Last Week's Rank: 2
Record: 5 - 2
This Week: L @ Steelers, 17-25
Up Next: vs. Giants, 4:15 Sunday
Trending: Neutral

The Patriots took their second loss of the season to the more physical and just plain better Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pats weren't out coached, it's just that the Steelers had better players and more team speed. Pittsburgh played more man than the Pats had seen all year and their playmakers couldn't make plays. The Pats are going to play a rematch of their Super Bowl loss to the Giants this Sunday. Bill Belichick doesn't lose twice in a row, but there's a first time for everything. Watch the Giants steal one.—Richard Boadu
