Their Own Super Bowl LIII banner will be unveiled by the New England Patriots when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event.
This is exactly what to expect…
Pittsburgh (9-6-1 last season) are considered a stable franchise. They stick together with their trainers (Mike Tomlin is entering his 13th season), draft well and do not generally make huge splashes in free agency and the transaction industry.
When Le’Veon Bell decided to sit out a year for more cash, and Antonio Brown argued with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, jumped clinics and was benched in Week 17 last year, the Steelers thankfully moved – although each player is regarded as one of the very best at their positions.
What comes once they barely missed the playoffs last season?
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s Patriots (11-5) won the Super Bowl, but potential Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski retired, they’re without center David Andrews indefinitely after he was diagnosed with blood clots, and they needed to place first-round broad receiver N’Keal Harry on Injured Reserve.
It is that the Patriots. Brady and Belichick and rosters obtained their very first of six Super Bowl wins because a duo in 2001, and were enjoying each season. They have to be thought of favorites for another year.
After the departures of both Bell and Brown, expect seasons from James Conner – who stepped in and handled 973 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in his first season as starter – and JuJu Smith-Schuster, who’s in line for a massive bump.
Already with Brown Smith-Schuster handled 1,426 yards 111 catches and seven TDs. All those numbers might go up. Or we could see how significant Brown was actually taking attention.
With Gronkowski projected starter Matt LaCosse restricted in practice and gone, can Ryan Izzo be the best tight end in Week One of New England? He did not find the area (he had been on IR) after being drafted in the seventh round a year, however, Brady might be forced to look his way.
Then there’s the Josh Gordon, who has missed the majority of his profession due to drug-related suspensions. It’s been a very long time because he had one of the best receiving seasons in history in 2013 (87-1,646-9 in just 14 games for Cleveland).
After missing a year to time, he’s reinstated, back and also good to go. At 28he should be entering his athletic prime as a recipient, but does he measure up and become a top goal that is trusted for Brady?
They looked rusty, when the Patriots dropped two of the first three games last season. In these games, they grew up 894 yards and just managed 511 of the very own. How fast can Pittsburgh begin?
The Steelers were the last team to beat New England (a 17-10 win at Heinz Field in Week 15) therefore they’re certainly built to battle the champs, however they will need to get themselves on top right from the opening kickoff.
In that game, Pittsburgh beginning running Jaylen Samuels managed 142 yards, although Sony Michel was confined to just 59. If the Steelers create long drives to keep the ball from the hands of Brady and then will control the ball, it will work in their favour.
