NFL: Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers know all too well what the New England Patriots can do. Ben Roethlisberger, in particular, knows what it’s like going up against Tom Brady. Roethlisberger has only beaten Brady once, in 2004, but never in the playoffs and never at Gillette Stadium.

While many, including Las Vegas, view this game as the Patriots’ to win or lose, the Steelers possess a team who certainly can go into Foxborough and win. Behind the force that is the Steelers’ offensive line, Le’Veon Bell, Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown have thrived. In addition to a lethal offense, Pittsburgh’s defense has become equally impressive behind the likes of James Harrison, Bud Dupree and a trio of rookies who have made significant strides during the course of the season.

While you prepare for the big game Sunday, get all the information you’ll need right here...
