The Steelers, on the other hand, are coming off a dramatic 23-20 overtime triumph over Joe Burrow and the Bengals, the reigning AFC champs.
The Pittsburgh defense stymied Burrow all day, forcing him to turn the ball over five times. However, the offense’s dismal performance, led by new starter Mitch Trubisky, allowed the Bengals to win in the final seconds.
Burrow connected with Ja’Marr Chase for a touchdown as the clock struck zeroes, but Minkah Fitzpatrick blocked the next extra-point try, sending the game to overtime. After a few more missed kicks in overtime, Chris Boswell converted on a 53-yard field goal to give the Steelers a surprising victory.
However, it came at a cost, as Pittsburgh’s standout linebacker T.J. Watt suffered a pectoral injury that will keep him out indefinitely.
Will the Steelers add to the Patriots’ woes by going 2-0 this season? Or will Bill Belichick and his team be able to leave Pittsburgh with a significant victory in Week 2?

Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to complete the task, but Pittsburgh finally got the desired result this past Sunday with a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. The squad scored 17 points in the first half and coasted to victory. Pittsburgh had no great offensive performers, but they did get touchdowns from FS Minkah Fitzpatrick and RB Najee Harris.
The Steelers special teams scored 11 points. K Chris Boswell made three field goals, the longest of which was a 53-yarder in overtime that proved decisive in the game.
New England’s loss dropped them to 0-1 while Pittsburgh’s win moved them to 1-0. Because Pittsburgh forced 5 turnovers against Cincinnati, New England will need to be extremely careful with the ball.
