Take your pick: Patriots or Steelers?
By James Walker
The best game in the NFL this coming weekend takes place in Pittsburgh. That is where the reigning AFC champion Steelers (5-2) will host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (5-1).
New England is favored coming off the bye week. But is that correct? Pittsburgh is heating up and won three games in a row. The defense is ranked third in the NFL and the offense has big-play capability with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and speedy receiver Mike Wallace.
But New England also has played very well this year and holds the best record in the AFC. Brady has given Pittsburgh headaches in his career. Will New England continue to beat Pittsburgh in big games?
