Pats Pulpit Live: Week 15 Patriots at Steelers Preview

Hey Patriots Nation -- check out Brian Phillips' two-minute Pats Pulpit Live: Week 15 Patriots at Steelers preview!

Posted by Pats Pulpit: For New England Patriots News on Thursday, December 13, 2018

It’s Steelers week, ya’ll.

With both teams coming off of brutal week 14 losses, this Sunday’s match up carries all of the importance that we thought it would when the schedule was released earlier this year. The Patriots can wrap up the AFC East with a win and a Dolphins loss or tie, and keep possession of the AFC’s two seed. A Steelers win would keep them atop the AFC North, and would keep them from potentially joining the scrum for the sixth playoff spot in the conference.

A quick video preview breakdown:

  • The Patriots defense’s top priority hasn’t changed.
  • There has been a defensive scheme change in Pittsburgh.
  • A quick look at the world we all lived in the last time the Steelers topped the Patriots.

Thanks for following along, and — as always — be sure to tune in on Sunday after the game for the Pats Pulpit Live Postgame Show.
