It’s been nearly two decades of being owned by them Kyle Van Noy Color Rush Jersey , but the Steelers finally jammed a knife right into the Patriots’ hearts.If Steelers fans were looking for revenge following last year’s meeting between these two teams — when the Patriots won at Heinz Field after a Pittsburgh touchdown was controversially overturned — they sure did get it on Sunday. The final score? Steelers 17, Patriots 10. Though the score was fairly close, it was pretty evident which team was the better team on Sunday. Once again, New England’s defense was exposed. The Patriots couldn’t run the ball, as the Pittsburgh defense consistently smothered them. Tom Brady was under pressure all game long, and thus he was struggling mightily to make accurate throws. Everybody was dropping passes, including Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon.Confusingly, Rob Gronkowski was barely used until the tail end of the game, even though he played great in Miami last week — seemingly the first game all season in which the Pats actually used him consistently in their offense.The Patriots were never out of Sunday’s game at Heinz Field, but they were never really in it either. Any hope the Pats had of pulling out a comeback victory seemed to vanish late in the fourth quarter, when Brady was so heavily pressured in the red zone that he was forced throw the ball away — and right into the waiting arms of Joe Haden.Typically, we’d be surprised when Brady throws a late interception that essentially ends the game. After all, he’s not Tony Romo, or Jay Cutler. But this season, during this particular stretch of football the Pats are playing? It seemed like a pretty fitting way for this game to end. When I watched it, I barely even flinched.And now because of it, the Patriots have dropped down to the No. 3 spot in the AFC. If the playoffs started tomorrow, the Pats would be playing in a wild card game, rather than taking a week of rest with their usual first round bye. How’s that for revenge Chris Hogan Jersey , Steelers fans? Ever since Bill Belichick took over as Patriots head coach in 2000, and then Brady became the starting quarterback in 2001, any supposed “rivalry” between New England and Pittsburgh has been mostly one-sided. It all began with that AFC Championship Game in January 2002, when Brady went down with an injury, then Drew Bledsoe came in and led the Patriots to a 24-17 victory in his last big hurrah with the team.The Pats and Steelers have met many times since then. The results? Eleven wins for New England, and four wins for Pittsburgh. Three of those Patriot wins happened in the AFC title game. One of those Steeler wins came during the 2008 season, when Brady was sidelined for the entire year with a torn ACL.But the fourth and most recent Pittsburgh win happened on Sunday, and it was undoubtedly the most significant. In addition to possibly knocking the Patriots out of their first round bye, they also handed them their second consecutive loss, which is the first time New England has lost back-to-back games in December since the 2002 season.Is this a sign that the dominant Patriots dynasty is finally starting to crumble? They are 9-5 right now, the first time they’ve lost at least five games since 2009. They’ve lost back-to-back games in December, they can’t figure out how to win on the road, and they just might be playing football during the first week of January, once again, for the first time since ’09.Of course, if I had a dime for every time it looked like the Patriots were finished, I’d never have to write another column again in my life, and I’d probably be living in a beach house somewhere in Maui right now. They have always bounced back from these things.But will they do it this time? It’s hard to tell with this particular team. They’ve looked good at times this year, and sometimes they’ve looked great. But this team just doesn’t give off the same “Super Bowl or bust” vibe that Brady’s teams always have in the past. Whether or not this is a sign of the dynasty’s impending doom is yet to be determined.But to be completely honest Stephon Gilmore Color Rush Jersey , you’d be hard-pressed to convince me that the 2018 Pats are a Super Bowl team. They might finally be reaching the end of their incredible run of dominance, and even though they’ve owned the Steelers for nearly 18 years, Pittsburgh fans might take a little bit of pride in the fact that their team may have officially jumpstarted the beginning of the end. However you want to look at it, there is no denying that the Steelers really stuck it to the Patriots on Sunday. And you can bet they enjoyed every second of it. Anyone who missed the Game of the Season — Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 43, Pat Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs 40 — can take solace in knowing there very well could be a rematch a little more than three months away.And no one, except for players on other AFC teams, would be disappointed if Jan. 20 brings the world Patriots vs. Chiefs II, with a conference title and Super Bowl berth at stake.“I’m sure,” Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower said about Mahomes, “we’ll probably see him down the road.”Brady’s take on the KC QB who gave coach Bill Belichick’s defense all it could handle?“Big play after big play.”That’s an apt description of the whole contest Sunday night.“It was a spectacle, that’s for sure,” Patriots receiver Josh Gordon said.Just the sort of thing the NFL wants nowadays.Supremacy of offense.All attention on the passers and their targets.Plenty of points and ever-increasing fantasy numbers.Brady was 24 for 35 for 340 yards, one TD pass, one TD run, and a 39-yard completion to tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose 500th catch in the league set up Stephen Gostkowski’s go-ahead field goal on the final play. That came after Mahomes — 23 for 36 for 352 yards, four touchdown passes, a pair of picks — found Tyreek Hill for a tying 75-yard score.The Chiefs (5-1) came back after trailing 24-9 at halftime.The Patriots (4-2 and winners of three in a row) kept responding to every score Mahomes generated down the stretch.The teams combined for 30 points in the fourth quarter alone.It was back-and-forth. It was electrifying. It was memorable.It was the 200th career regular-season victory for the 41-year-old Brady, a record for a starting quarterback.It was the first career loss as an NFL starter for the 23-year-old Mahomes https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Marcus-Cannon-Jersey , who suddenly has become a bona fide star.“He’s young,” said Hightower, who had an early interception, “but he definitely doesn’t show it.”In case you missed it, here are other top topics after the NFL season’s sixth Sunday:BACK TO THE BOOTH?Jon Gruden’s return to the sideline from the TV booth continues to be an unmitigated disaster — on the field and off. His Oakland Raiders dropped to 1-5 by putting up little resistance in a 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. No one in the 32-team NFL has a worse record than the Raiders, whose only victory came against the Cleveland Browns. And no one has a worse point differential than Oakland, which has been outscored by 66 points after merely six games. There’s more, too. Gruden has been blasted for trading away elite linebacker Khalil Mack and had to answer questions after Sunday’s setback about a report that receiver Amari Cooper is available now.SAD SACKNever a good thing when a QB’s completion count is exceeded by the number of times he’s sacked, but that’s exactly what happened to Marcus Mariota in the Tennessee Titans’ 21-0 loss to Terrell Suggs and the Baltimore Ravens. Suggs had one of Baltimore’s 11 sacks, one shy of the NFL record. Mariota went 10 for 15 for 117 yards. “I can do a better job of stepping up in the pocket,” Mariota said. “I put our guys in a bad spot, trying to run around too much.”‘WE WANT DALLAS!’That was the familiar chant heard at Washington’s home stadium as its 23-17 victory over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers wound down. The Redskins (3-2) host the NFC East rival Cowboys (3-3) next week, and the matchup becomes a lot more intriguing thanks to what happened Sunday. Coaches Jay Gruden and Jason Garrett both were heavily criticized recently. Washington’s defense and Dallas’ offense were coming off problematic performances. And those units were both what generated victories, including Dak Prescott’s two-TD-pass, 82-yard-rushing showing as the Cowboys beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 40-7.CATCH AS CATCH CANNo NFL team wanted Adam Thielen coming out of college. And no NFL player ever started a season quite the way the Vikings‘ undrafted receiver has this one. With 11 catches for 123 yards and a score in Minnesota’s 27-17 win against the Arizona Cardinals, Thielen raised his total to 58 catches, a league record through a half-dozen games. He’s also the first player in 57 years with at least 100 receiving yards in each of his club’s first six games.
