Gillette Stadium To Host Patriots-Steelers Duel In Opening Game
Now we know for sure that Ben Roethlisberger and his team will be headed to Foxborough for a game against their traditional opponents on September 10 at the Gillette stadium. This is one of the most anticipated matches of the upcoming season. In fact, the duel seems to be the perfect way to commence the 2015 season. All football fans will now be anxiously waiting for the game to start in September.
However, despite the hype and the excitement that will follow this game, it seems both sides will definitely be reeling from the losses of their best running backs.
On the New England Patriots side, we have running back LeGarrette Blount missing this important game because he faces a one game suspension for violating the substance-abuse policy of the league. On the other hand, Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell faces a three-game suspension. These setbacks are likely to hit the Steelers a bit more as Bell is probably the best running back in the NFL. So these two running backs won’t be in the Gillette stadium where fans would have loved to watch them.
The Patriots being well ahead of the Steelers since 2004 with a lead of 5-3 well be looking forward to another victory. However, Roethlisberger will be equally excited about the opening match and looking for revenge as his side suffered a defeat the last time they met the Patriots in 2013.
Things won’t be the same for Patriots this time as they are without Darrelle Revis, their key DB. To make matters complicated for the Patriots, Ben will still be there who comes off from a season where he had 32 touchdowns and 4,952 passing yards.
The opener is also expected to bring back the memories of the 2002 season. This was the time when the Patriots came from their first Super Bowl championship to welcome the Steelers and hand them a 30-14 defeat. Now we have Tom Brady vs. Ben Roethlisberger – the two leading and successful quarterbacks of the NFL, facing each other.
The Patriots-Steelers game will be a must watch game. It is a high intensity game that is sure to attract a lot of attention. This game will be a treat watch.
