<><>The 12-0 undefeated Patriots, with the NFL's top ranked offense play host to the 9-3 Steelers with the league's top ranked defense in what is sure to be the most heavily watched game of the season, especially after this past Monday night's game. With all the controversy lately surrounding these two teams, nothing would surprise me during this game. First off we have the Steelers who despite their wins have only won against 2 teams with winning records,the Browns (beat em twice) and the Seahawks. I'm afraid I have to mention the losses as well against the Jets, Cardinals and Broncos whose records are not exactly..stellar. (I'm working on being kind) 
 

Then we have the undefeated Patriots coming off two close games against the Eagles and the Ravens, trying to keep their undefeated season intact and a win on Sunday gives them a first round bye in the playoffs. (If the Colts also happen to lose against Baltimore Sunday, Pats clinch homefield as well)

<>It's pretty obvious to this Patriot fan that the Pats need to stop the run, and also pretty obvious that the key for the Steelers is to pound the run. Willie Parker will have his day. The Steelers are going to need all their players to attempt a win against the Pats and the latest news is that Santonio Holmes and Troy Polamalu both are going to try to practice tomorrow.

<> Some quick thoughts and stats for you guys. Can the Steelers offense score enough points? Ben Roethlisberger's first two losses as an NFL starting QB came at the hands of the Patriots. Pittsburgh has the edge in time of possession(34.41). New England has won 10 out of its last 11 games in December. This will be the first day game for the Pats in over a month. Willie Parker only had 87 yards against the Bengals, 81 against Miami, and 52 against the Jets.  The Steelers ended the 21 game winning streak for the Pats, and the Pats ended the 15 game winning streak of the Steelers. So..Who Ya Got?!
