Yep, the Pats have no weaknesses themselves. They have also proven the old adage "it's sometimes better to be lucky than good" quite convincingly over the last 2 weeks.
The Steelers lost to the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets!
Steelers have beaten two winning teams this year and lost to two losing and one .500 team. The Patriots have beaten two teams who already have 10 wins, and have lost to no one.
The Patriots have won 12 in a row. The Steelers have won two in a row.
Yes they've only won the last two by 3 points. Before the last four games, the Patriots had won every game by an average as big as the Steelers largest margin of victory. In the last four games, the Patriots have played the Colts in the RCA dome and three straight primetime games. The combined record of those teams are over 500. The Steelers last four opponents were 14-34 and Pittsburgh went 3-1 and only won one of those games by more than 3.
Whistle in the dark all you want. The Steelers will need to play out of their mind and the Patriots will need to have an off day for this one to be close.
