Steelers at Patriots Betting Guide, Picks
Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have dominated Ben Roethlisberger and Tomlin for years. Look no further than Brady’s 7-2 record against Tomlin (24 touchdowns and two interceptions). And in Foxboro? Brady is even more dominant at 5-0 with 18 TDs to zero INTs and a completion percentage above 70%.
One reason was the Steelers’ zone scheme, which Brady could pick apart in his sleep. For the most part, you need to play man and pressure Brady to have a shot at slowing him down.
Well, that’s exactly what the Steelers have started to do.
