After a devastating loss at the hands of their AFC nemesis Miami Dolphins and an injury to veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who will be sidelined in the next few games at least, the Pittsburgh Steelers are disappointing heading into their Week 7 game against the New England Patriots. Steelers backup quarterback Landry Jones will see a rare start under the center against one of the most impressive franchises in the league so far this 2016 NFL regular season.
Since the Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin took charge of the organization dating back since 2007, his squad have managed to pull a victories only two of their six games against the New England Patriots, with the last win coming in 2011 at Heinz Field.
The most recent contest was the season opener last year when the New England Patriots running out 28-21 winners at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, 11 receptions for 97-yards and tight end Rob Gronkowski, 5 receptions for 94-yards and three touchdowns largely ate up the Pittsburgh Steelers secondary. With a 21-3 lead in the third quarter, the Pittsburgh were never really in the matchup until recording a pair of late scores as consolation.
