Battle for the AFC

Updated on December 16, 2017

Tom Brady

Showdown in the AFC

Tomorrow The New England Patriots (10-3) travel to Pennsylvania to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) Both teams look to claim a victory here in week 15, it has potential to be one of the greatest games we have witnessed.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are coming off a tough divisional loss in week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. I feel as if Tom Brady will come in to this game with his mind set on revenge from last weeks loss. Tom Brady seems to put on his best performances when he's bouncing back from a loss, or for example, last year...suspension.

Tom Brady served the first four games last year on a suspension, but Tom Brady returned from his suspension and threw for 406 yards and 3 touchdowns. There is a chance we see that side of Tom Brady coming in to week 15, especially when they're playing for so much. We should see a lot more from their offense this Sunday, especially with dominant Tight End Ron Gronkowski back in action, adding problems to the Pittsburgh Steelers struggling defense.

Despite the lack of defense from Pittsburgh the last couple weeks, their offense has been wreaking havoc in the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger is second behind only Tom Brady in passing yards this season so far. Le'Veon Bell once again, leads the NFL in rushing yards so far, and Antonio Brown leads the league in recieving yards. Ben Roethlisberger is coming off of an outstanding 500 yard performance last week, connecting with Antonio Brown for over 200 of those yards, while Bell tacked on three touchdowns for the potent offense.

They look to continue their dominant offensive run this week using their ultimate weapon...The Killer B's. Their primary slot receiver, Ju-Ju Smith Shueschter returns from a one game suspension, giving the already deadly offense more weapons.

We will undoubtedly see a very high scoring game tomorrow. Everyones question at this point is who will come out on top here. The game could go either way. Will the Patriots defense be able to stop the Killer B's? Will the Pittsburgh Steelers be able to defend the pass against Tom Brady? This game should come down to whoever plays the best defense.

My opinion is that Tom Brady does come back with a vengeance this week. I think the Patriots put on a great offensive performance, and the Steelers keep their offensive hot streak alive. This game will come down to the wire, but I think New England will put on a better defensive performance and prevail in a close battle with Pitgsburgh. The New England Patriots win, 34-31.
