Week 3: vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Cam Newton sliced up the Lions' secondary for 22/34 yielding 281 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, but did take an uncomfortable five sacks for -30 yards during the contest. Greg Olsen (eight targets for 7/72/0 receiving) and Kelvin Benjamin (eight for 2/46/0) were the most heavily targeted Panthers, but Benjamin had some issues with drops/lapses of concentration in the game. Jason Avant (seven for 5/54/1) and Jerricho Cotchery (4/46/0) provided steady hands and a diet of first downs to Newton. These four make up a surprisingly effective receiving stable entering the third week of regular season. Pittsburgh gave up 19/31 for 230 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions to Brian Hoyer and the Browns last week (Hoyer was sacked three times for -24 yards). The Steelers' defense was ranked ninth in the NFL last year, averaging 222 net yards passing allowed per game. So far this year, they average 186 yards allowed per game (seventh in the NFL), but have zero interceptions generated vs. three TDs allowed. Pittsburgh's rush D is so weak right now that teams are preferring to run on them (Baltimore tried 36 rushes last week vs. 29 passes attempted). Newton may not need to throw the ball that much against the soft Steelers' D, but he may be able to do some good things with his legs this week - on balance, this looks like a neutral matchup for the 2-0 Panthers.
