Absolute domination by the New England Patriots on the night they received their 2018 Super Bowl Rings. The Pittsburgh Steelers were no match for them.
If there was any doubt the Patriots were still the team to beat, well, that was erased with their 33-3 victory on Sunday night. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was 24-36 for 341-yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Patriots rushed for 99-yards as a team but did it as a team. If there was one disappointment it was running back Sony Michel. He had just 14-yards on 15 carries.
The Patriots defense only forced one turnover, an interception of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger but they kept them off the field. They forced the Steelers into 3-12 on 3rd down conversions.
Now the Patriots get a breather if you want to call it that. They head to Miami in week 2 to beat, sorry, play the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
