PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – With the NFL season kicking off on Thursday, KDKA’s Bob Pompeani is joined by NFL analyst Greg Bedard of Sports Illustrated.

Greg predicts a Steelers loss in the Super Bowl to the 49ers this season. Greg really likes what he sees and what he has heard out of practice and year two of Todd Haley’s offense.

“I have Ben Roethlisberger as my MVP this season,” he said.

Last year, Greg had Steelers fans down on him after predicting the team would miss the playoffs.

“The defense looks more active than old this year. Offensive line health and play will be very important,” he said.

The Browns will also surprise people. Greg believes that the Ravens will be able to reload to play well again, but the Bengals will fall short of the post-season.

New England will have an improved defense that will contribute to another great year.

Greg is not that crazy about the Broncos, predicting the Chiefs will win the AFC West.
