The hated New England Patriots are coming to town for a Week 10 meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both teams sit at 6-2 at the midway point of the year. Their records are tied for the top mark in not only the AFC, but all of football with the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, and New York Giants.

It's been nice basking in Monday night's victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, but being that it's Thursday, I suppose it's time to start looking ahead to Week 10 when the Steelers host the Patriots at Heinz Field in primetime on Sunday Night Football. It will be the first time Steeler Nation will have had the opportunity to cheer its team on at home in a month. The Steelers just completed a three-game road stretch, so you can count on the Terrible Towels to be out in full force Sunday night.

Let's get our preview coverage started with our weekly overview of the two teams' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
