The Steelers will kick off the regular season this Thursday against the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. The Steelers have the good fortune to go up against Tom Brady, fresh from his overturned suspension, with an undoubtedly large chip on his shoulder from having to battle the NFL all spring and summer long.

The Steelers actually lead the historical series against the Patriots, 14-9. The Patriots won the last meeting of the two teams, 55-31 in New England in November of 2013. Here’s hoping it won’t be that brutal on Thursday night for the Steelers.
