If Brian Hoyer can look like solid against the Steelers, Newton will be a stud! He played well against the Lions in Week 2. Expect another solid game against Pittsburgh in Week 3.
He didn't fare well against the Vikings in Week 2, but the Patriots still got the win. I am guessing that was Brady's primary goal rather than pleasing his owners. Brady is on the downturn of his career, but he can still be a nice play against the right match-up.

If he can't put out good numbers for Oakland then we are really in trouble.

At home and Pitt D not really the elite unit we're used to seeing, although Cam still getting barrings here.
He's been meh so far but it's the freaking Raiders, man.

The Oakland secondary is awful, Brady should be looking at a big home opener.
