Thoughts Following the Patriots Win Over the Steelers

After a season opener which posted a three-year high on Thursday night, ratings for heavyweight Sunday night clash between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers were down a little.

There was Patriots owner Robert Kraft gleefully informing NBC's "Sunday Night Football" broadcaster Al Michaels that quarterback Tom Brady told him he was "a million percent in" on the team bringing Brown aboard.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown #84 of the Oakland Raiders reacts on the sidelines during the first half of the National Football League preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on August 15, 2019 in Glendale, Arizona. Trailing 20-3, the Steelers appeared to be on the verge of getting back into the game after Washington got behind cornerback Jason McCourty and pulled away, putting the Steelers at New England's 18-yard line.

New England, which agreed to a one-year deal with Brown after he was released by Oakland, has reportedly added an option year to the deal. It's a nice start for a player who last season was a flawless 21/21 from 20-39 yards, with just two misses from 40-49 yards during the regular season, while hitting 2/5 from 50+. The Patriots system is about value, and more than ever before, Brown has to show his, right now.

To think, the New England Patriots looked this good this early without Antonio Brown, Demaryius Thomas, N'Keal Harry and Kyle Van Noy.

There was no sign of him at the stadium. He was out there all training camp and came up with two huge plays tonight,"Brady said".

Chester Williams health: Rugby legend dies - what are the heart attack symptoms?
He scored four tries against Western Samoa in the quarter-finals before tasting glory in the final win over New Zealand. Williams played 27 times for the Springboks, making his debut as a winger in 1993.

Either way, credit McCourty for shaking it off because he came back and made a terrific play on the next snap against Donte Moncrief and it didn't affect him the rest of the game.

Don't worry, Ben Roethlisberger is sick of it too. That's why some transactions are labeled as a player being waived, and other transactions are labeled as a player being released.

Although the pass rush wasn't particularly disruptive, the Patriots played terrific run defense holding the Steelers to 2.2 yards per rush in the first half, before the game got out of hand. Coach Mike Tomlin admitted the team wasn't ready for primetime, but why does this keep happening?

Steelers: Host the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday. I just want this transition for him to be really smooth.

What did Bill Belichick think of his team's performance?

Most of Pittsburgh's big passing plays came in garbage time and against competitive coverage with the Pats secondary going without any big busts or letdowns in the backend.
