The New England Patriots' played a thrilling and highly entertaining game against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. And as usual, the Patriots' camera crews were on sight to capture the sights and sounds of the contest. Take a look at them below:

The video, which probably used a little too much of the snow globe effect, starts with the players' pregame huddles: As usual Matthew Slater leads the one with offensive skill position players, Rob Gronkowski with the tight ends and newly elected Pro Bowl fullback James Develin. Devin McCourty is the ringleader for the secondary and Trey Flowers, in his return from injury, does the same for the front seven.
The next part of the clip focuses on the game itself, including some soundbites from offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia: “If we can stay ahead on down and distance and not have to play from second and long, we'll be alright,” Scarnecchia told his unit at one point – emphasizing an area the team had problems in one week earlier against the Miami Dolphins.
Also part of the video is first year tight ends coach Nick Caley talking to his unit – including Rob Gronkowski, who set a new career high with 168 receiving yards – as well as the sideline emotions prior New England's game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter.
