The Pittsburgh Steelers look to knock reigning Super Bowl Champions, New England Patriots, off their throne this Thursday, 10 September at the Gillette Stadium. The traditional NFL opening ceremony is set to take place before the match for the 14th consecutive time. The Patriots hold a 3-1 advantage in postseason games, but the Steelers hold a 14-9 advantage in the regular season. Both teams are coming off defeats in their final preseason games. Offshore sports betting web sites predict an eventful game with the Patriots coming away with a narrow win.
For the Patriots, all eyes will be on returning star quarterback Tom Brady, who has the best record ever in season openers with a stunning 10-2. Brady missed the entire preseason after being suspended for 'Deflategate' but his suspension was overturned earlier this week and he'll be raring to go. The Patriots have a fully loaded offense with Rob Gronkowski, Jonas Gray and Julian Edelman, all looking good in preseason. The Patriots defense on the other hand, isn't the greatest but will be enough to handle the Steelers' offense.
The Steelers' offense performed exceptionally last season with Ben Roethlisberger throwing for nearly 5,000 yards and his wide receiver Antonio Brown ranking No. 1 in receiving yards. They have however lost All Star Pro Center Maurkice Pouncey to injury for most of the season, running back Le’Veon Bell and wideout Martavis Bryant are also missing they are serving bans for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. So the Steelers won't be at full strength and are likely to get pulled apart by Tom Brady's excellent passing.
Online sportsbooks feel the Patriots are in a pole position to win this game as they are in full strength and have been given a boost with the return of Brady. The Steelers will put up a fight but don't have enough in them to outlast the Patriots' impressive offense line.
The Steelers vs Patriots game will be an exciting one, possibly the most exciting NFL opener in years. Get is on the action with Mybookie online sportsbook.
