NFL Regular Season Kickoff Thread: Steelers vs. Patriots

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

How many "deflategate" references are we going to get during the game? I think the actual number will be low, although the phrase will run rampant on pre-game shows and on social media. I'd love to see one of the Patriots act like they are sticking a needle in the air hole of the football after they score a touchdown.

This is a great match-up for the season opener, but I think the changes Pittsburgh will face defensively, coupled with missing their center for half the season, will prevent them from competing with the powerhouse Patriots. Patriots 31, Steelers 20

Browns fans should use this open thread to discuss the game. Standard open thread rules apply.
