This is going to be a tight one, but I think the Pats' offense is clicking right now. I think that the fact that this game is in Foxboro makes the difference. Pats win, 31-27.

The NFL confirmed that it will review Patriots LT Matt Light's Week 12 tussle with Channing Crowder for potential discipline.

Light threw several punches despite Crowder having lost his helmet before the two were ejected. Both will probably be fined, but Light is in danger of a suspension. The Pats do not have good depth behind him at left tackle.

The Pat's offense and Cassel have looked good the past couple of weeks. Then again that was against suspect defenses. The Steeler's defense will make Cassel look like what he is a career back-up. The game however will be closer than it should be as the Steeler's offensive line will make a slow aging Pats defense look good. Steeler's 27 Pats 14.

Yeah it drives me crazy when I hear that. Last year with Seau AND Bruschi, okay maybe I could understand it then, but I still hear every week all the sports shows (ESPN, Countdown, etc) talking about an old defense. It's stupid they are a young defense, with a line that's just entering it's prime (save Seymour).

On O'Connell Pioli picked him for a reason. I remember there was a statement released about him that 'he has all the skills of a modern QB and some beyond that' or something. So he just might be the same type as Cassel.

LaMont Jordan (calf) returned to Patriots practice Wednesday, albeit in a limited manner.

If Jordan is healthy for the first time in two months, BenJarvus Green-Ellis will probably be the Pats' odd man out. Jordan has more versatility than BGE and could be third string behind Sammy Morris and Kevin Faulk.

The Steelers had the number 1 overall defense last season too, allowing just 266.4 yards per game. The next closest team was Tampa Bay, which allowed 278.4 yards per game. Yet, when the Patriots played the Steelers last season, the Pats scored 34 points and had close to 500 yards total offense. Now, Brady was the QB then and Cassel is the QB now, but the fact that this game is in Foxboro leads me to think that the Pats can score between 24-31 points on Sunday. Now, as for the Steelers' offense, Willie Parker is most likely out, which means that the Steelers will have a tough time running the ball on the Patriots' rush defense, which is giving up only 100 yards per game. Furthermore, Roethlisberger is having a very pedestrian season. His 11 TD's are fewer than Cassel's 13, and his 11 INT's are more than Cassel's 8. Cassel is having a better season than Roethlisberger overall, judging by the fact that his passer rating is a full 10 points higher than Ben's. I think that the Pats put together a great gameplan, and win 31-27.

Yeah ya'll did good against us last season, but are starting safeties were both out. With Troy and Clark in there this time you won't have a Mr. Garuantee sp? (Smit) in there to pick on. Parker will be out for the game but Moore has been adequate in replacing him when we've stayed with the running game. Should be a great game, I always look forward to the Steelers playing the Pats.

The Patriots scored a touchdown on their second possession of the game, so that's false. I looked at the drive chart. Don't make claims that you cannot back up. In fact, the Pats scored on 4 of their first 6 drives of that game, so the Steelers weren't holding much of anything to a standstill in that game. The Pats allowed the Steelers within 4 points at halftime, and then pulled away in the second half. So, we aren't being stupid in thinking that we have a good chance to win this game.

Patriots DE Richard Seymour (knee) returned to practice Friday.
He was given early-week practices off, but should be fine for Sunday's tilt with Pittsburgh. Seymour has rejuvenated himself this year with 6.5 sacks and 43 stops, setting him up to challenge for career highs in both categories.

As far as our scoring goes, like I said Pats have a high powered offense again now that Cassel is comfortable in the pocket and clicking with Moss and Welker. I doubt Jordan will comeback and be effective this week, but if he is that just gives us the opportunity to wear out the Steelers front line between Faulk, Jordan, Morris, and Ellis who aside from BenJarvus should all get carries if Jordan is healthy.

Semour at 29 would be Smith's back-up at any age, Bruschi would be Farrior's backup at any age. Anybody on the Pat's would be Polomalu, Hampton, Harrison and Woodley back-up. Maybe your defense isn't as old in some spots but then again it doesn't have the quality either.

Seymour is a 5 time pro-bowler (2002-2006) who is on his way to his sixth pro bowl this season. He is also a 3 time first team all-pro. Any team would be lucky to have him, so enough with your emotional bias to Steelers' players. Richard Seymour is an asset to any team and could start on any team. Aaron Smith has been to just one pro bowl, so one could easily make the case that he isn't even in Seymour's league. But if you don't want to listen to reason, just look at the stats. Smith has played in 33 more games than Seymour in his career, yet has only 2.5 more sacks. Also, just ask around the league and the resulting response would be that Seymour is more revered throughout the league, and feared as a pass-rusher.

