Steelers Thrash the Despicable Patriots

Last week I didn't believe I was going to get to write the above headline this morning.

In addition to shocking the Patriots, the Steelers shocked me. You can gauge the level of my surprise simply by reading my previous blog post.

I consider any season in which the Steelers beat up on the Patriots a successful one. Although the 25-to-17 score doesn't really reflect the level of the Steelers thorough domination of the over-confident Patriots, it was truly a beautiful thing to watch.

It may be the best the Steelers have looked all season and it was against one of the best teams in the NFL.

The key to the victory wasn't just an impressive pattern of work by Roethlisberger and company on offense, but by the entire Steelers team's relentless effort on both sides of the ball to keep the New England offense off the field.

Time management by the offense and savvy, determined play by the defense simply kept the football out of Brady's hands.

Too old and tired to win? Try telling the Steelers that.

Next week's encounter with Baltimore is even more critical to the Steelers playoff picture.

A little more of what they gave the Patriots would be nice.
