The New England Patriots are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. Two tough teams led by imposing coaches who have brought multiple Super Bowls to their respected cities. The Patriots have a record of 6-2 which is scary to think about considering that they have yet to play to their potential this season. Tom Brady is playing with a depleted receiving unit but Rob Gronkowski’s return from injury should help to greatly open up the offense.
New England has been one of the best running teams in the AFC which has been able to take some of the burden off Brady. The Patriots defense has also played much better than in years past and have played a large part in getting them to the position they are now.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have not been playing up to Mike Tomlin’s standards this season and are in last place in the AFC North having only won two games all season. When they travel to Foxborough the Steelers are hoping to steal a win on the road against an inconsistent Patriots team. Pittsburgh’s normally has one of the top defenses headed by the venerable Dick LeBeau but they have fallen off largely due to the lack of young talent to replace former players.
As a result of Pittsburgh Steelers are having a down year this season they help to contribute to this being the second least expensive Patriots game in Foxborough this season. Patriots Tickets are currently averaging $244 after falling 40% over the last week, $120 since on Monday alone. One reason for this fall in price could be a lot of tickets still left on the secondary market resulting from not as many people buying tickets for this game as previously thought. The Get in price for this game is only $85.
