What We Can Learn From the Patriots-Steelers Game

The Game of the Year had everything you want from football.

The game between New England and Pittsburgh had everything you want from the NFL (and then some you don’t want): iconic quarterbacks, the best players at their positions looking unstoppable, a potentially season-altering injury to a superstar, and an ending decided by a controversial rule. While Jesse James’s game-winning touchdown that wasn’t is probably what most people are talking about today, but there is so much more we could learn from the game, and it allows us to predict how the next two months might unfold. Pittsburgh has what it takes to earn a rematch with New England in just over a month from now. The Steelers might even give the Patriots a run for their money because their offensive performance this weekend was a sign that the team can present significant issues for New England. And according to The Ringer, whatever happened in the end zone with James should have been considered a touchdown. Pittsburgh also found some success when they switched from zone to man coverage.
