Former Buccaneers quarterback Shaun King, now a member of the NBC Sports family, is spending the week in Stamford, Connecticut for NBC SportsTalk. And he visited the Stamford studio of PFT Live on Wednesday for a guest spot on (you guessed it) PFT Live.

Specifically, Shaun thinks the Steelers will slip, and that the Panthers will rise.
