Week 1 Picks, Part I

Just picking tonight's game to get it on record. Check back this weekend for Sunday and Monday night picks.

Miami (0-0) at Pittsburgh (0-0), 8:30 p.m.
This game really looked like a winner when the schedule came out. But Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is out and Charlie Batch is in. That pretty much eliminates home field advantage, at least. That's not good news for the Steelers. Both teams are pretty solid, and anything can happen in Week 1. Easy to over-analyze a game like this in Week 1, so I'm just going to pick it.
Prediction: Dolphins, 24-17.
