The long wait is over and the 2019 regular season has arrived for the New England Patriots. The reigning world champions will kick off their quest to defend their title today when they welcome the Pittsburgh Steelers to town; an organization that has won a record six Super Bowls and that now has a collective front-row seat to see the Patriots unveil their very own championship banner number six.
