Pittsburgh is coming off a hard luck 30-16 loss to the Dolphins. The Steelers will be without QB Ben Roethlisberger (meniscus) and RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) are both out. After getting thrashed by the Eagles 34-3 on September 25, the Steelers beat Kansas City 43-14 and the Jets 31-13.
New England Offense vs. Steelers Defense
The Steeler D is allowing an average of 20.5 PPG. Bad news for Pittsburgh, DE Cameron Heyward ( 3 Sacks, 1 TFL, 4 PD) is out. LB Vince Williams (36 TCKL, 2 Sacks, 4 TFL), who is listed as questionable, will likely play. He’s greatly needed. The Steelers have 8 sacks, 18 TFL, 3 INTs, and 5 FF. They have done well in passes defended with 31
Pittsburgh O vs. Patriots D
The New England team is allowing just 15.0 PPG. For the Pats, DL Jabaal Sheard (3.5 Sacks, 2 TFL, 1 PD) and LB Jaime Collins (1 Sack, 1 TFL, 3 PD, 2 INTs, 1 FF) will need to step up and shutdown the Pittsburgh offense. The Patriot defense has forced seven fumbles, defended 27 passes, and caused 15 TFL. Their red zone defense is very stingy.
