Watch all Sunday’s action live on Sky Sports Action from 6pm on Sunday; kick-off is at 9.25pm

The San Francisco 49ers could move to 3-0 this Sunday when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers, exclusively live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event. Here is what to expect… The Steelers (0-2) are almost unrecognisable compared to the team we’ve seen in recent seasons – at least offensively. After letting Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown walk in the offseason, they have now lost Ben Roethlisberger for the year. The ‘Killers Bs’ are no more. After a 33-3 demolition at the hands of the Patriots, followed by a tough 28-26 defeat to Seattle in their home opener, is their season over already? San Francisco (2-0) are one of this year’s surprise teams, if only with a small sample size. They have not faced playoff-level competition, but two road wins – and 72 points – is mighty impressive. They did it with defense in Week One, with two interception returns of Jameis Winston in Tampa, and exploded offensively in Week Two against the Bengals with 571 total yards – 259 on the ground. The future is now for the Steelers. When they selected Mason Rudolph in the third round of last year’s NFL Draft, Roethlisberger said he was “surprised because I thought in the third round you can get some really good players that can help this team win now.” Now it is Rudolph’s time to help the team win, and he comes in with a year of learning and solid weapons around him. When James Washington was hauling in 39 touchdowns for Oklahoma State in his college career, who was his QB? None other than Rudolph, and the rapport between these two is something to keep your eyes on. Can Rudolph unlock Washington’s potential as a deep threat? Don’t let any of this talk of the sophomores take away from the fact that running back James Conner and receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster are the offensive centerpieces, and will be heavily involved on Sunday. Pittsburgh bolstered their defense this week by trading a first-round pick for last year’s 11th overall pick Minkah Fitzpatrick, a fantastic defensive back. How much will he play? And how much of an impact might he have? 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo – who missed last season with an ACL injury – is 8-2 as their starter since 2017, boasting the best win percentage (.800) of an QB in that span. He is also undefeated at home in his 49ers career, and you have to be excited about his growth under head coach Kyle Shanahan. In the backfield, the Niners were supposed to have a Jerick McKinnon-Tevin Coleman duo but with both injured, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert have been outstanding. Look for San Fran to pound the rock again on Sunday.

Bill Murray: Top 5 Scenes

Initially a member of the Second City Touring Company, before joining ‘Saturday Night Live’ in its earliest incarnation, Bill Murray forged a career as one of the most well-known comic actors working of the past 40 years. While he has transitioned from broad comedy roles to more left-of-field dramatic roles, Murray is still as wildly unpredictable as ever, refusing point-blank to interact with the Hollywood system or even just for an interview. That story about him having a freephone number instead of an agent? That’s actually true. Here’s our pick of his five best scenes.   So much of ‘Caddyshack’ and its humour comes from virtually leaving the camera running for five minutes and letting the cast simply spin out from it. Chevy Chase putting balls while muttering away his Buddhist mantra, Rodney Dangerfield dancing with some old lady at the dinner, or Bill Murray whacking flowers and narrating his victory at the US Masters to himself. You have to hand it to Bill Murray and his bravery for completely committing to his role in ‘Scrooged’. He is a complete and utter shit who just enjoys every moment of it. Some of the pop culture references, the humour, even the setting may have dated ‘Scrooged’, but by no means does any of this detract from Murray’s performance. In a way, the slimy ’80s power executive he’s playing is made for that time. Not only that, you can tell that Murray so rarely – if ever – gets the opportunity to really just dig into the delectable humour of playing an asshole, and this scene just shows how good it can be. So much of ‘Ghostbusters’ is made up of one-liners and quotes that just about everyone can attribute to a scene. “We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!”, when the Ghostbusters defeat Slimer. “That’s a big Twinkie…”, when Egon Spengler describes the build-up of psychokinetic energy to Winston Zeddemore. For our money, this is the best one-liner of ‘Ghostbusters’, and it’s not just because it’s got William Atherton, late of ‘Die Hard’, in there. No, it’s Bill Murray’s vaulted, improvised, “Well that’s what I heard!” right after the scuffle breaks up. When you look back over ‘Lost In Translation’, so much of the movie’s heart and longing is made up of stolen glances between Murray’s deeply unhappy actor, and Johansson’s terminally lost twenty-something. While the relationship never fully materialises into something real, the sense of it just teetering on the edge and the hope and loss that comes with it all – that it would never actually work in real-life – is missing in this scene in a karaoke bar. The high-concept premise of ‘Groundhog Day’ could, like so many movies, be lost in the hands of another director or another actor. What could become a mind-bending, ruminative piece about the ultimate futility of life that’s utterly inaccessible is shaped into a heartwarming eventually, though deeply cynical initially comedy. All of that is down to two people – Bill Murray and Harold Ramis. That the two men fell out in the making of ‘Groundhog Day’ is a crying shame, but what was borne of it will last the ages. It’s easily Bill Murray’s finest work, and this scene sharply veers between profound and that smart alec humour that he deploys so well.
