An Early Christmas Miracle; Steelers Top Brady and the Patriots 17-10, Three Takeaways

For the first time (in a long time) the ball finally bounced the Steelers way against their all-time biggest arch rival, Tom Brady.

The outcome was one that was sorely needed, to say the least, for the Steelers, as their defense stepped up with stops on the final drive, and the black and gold finally ended their painful three-game losing streak with a 17-10 win over New England at a frantic Heinz Field.

The win moves the team one step closer to the AFC North title, as they sit at 8-5-1, but still have work to do as the Ravens with their win over Tampa Bay Sunday sit at 8-6.

The Ravens still have the Chargers on the road and the Browns at home, while the Steelers play at New Orleans and at home in the final week against the Bengals.

No matter, this was a win that was so badly needed, it felt like forever since the Steelers beat the Pats, and after last seasons’ awful ending to the same type of game, it was a welcome sight to see them hang on for the win.

Here’s a few takeaways from the victory, one that Steelers fans have waited a long time for.

    A great long overdue win against Brady and the Patriots but at the end of the day the Steelers defense was still gashed at times and other times looked totally confused . With the the next two against Drew Brees in New Orleans and the Bengais at home , neither game is a gimme for the Steelers . In the end the Steelers will go as far as as their offense can take them . The defense , now that is another story .
