Patriots at Steelers picks: Point spread, total, player props, trends for Week 2 AFC showdown

It’s been a minute since the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers have faced one another. You’d have to go back to the 2019 season to see these two storied NFL franchises go toe-to-toe and, boy, have things changed since then. 

Both clubs have since moved on from their future Hall of Fame quarterbacks with Tom Brady leaving New England in free agency back in 2020 and Ben Roethlisberger retiring last offseason. Now, these clubs are in a bit of a rebuilding situation with Mac Jones entering his second year for the Patriots, while the Steelers trot out Mitchell Trubisky as first-round rookie Kenny Pickett develops behind the scenes.

However, that victory came at a cost as star pass rusher and reigning Defensive Player of the Year T.J. Watt suffered a pectoral injury and is now on short-term IR. Second-year running back Najee Harris also suffered an injury in that win but looks like he’ll be fine to play in Week 2. That win over Cincinnati was largely sparked by Pittsburgh’s prowess on the defensive side of the ball as they gave quarterback Joe Burrow fits all afternoon, sacking him seven times and forcing him to commit five total turnovers. Even with Watt…
