Flashback: Steelers Haunt Brady and Pats 25-17 in 2011 Matchup

New England Patriots v Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers of 2011 were a good team, one that went 12-4, yet in the end were upset by Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos in a crazy wild card game in Denver in the first weekend of the playoffs.

They did have some high points in the season, and today we look back at one of those, a win in October against Tom Brady and the Patriots at home.

Today we look at the game story that fateful Sunday afternoon from Steelers Gab – reliving one of the best wins of the 2011 season.

Enjoy!

They have exercised the demons.

For now at least.

A day before the 7th anniversary of the 2004 Halloween white wash of the New England Patriots, the Steelers Sunday flexed some muscle on both sides of the ball, finally stopping Tom Brady and New England in a hard fought 25-17 win.

The victory puts the Steelers at 6-2, still 1/2 game up on the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North. They also are the first AFC team with six wins. The Patriots fall to 5-2 and in a first place tie with the Buffalo Bills, who shutout the Washington Redskins in Toronto.

The Steelers dominated the game, much like the October 31st 2004 game in which they stopped the Patriots NFL record 21-game winning streak by winning 34-20.

This win was more impressive, as it came with the Steelers missing a number of key players, including James Harrison, James Farrior, and during the game they lost LB LaMarr Woodley, who had two sacks of Brady.

Ben Roethlisberger was 36-for-50 for 365 yards with two touchdowns and a pick that at the time allowed the Pats to get back in the game. They got to him during the game, as Roethlisberger was sacked five times.
