bell cow if he's healthy enough to make his NFL debut.
The Seahawks aren't an automatic win on the road, as they are at home, but if Texans receiver Andre Johnson (shin) doesn't play, Seattle's task on defense is simplified. We love what rookie DeAndre Hopkins has done out of the gate, but he benefits from teams having to deal with both pass-catchers at once.
Pro Football Focus notes that Alex Smith has attempted passes of 10 yards or fewer on 82.9 percent of his throws. That leads (if leads is the correct word) all quarterbacks through three weeks of play.
Brandon Bolden, LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley split snaps evenly in the Patriots' backfield in Week 3. Don't expect that to continue. New England is the ultimate matchup-based team and will change its approach each week. Look for Ridley to lead the way usually, even if Bolden plays more on third downs.
