As for the game the Pittsburgh Steelers initial drive was on point until Big Ben and Air Haley drew that Antonio Brown Pass up for a huge loss. That seemed to fire up the Past and they never looked back cruising for the most part through the night with a 28-21 victory.
Steelers Miscues in the Kicking Game (PK Josh Scobee) but not even that it was the inability to get anything in the red zone that resembled a crooked six. Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams rushed for 127 yards o 21 totes as he looked like the old version of D-Will in Panthers Duds! The Pats "D" just made stops when they had to in that "Bend but don't Break" Mentality and the way teams spread you out trading a 3 for a 6 works in your favor.
Both QBs in Steelers Big Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady were on their A-Game as Tom Terrific was bringing like most thought he would. Brady was 25 of 32 for 288 yards and 4 TDs. Three of those TDs went to none other than TE Rob Gronkowski (5 rec 94 yds 3 TD) who looked in mid-season form. Gronk's partner in crime WR Julian Edelman led New England with 97 yards on eleven grabs.
Ben was 26 of 38 for 351 yards and a TD and an INT. Hit top target Antonio Brown grabbed 9 Wilson Pigskins for 133 yards and a TD as A.B. is a 10/100 walking on every Sunday. The Steelers left plenty of plays on the field and all those need to be corrected before the home opener on Sunday September 20, 2015 versus the Niners Empire at Heinz.
Keith Butler's new "D" at times looked "Dazed and Confused" but at other times looked solid. They will get that cleaned up as that fumble on the goal line by Pats RB Dion Lewis that Steeler Safety Will Allen could not locate was huge down the stretch as "Gronk" recovered it and later would score his 3rd TD on the night. Pats will get the Bills Mafia next Sunday in an early AFC East Showdown!
