Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots Details
New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Patriots and Steelers have won a lot of games over their long histories and are perennial Super Bowl competitors. The Patriots have reached an NFL-record nine Super Bowls, and they’ve won five since 2001. The Steelers are right behind the Pats with eight Super Bowl appearances. They’ve won 6 Super Bowls throughout their history.
Coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have been the constants in New England during their period of dynastic success in the new millennium. The Patriots selected Brady with the 199th pick of the 2000 NFL Draft. Brady’s hall-of-fame career since then has likely made him the biggest steal in the history of the draft. Brady has been one of the most dominant players since he became the Pats’ starter, and the Patriots have been to 11 NFC Championship games since 2001. In Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons, Brady led the Patriots on a 25 point comeback after the Falcons scored to go up 28-3 partway through the 4th quarter. The Patriots scored 25 unanswered points and forced overtime for the first time in Super Bowl history. New England won the game on their opening possession in the overtime period. Brady set Super Bowl records with 43 completions and 466 passing yards. He was named Super Bowl MVP for a fourth time (also a record).
The Patriots had to go through the Steelers to get to Super Bowl LI: the two teams played in the AFC Championship in the 2016-17 playoffs. Since 2004, Ben Roethlisberger has started at quarterback for the Steelers. Big Ben has led the Steelers to two of their Super Bowl victories, and his .710 career winning percentage is one of the best in NFL history. The Steelers’ primary running back, Le’Veon Bell, was a steal for the team in the second round of the draft. He consistently ranks among the top rushers in the league, and has been to two Pro Bowls since he started for the Steelers in 2013. The Steelers’ last Super Bowl win came in 2008, over the Arizona Cardinals.
Historic Patriots vs. Steelers Games
2016-17 AFC Championship Game: The Steelers couldn’t overcome an early injury to running back Le’Veon Bell. Tom Brady had 384 passing yards and three touchdowns, and the Pats’ defense held the Steelers to just 9 points until near the end of the fourth quarter. The Patriots won 36-17 and advanced to yet another Super Bowl, where they defeated the Atlanta Falcons.
When do the Steelers play the Patriots?
The Broncos and Steelers play in different divisions of the AFC. The Patriots play in the AFC East and the Steelers play in the North. The NFL has a rotating scheduling system that means teams not in the same division won’t play each other every year. The two teams can also meet in the first three rounds of the playoffs, as they have previously.
