Since Bill Belichick and Tom Brady were introduced as the faces of the New England Patriots club in 2001, the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers have developed one of the NFL’s finest rivalries.
These clubs have played a lot of exciting games that fans won’t soon forget during the past nearly 20 years. Additionally, the Patriots have prevailed in each of their three meetings in the AFC Championship Game.
The Patriots defeated the top-seeded Steelers 24-17 at Heinz Field to advance to their first Super Bowl since 1996.
The highlights included Antwan Harris’ 49-yard blocked field goal return for a touchdown to bring the score to 21-3 and Troy Brown’s 55-yard punt return for a touchdown to start the scoring. In addition, Drew Bledsoe, who replaced the injured Tom Brady, completed a crucial touchdown pass.
In November 2010, the Patriots entered Heinz Field and won once more. Tom Brady threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns on 30 of his 43 attempts. He scored on the ground as well.
Five receptions for 72 yards and three touchdowns were recorded by Rob Gronkowski. To win by a score of 39-26 and go to 7-2, New England scored 29 points in the second half.
In 2013, the Patriots’ offense thrashed the Steelers at Gillette Stadium to defeat them 55-31.
Stevan Ridley ran for 115 yards and two additional touchdowns in addition to Tom Brady’s 432 yards and four touchdown passes.
Aaron Dobson recorded five receptions for 120 yards and two touchdowns, making it his greatest performance as a Patriot.
