It's been a long season for both for a myriad of reasons as the Steelers took it on the chin from then rival Purple Browns and exited quickly in the "Fight for Lamar". Miraculously the Patriots win Big Bowl 49 after the Seahawks and Coach Pete Carroll decided they didn't want "Beast Mode" hanging around Mickey and Minnie Mouse as he probably would have been kicking it with Donald Duck and Goofy anyway!
Now forget all the formalities as its time to line up and hit the other colored jersey with checks in the mail to Roger. Let's go inside to Steelers/Pats Opening Night Act 2K15:
Top 3 Key Match Ups:
Big Ben vs Tom Terrific
Steelers Offense vs Pats Secondary
Pats Offense vs Steelers D/Secondary
What to Look for:
Steelers have no RB Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams its your turn...
Patriots surprisingly cut RB Jonas Gray and now he and Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley are all gone...Legarrette Blount suspended and now its Brandon Bolden and James White...who?
Steelers WRs A.B. and Markus Wheaton vs Pats DBs...who wins?
"Gronk" vs Steelers Backers...who wins?
How will the loss of Steelers Center Maurkice Pouncey dba Twin #53 effect the Steelers O-Line?
No DT Vince Wilfork upfront for the Pats how will the run defense fare?
Steelers Safeties Mike Mitchell and Shamarko Thomas have their work cutout but it's the DB's you worry about can that Steelers Secondary hold up?
It's not the Dink and Dunk Passing Game but extended hand-offs as Brady and the Pats are the best in the "Shield" in doing so...will that Steelers LB Corps be up for the challenge? Watch Water Bug RB Dion Lewis in Passing Game for Pats...
Pats Cheerleaders...Ladies your always in the Winners Circle and do not let anyone tell you different!
Will this be a shootout or one-sided or a barn burner going to the last possession as both Teams are fired up?
Both Teams have major changes and suspensions of Top Tier Talent going on as its the next man up...or is it?
The game will be won in the trenches and who has the better O-Line?
Numbers never lie as Tom Terrific is 7-2 vs the Steelers...with huge numbers!
Projected Winner: Pick'em
