Week 15: @ Pittsburgh Steelers
In Week 15, the Patriots will be playing their third straight game on the road, that will also be coming off a short week after playing on Monday Night Football against the Dolphins the week before.
In addition to the game against the Steelers being the third week in a row on the road, the Steelers are also one of the best teams in the AFC. With their three-headed monster of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers can score 30 points on any team in the NFL.
After being eliminated by the Patriots last season, this could be a great opportunity for the Steelers to get revenge, and also send a statement to the Patriots. In the playoff loss, the Steelers were without Bell for most of the game. With one of the best players in the NFL being injured, it allowed the Patriots to turn all of their attention to shutting down Brown.
The schedule certainly did no favors to the Patriots in this game, and after a 13-0 start, the Patriots will drop their first game of the season and come up short of perfection.
