Cap off your Sunday with us

Sorry the thread is late, was too busy enjoying a victory. The Patriots host the Steelers on Sunday night. Former Steeler and Raider Antonio Brown will not be active, but supposedly just got to New England recently. Tom Brady will have Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman. You have to wonder if Rob Gronkowski comes out of retirement later in the year if New England makes a strong playoff push.

For the Steelers, they went last year without Le’Veon Bell, and now they’ll be without Brown. We’ll see if Juju Smith-Schuster can carry the load. He was primarily a slot receiver last season. Pittsburgh does have a rookie receiver Dionte Johnson that is intriguing, though undersized. This should be a fun game to watch, as these teams always seem to keep it close.
