Steelers vs Panthers Prediction And Odds: Panthers 34 Steelers 9
Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Carolina Panthers for their upcoming fixture of the 2021 NFL pre-season match. The match is scheduled to be played on Saturday, August 28th at 7:30 p.m at Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina, United States. The 2020 NFL preseason was canceled due to COVID. While the Hall of Fame Game did not have much to offer, it surely pumped up the fans for the upcoming season. NFL fans finally got to witness live football this year. The NFL season looks relentless and the fans can gear themselves up for an exciting year ahead.
Steelers vs Panthers Prediction And Odds: Preview
The Steelers got few superstars during their preseason matchups. However, there are five players who might have their last shot in impressing the coach before the season kicks off. Mark Gilbert, Cody White, Jamie Jones, Quincy Roche, and Rashaad Coward to be named.
The Steelers will play their final game of the preseason on Friday against the Panthers. Nevertheless, the Steelers’ squad will at least indulge in two practice sessions after the game against the Panthers and before the 4 PM deadline on Tuesday for the final roaster.
But it is kind of obvious that the coaches will make their mind on how the players will perform against the Panthers at the Bank of America Stadium on Friday. Edge rushers Roche and Hones will be up against each other for the one remaining spot. While White is eyeing to bag the NO. 5 or 6 wide receiver role. Coward is aiming to get the role of the backup offensive lineman. Rookie Gilbert will be desperate to leave a strong impression in the final preseason game.
Dwayne Haskins became a fan favorite instantly after coming as the first-round pick in the Pittsburgh Steelers squad. The upcoming game is going to be very crucial for Haskins. He is tipped to replace Mason Rudolph as the Steelers’ No. 2 in 2021. A definite performance against the Panthers will seemingly cement his position in the Steelers team for the upcoming season.
The Carolina Panthers are steadily pipping down a competitive training camp to prepare for the 2021 season. The Panthers got a wide look at how the regular season will be when they returned to Charlotte post their training camp at Wofford Colle. The team is seemingly in a positive tone before their preseason final against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The coaches have certainly decided on most of the spots. However, the Panthers’ management still has few big decisions to make in regards to the depth chart status. The coaches will make the call on who is going to be included in their 53-man roster in the coming week.
This is going to be the last chance for most of the players to impress the coaches. Some of the veterans, who were left out of the first two games, will also look to make a steady impact in the game against the Steelers.
There is not an easy way to say this but this is probably going to be Joey Slye’s last chance to prove his mettle to the Panthers’ fans as well as the coaches. Slye will have to prove that he can be relied on upon. Joey didn’t have the best of the starts in the preseason. Adding to that, the Panthers, now, have a strong backup for Joey Slye in the name of Dominik Eberle. Slye and Eberle will be fighting for the 53-man place in the roaster.