Wear out the Steelers front line???!!! Are you crazy or just on crack? there's no way some scrub backs are gonna wear out our line. If backs like, Portis, Westbrook, Tomlinson, can't weat out our line, no way in hell a back like Jordan, Faulk, Ellis, Morris, or Benjarvus will. The fact that the Pats use almost 5 running backs in a game proves that these guys aren't that great. I know there has been some injuries issues but come on Pats running game aginst Steelers run defense is a non issue, Steelers blow em out of the water.

Yeah if you do ask around the league and not just Pat fans you would know that Smith is by far the most respected defensive end in the league by players and coaches. Your right he doesn't get the sacks Seymour gets as he does his job which is to absorb blockers and collaspe the pocket despite being double and on occasiopn triple teamed for speed rushers like Seymour. While doing this he still gets sacks and controls the run. Although Smith isn't a speed rusher like Seymour who is a very good player no way could Seymour do what Smith does on every play.

LaMont Jordan (calf, questionable) was limited in Friday's practice.

It remains to be seen if he's active versus Pittsburgh. His two-month injury could have dropped Jordan to as low as fourth string on the depth chart.

If you want to set up a poll, I would love to see neutral fans vote on this. Anyways, your point about Smith is moot because Seymour is also often double-teamed, due to his reputation. He also opens things up for the other players on the D-Line, like Ty Warren and Vince Wilfork. Yet, Seymour still puts up impressive numbers. In fact, almost every team's best pass rusher is doubled or tripled a lot of the time. Guys like Dwight Freeney, Jaosn Taylor when he was with Miami, and some others. So, don't make a claim like that unless you think about the big picture first. So yes, Seymour can indeed do what Smith does on every play, judging by the fact that he has been to 5 times as many pro bowls as Smith. He is widely renowned throughout the NFL.

Excellent and fantastic are basically the same kind of adjectives man. And yeah, the Steelers defense can be described as both of those.

You kind of have a point about the offense. It hasn't been great, below my expectations. But that's because we've been without a healthy Parker for most of the season and that's forced Ben to throw way too much. And he has had a few bad games, but seems to be turning it around lately. Parker is questionable and I think he'll play. He and Mewelde Moore are a nice combo of running backs. Don't underestimate Ben Roethlisberger in big games either. He's been there and done that.

I say Steelers take a close one, 24-20.

You are judging a player's ability based on how many pro bowls he's been too? lmfao

Aaron Smith has been one of the more underrated and great DE's for the past 5 years at least. He's been an anchor of a consistently great Steelers defense for many, many years. Sure maybe Seymour gets more pub, but he plays in a more publicized area, been to a few super bowls, sure he's going to get more pub. He's a great player, but I don't think he blows away Aaron Smith's game at all. They are both great DE's.

I agree with you that conventional running against your defense will probably be unsuccessful for us. But what your forgetting is that we pass to set up the run. We'll get your defense thinking pass and rip off a 6 yard gain or if your trying to stop the run, how will you defend the bubble screen to Wes Welker, who by the way, usually tears up 15 yards every time they run that play.

It doesn't matter when we scored it. The Pats were only up 1 point going into the half. We made stops when they were necessary and the Pats made stops often in the first half. Even if you don't want to call it a stand still, you can at least admit that a damn good half of football was played. The Pats came out in the second half and took advantage of our young, naive starting safety. From then on the game was never the same. IMO we played a 50-50 first half and a 90-10 second half. The cornerstone of our defense was also lost for the season in that game.

Cassel can't perform in the bad weather. Look at him out there. He looks lost. After this game if I see one more Cassel vs. Brady threads I will flip out. Brady is just so much tougher than this kid. Remember Brady in the bad weather games in 2001? He loves it. Matt Cassel looks like a deer caught in headlights out there. It's not going to stop raining. Grow some balls and tough it out.

How Deltha O'Neal not within 6 yards of Santonio Holmes? They had a chance to put the Steelers away early and didn't and, they're most likely gonna pay for it.

If the Patriots don't win today they have to win every remaining game on their schedule to even have a shot and, if they're tied with someone they will not get in because we lost 4 division games and it looks like it will soon be 5 because we just gave Pittsburgh a chance to go ahead. The Colts and Steelers will own tiebreakers against us. We would be better off losing to Seattle than losing to Pittsburgh today and dropping to 5 division losses.

He better sign somewhere nice and warm next year because he plays like a prissy little girl in the bad weather. We should just throw in the towel and surrender before someone gets killed. The Patriots now have to win every remaining game and, pray for the Ravens, Colts, and Jets to lose 2 a piece.

And as much as this season may suck for you guys right now look how good you guys are with out your #1 QB or RB

I'd be really pissed off if I was on your side of that today (not trying to bait, bear with me...).

I think the Pats did a lot of uncharacteristic things today. Cassell had a really bad 2nd half, which will happen sometimes. So far this season though I've been impressed by him. Even before the two 400 yard games, he wasn't making terrible mistakes. He should bounce back from this.

