Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots, little hope for the home team tonight, the playoffs are far away for the Steelers. Many things would have to happen for the Steelers to reach the playoffs, the first will be to win against the Patriots today. The visitors come as favorites, but without much need to win, although if they win it would be an important victory to demonstrate offensive power to the other teams.
New England Patriots: Favorites and more.
The Patriots record this season is 9-4-0 so far, the last game was on the road against the Dolphins 33-34. That game in Miami was the revenge of the Dolphins after losing in the fourth week. So far the Patriots have a guaranteed place in the playoffs, but it would be best for them to win all of the last three games this month to secure No. 1 Seed if the Chiefs lose another game. On the road the record for the Patriots is 3-4-0, the victories have been against mediocre teams, excluding the Bears.
5-0-0 in the last games against the Steelers, the victories have been mostly at home for the Patriots. The last game was last year in week 15 with a final score of 24-27 for the Patriots on the road.
Tom Brady, 65.6% in completed passes, 3700 yards, 23 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions in the season. The last interception on the road was against the Bears in the seventh week. Against the Dolphins, Brady had a good performance, the error was defensive when using Gronk as defender.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Praying for the playoffs.
The scenario that the Steelers need is almost impossible. Today they must win against the Patriots and wait for the Ravens to lose, plus they must win on the road against the Saints the following week. The Steelers do not win since the eleventh week, that last game was on the road against the Jaguars 20-16.
The last three games were defeats, only one in week thirteen against the Chargers at home was a 30-33 victory. At home the team is scoring an average of 34.5 points per game.
3-1-0 in the last four games at home. Ben Roethlisberger with 67.1% completions, 4227 yards, 28 TDs and 13 interceptions. Only 4 interceptions at home. The defensive at home allows up to 26.2 points game with 25.5 complete passes per game for visitors. The Steleers are 14 in the red zone this year.
