The New York Jets (0-2) play their home opener on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins (1-0). It is being aired on CBS at 1pm EST. The Jets have not looked good over the past two games.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Concerns about Le’Veon Bell

The Pittsburgh Steelers are undefeated and in a great spot right now. The only concern I have is that Le’Veon Bell has yet to get rolling.

Through two games this season, Bell has averaged a lowly...
