Patriots vs. Steelers: Can Pittsburgh Finally Solve Tom Brady?

Including the playoffs, the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-2) have won 16 of the last 21 home games, outscoring opponents by an average of 12.3 points a game. 

The Steelers have won more Super Bowls than any other franchise in the NFL with six, including two with Big Ben Roethlisberger.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, one man has dominated them for nearly a decade.

This man is New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.

Bieber hair and Ugg boots aside, Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. There are many teams who haven't been able to stop him, but none as good as the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Even when the Steelers have great teams, they can't seem to beat the Patriots when Tom Brady is under center.

The last regular season victory the Steelers had over a Brady-led Patriots team was on Halloween night 2004, in Pittsburgh.

It was a huge win for the Steelers, snapping the Patriots 21-game winning streak. That success was short lived however, as the Patriots went on to blow the Steelers out later that year in the AFC title game.

Is it simply a bad matchup for the Steelers schematically, led by mastermind Bill Belichick?

Perhaps the Patriots filmed all of the Steelers practices?

I tend to think it's a combination of both, but now isn't the time for the Steelers to make excuses!

Read on to see how the Steelers can conquer Tom Brady and the evil empire on Halloween weekend!
