New England Patriots Analysis
The Patriots will be trying to bounce back from their surprising loss to the Miami Dolphins. This was in their last game. The Miracle in Miami. Despite the loss, they still have a two-game lead in the AFC East. Also, they should be able to clinch the division with a win over the Steelers.
The last time the Patriots played in Pittsburgh, they needed a last minute score and a controversial call by the referees to get the win. With the Steelers struggling at the moment, the Patriots are hoping they won’t need any late game heroics to get the win.
Tom Brady continues to play well for the Patriots, completing 65.7 percent of his passes for 3,700 yards, 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions. With the team struggling on the defensive end, they will need a big game from Brady to get the win.
Week 15 NFL Betting
The Steelers were competing for the best record in the AFC a few weeks ago, now they find themselves trying to hang on to their slim division lead, and they will need a win over the Patriots to keep the Baltimore Ravens from moving into first place in the division.
The Steelers will also be hoping that running back James Conner is healthy enough to play against the Patriots, after missing the team’s loss to the Oakland Raiders in their last game.
If Conner can’t play, the Steelers will have to rely on Ben Roethlisberger to move the ball through the air and hope he does a better job protecting the ball.
The Steelers also have to start playing better on defense if they want to beat the Patriots on Sunday.
