Patriots vs Steelers Preview

The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers meet for the first time since 1998 without quarterbacks named Tom Brady or Ben Roethlisberger playing.

Roethlisberger retired from the Steelers this year, and Mac Jones took the reins for the Patriots in 2021, a year after Brady’s departure for Tampa Bay. The stakes have changed, at least a little, too.

New England (0-1) enters the game in must-win situation to avoid dropping to 0-2. The Patriots haven’t fallen to 0-2 since 2001. In the past, the Patriots-Steelers matchup often meant a battle for high playoff seeding.

“We’ve had a great deal of urgency all week, and I think we understand the situation we’ve put ourselves in,” Patriots captain Matthew Slater said via ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “The last thing we want to do is come out and play the game like we did last week.”

Miami beat the Patriots last week 20-7, and the Patriots didn’t score until the third quarter. Jones threw for 213 yards and a touchdown versus an interception. The Patriots mustered 78 yards on the ground as a team, and the defense gave up 307 yards of total offense.

“It’s one week. This is a marathon,” Patriots defensive tackle Davon Godchaux said via ESPN. “Every game counts, but the big ones are in November and December. Not that we don’t want to win early on, because you always want to take care of business, but it’s a long season.”

“We have a chance to bounce back against a great Pittsburgh team. We’ll be ready to play,” Godchaux added.

Pittsburgh (1-0) entered the season in rebuild mode but found a way to win against the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals to open the season. Steelers kicker Chris Boswell won it with a 53-yard field goal in a 23-20 victory.

New Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky didn’t light the world on fire either with just 192 yards passing and a touchdown. The Steelers didn’t dominate on the ground either with just 78 rushing as a team, and the Bengals torched the defense at times with 432 total yards of offense.

Pittsburg lost defensive star T.J. Watt to injury in the game. It doesn’t haven’t Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin too worried about his defensive unit though.

“You pivot,” Tomlin said on his coach’s show. “The reality is that the guys taking his place on the field is not going to be T.J. You’ve got to redistribute you strengths elsewhere.”
