BOSTON (CBS) – The 98.5 The Sports Hub, WBZ-TV and WBZ NewsRadio1030 sports teams make their predictions for Sunday’s Patriots-Steelers matchup at Gillette Stadium.

I think this is going to be a dogfight and a battle.

It should be a back and forth seesaw type game throughout, but the Patriots will come out on top.

The Steelers don’t have what it takes anymore.

They can’t block for Ben Rothelisberger. Defensively they’ll try to blitz, and I’m sure they’ll try to turn it into a rock fight, but it won’t be enough.

The Pats are playing with fire. These slow starts are freaky and last week against Miami was a close one. That can’t happen against a veteran team.

The Steelers and the Pats are at crossroads. New England is rebuilding it’s offense and the Steelers have gotten old. These teams still have respect for each other as champions, but right now the Pats are just better.

Plus, a win going into the break is everything the Pats want to do. I expect their offense to catch some fire and they win this game going away.

Patriots 30, Steelers 17

Tune in to Patriots-Steelers Sunday afternoon on WBZ-TV and 98.5 The Sports Hub — the flagship stations of the New England Patriots.
