I don't have a ton of faith in the New England secondary and the Steelers have a ton of weapons in the passing game. They will also be without RB Le'Veon Bell, which means they should be throwing the ball a ton in this game.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Manning also has some of his best games against the Dallas Cowboys, he has 44 touchdowns in 21 career games against Dallas. These games between Manning and Romo tend to be shootouts, I would expect the same thing this year.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The Patriots are without Darrelle Revis and the Steelers will need to throw the ball a ton without Le'Veon Bell and a good defense to keep the score low.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Last season Eli had five three plus touchdown games and two of them were against the Cowboys.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

I don't love using guys on TNF games ever and Big Ben is without a key target, RB and o-lineman.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Eli can come up super lame at times and playing in Big D really can have him go either way. I think a shootout is possible, as Dallas is missing some key defenders.
