WPRI/WNAC – If anyone knows how to turn the page after a loss like the one they suffered in Miami, it’s the New England Patriots. They’re putting all of their focus towards Pittsburgh as they head into the final three games of the regular season. The Patriots dominate the Steelers rivalry, winning the last five meetings between the two teams. Tom Brady is 11-2 against the Steelers in his career.

Thanks to the Houston Texans also losing in week fourteen, the Patriots still hang on to the number two seed in the AFC. If the Patriots are able to win out, they will likely clinch a first round bye. New England has never reached the Big Game with out a first round bye.
