A lot of week-by-week game previews of the upcoming 2012 NFL season have been flying around lately. I personally think it's delusional to preview any game when we haven't even made it to training camp yet. But I understand football writers and broadcasters need to get veeery creative and theoretical to fill space in early July. The real problem with projecting game previews from Week 1 through Week 17 is that each game played changes the reality of the following week's matchup. There's no way to predict with certainty in July how different teams will match up in October, November or December. Changes in team personnel and injury status will be coming in wholesale waves. Every good team will have a bad game here or there. Every underdog team will rise to the occasion at least once. Some teams will trend upward early then crash like stones.That's why I'm allowing myself to look no further ahead than Game 5... That's the Battle of Pennsylvania at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh...Coming back...
