Good afternoon, Patriots fans. I'm heading to Foxboro to brave the New England winter weather (if there is any). Yes, I'll make that sacrifice for the rest of us. That means you all need to talk it up here in the open thread.
Terry McAulay is today's head referee. The Patriots have had a different officiating crew for every game this season, but McAulay did work Pittsburgh's 21-0 win over Seattle in Week 5.

New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Enjoy the game, and Go PATRIOTS!!
