Steelers Control Playoff Fate After Beating Patriots

By December 17, 2018 No Comments

A game this late in the season against the New England Patriots only means one thing — a must win. The Pittsburgh Steelers answered the call, defeating Bill Belichick and the Pats, 17-10. It was a surprise to Steelers nation at the coin toss when Pittsburgh decided to take the ball to start the game, which they haven’t done all season. That first drive gave Pittsburgh a 7-0 lead. Tom Brady was picked off by Joe Haden midway through the 4th quarter and New England never recovered. Pittsburgh now travels to New Orleans to take on Drew Brees and the Saints Sunday at 4:25 p.m. Below are photo highlights from visuals editor Jake Mysliwczyk.
