It was a different world the last time Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley faced the New England Patriots. He already had two sacks, and was chasing quarterback Tom Brady down for what could have been his third when he pulled up with a hamstring injury.

Woodley hasn't really been the same player since. He's playing at a decent level so far this season, and has stayed injury-free, but that game, played in Week 8 of the 2011 season, he completely dominated.

Will this be his breakout game?

Kickoff is at 4:25 p.m. ET from Foxborough, Mass. The Patriots are seven-point favorites, but the Steelers have the ability to play with a New England team that hasn't flat-out dominated teams the way they have in the past.

As always, please keep the comments centered on the game, disagree all you'd like, but please don't resort to personal attacks.

Enjoy it, and stick around, postgame analysis and Winners and Losers will follow immediately after the game.
