i dont think it will be as much to do with the inevitable tom brady suckfest as it will this-
your scenario makes sense because the patriots defense are pu$$ies that shy away from contact.
despite penalties and fines, the steelers embrace it.
in all honesty, the steelers are probably better served being "disrespected" with no primetime game for the opening weekend (especially with their youth movement).