Randy Moss dropped a number of passes, and that's not terribly likely to happen again.

Lastly, you had quite a few untimely penalties, that bailed us out a couple of times. That's not common for the Patriots at all.

If these two teams happen to meet in the play-offs, I wouldn't expect another 33-10 scoreline. I would definately like the Steelers chances, but the Pats are still a good football team, and I wouldn't count them out.

Good luck the rest of the way.

no cassell only fumbled twice and threw 2 ints and accounted for 4 turnovers thats all, i like how every time the pats lose, we all like to blame the D for it, im not saying they arent to be blamed but this game has to be on Cassell for all those turnovers which led to pitts points when it was close

This year... yeah. 11 TD's, 11 INT's, QB rating of 80... he's not good. I wouldn't really say BAD quarterback, I thought he had less TD's than that, but he's an average quarterback this season.

Yeah, I just know he has thrown a lot of interceptions, posted that on a whim. My bad :). But I think the Patriots should have done better against him

Classy Pittsburgh fan. Like to see that. I was at a bar and got a new ******* torn. Not to mention the little prick that posted a guy dancing.
Good luck to you the rest of the way too man

Nah Stealaz ain't a bad guy, probably just a little excited about the result :o

I just think the Patriots are a much better team than they showed tonight, and Bill Belicheck won't allow to many games with so many untimely penalties.

Yeah he's had his struggles at times this season. Our whole offense has been sputtering, but we seem to be pulling it together. It's not perfect yet (like I said, the Pats had some untimely penalties which helped us), but it's at least moving in the right direction now.

Rough loss. Could've been much worse, given that Reed wound up with three chip-shot FGs that could've easily been touchdowns. That last possession going into the locker room at half was monumentally deflating.

It allowed the Steelers to keep some of the momentum they gained with their drive and TD as well. Huge point of the game.

we just sucked. this season has almost no future benefit and thats why this loss hurts.

we thought we were gonna get a playoff run with Cassel, but it looks like thats over and so we lose him and thats it. bad season

It's not over yet. All your remaining games are winnable. The Jets and 'Fins play each other in week 17, and the Steelers have one more game with Baltimore, which could drop their record a bit.

if we make mental mistakes like today and hand the ball in a gift basket to the defense, then we dont deserve to make it.

btw i like your classy comments. good sportmanship. i wonder tho, would u be so classy had u lost? if not, its only natural lol, but its good to see someone knows how to handle winning

:laugh2: I try to be, but it's hard sometimes :o

It depends on the circumstances. Sometimes you just lose to a better team and there's nothing else you can say. But then there are times when one or two things didn't go your way, but when you point them out it sounds like you're making excuses, which just adds to the frustration sometimes.

I wouldn't expect the Pats to make this many mental mistakes again. Obvioulsy your chances aren't what they would be with Brady, but Belicheck has coached the team well this year, and I would expect the Pats to counter this week with a good, disciplined game next week. We'll see...

i agree with that first part about pointing out 1 or 2 things in a game. ppl think if u say anythin that discredits the other team, it means your hating or a sore loser. when actually those little things could have changed things dramatically. especially wen dealing with momentum

The whole team failed yesterday. Cassel looked like he was confused,the receivers droped easy passes and both the O and D were not playing the best ball. They will be lucky now to make it to the Playoffs............

Wow that was probably the Pats worst game since before Bledsoe. Horrible.

BUT we're still not out of it. Denver stomped the Jets too, so we still have a shot at winning the AFC east or getting in wild card and our remaining schedule is pretty easy going.

I smell a Steelers-Pats rematch in the playoffs.

This was an odd one.

No 3rd down conversions, dropped balls all over the place (on both teams, what was up with that anyway??)

Not everythign looked horrible. Faulk looked good, Cassel had some good passes and the line blocked well at times, and then came the second half... which looked like a car flyig down the highway and all four tires go out at the same time- a complete wreck. And the pounding ensued...

The Steelers are a sound team and they played well, esspecially in the 3rd quarter. It then looked like the Pats lost their focus, and we just got our ***** handed to us.

Hopefully next week is much better. Thank God the Jets lost. Otherwise the fat lady would be through her first verse by now.

Good job by the Steelers, they are a very good football team! We just stunk up the place! We must win every remaining game just to have a shot at the playoffs. It's possible, not probable, but possible.

The turnovers were the result of a pass rush the Patriots and Cassell have never seen before. As I said before 400 yard games aren't impressive against suspect defenses and not possible against a great defense.
The Steeler's offensive line showed up for the game and the pat's O-line played like the Steeler's did against Philly.
For you Big Ben doubter's he now has more wins in his first five years than anybody else ever and the youngest quarterback to win a super bowl so he's one of the elite.
