Panthers: What are the Chances...?

The Panthers are a two-touchdown underdog against the Steelers - the widest pointstread vs. Pittsburgh that I can remember. And truth be told, the Steelers should win easily, even without Troy Polamalu's big plays. The Panthers don't figure to score a lot of points with rookie QB Jimmy Clausen at the controls. After all, Clausen averages just 5.4 yards per attempt and has the league's lowest passer rating (59.1). So one can expect the Steelers to focus on shutting down Carolina's powerful running game, leaving the game in Clausen's hands. I give the Steelers an 85 percent chance of winning this game, as unless Pittsburgh's offense turns the ball over repeatedly, the Steelers ought to win pulling away.

I forgot to make a prediction on the Jets game, so I'm 8-5 in 2010. And 56-25 all-time.
