TWEETSHAREPINIn the spirit of prognostication, we at BTSC are sharing our gut feelings with you, our readers, on what we believe will occur as thePittsburgh Steelersopen their 2016 slate of games on Monday Night against theWashington Redskins. (Am I allowed to still call them that?)
It is all right here so we can't deny it later when we are more off than Maury Goldeberg's (Jeff Garlin, the actor that looks like Mike Golic, from ABC's "The Goldbergs") pants at the end of a long day.
Close game, but the Steelers will open the gap late. The offense is just too much, and the ‘Skins will struggle to keep quarterback Kirk Cousins upright most of the day.
Offense shines, as Steelers roll in front of "home" crowd at FedEx Field.
Josh Norman may be a great corner but he can't cover everyone.
Pittsburgh’s defensive line proves to cause trouble and the redskins can’t get much going on the ground, along with being flustered by the pass rush. The game remains close though because Pittsburgh has trouble scoring in the red zone without Bryant. Ultimately the defense finishes the deal, showing those watching Monday Night Football that Pittsburgh’s defense is back.

Steeler Nation’s Capital: Ben and AB light up the night, while D-Will hits paydirt twice.
Ben and Brown will do the usual damage, but I expect DeAngelo Williams to have a big night against a defense that ranked 25th against the run in 2015.
Young Steelers D rises to the occasion and carries the team to a road victory.
Flashback to "Old Style Steelers Football" as ground game and defense lead the way.
The Pittsburgh Steelers offense might take some time to warm up, but the defense gives them a hand with some key turnovers. 1-0 coming back home to play Cincinnati.
Pitt 34-31 OT
Fantastic shootout for the Monday night crowd. The young Steeler defense has a long ways to go.
While the defense shows how much room there is for improvement, the offense proves to be just as lethal as expected.
