This past Sunday’s Steelers/Patriots game was an instant classic. It easily could have gone either way, with the AFC heavyweights exchanging blows in the final minutes. The deciding factor was a Ben Roethlisberger interception in the end zone, following a controversial call that overturned what would have been a go-ahead touchdown for Pittsburgh tight end Jesse James.
Roethlisberger and his longtime counterpart Tom Brady finished with nearly identical stat lines. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 passes for 281 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Brady completed 22 of 35 passes for 298 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. They were each sacked two times.
Following the game, Brady—who many believe is still in contention for this year’s MVP award—was pumped. He was so pumped, in fact, that he let Pittsburgh’s fans at Heinz Field hear it. There is certainly no love lost between these two teams.
As you’ll see in the below video, Brady pumped his fists and yelled, "How ’bout that? Let’s go! Let’s go!"

Brady also had some fun with the fans when he entered the field and heard a chorus of boos.
With the win, New England clinched the AFC East, mathematically eliminating the upstart Bills. The Steelers and Patriots are now both 11-3, and the final two weeks will decide which team gets home-field advantage if they are to meet in the AFC title game—a matchup that would certainly be a treat for football fans.
