Pittsburgh travels to Washington at 7:10, while the 49ers host the Rams at 10:20 in this week’s doubleheader of Monday Night Football. Both games will be televised on ESPN.

While Chip Kelly makes his debut in San Francisco, the Rams will play their first game after moving back to Los Angeles. In the Birds 24/7 Week 1 picks column, Brandon, Chris and the readers selected the Rams to win, whereas Josh picked the 49ers. Everyone, plus the majority of readers, chose the Steelers to win. Meanwhile, FiveThirtyEight’s forecast gives the Steelers and 49ers the edge. ESPN’s Football Power Index says Pittsburgh has the advantage, but it predicts San Francisco will fall at home.

Elsewhere in the NFC East, the Eagles beat the Browns, 29-10, as Carson Wentz impressed in his debut. The Giants also beat the Cowboys, 20-19.
