The Pittsburgh Steelers found themselves in a must win situation at the very wrong time. Set to face New England after dropping three straight, the Steelers needed to put their best game together and they did just that.
The Steelers season quickly spiraled out of control. Instead of sitting at 10-2-1 they blew away leads in three games and found themselves at 7-5-1 up against New England.
The team would be without James Conner for the second straight week but it did not seem to phase them. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley prepared to share the role of running back but it was Samuels who stepped up huge.
The offense went right down the field and scored on the Steelers first drive. New England put up a huge 63-yard touchdown on a busted coverage and shortly after, Antonio Brown caught his thirteenth touchdown.
No one would find the endzone again as the two traded field goals late in the game. The defense put together one of its best performances in recent memory and the Steelers finally slayed the giant that is the New England Patriots.
