NFL Week 7 – Patriots vs. Steelers

In Week 7 of the NFL season, the New England Patriots will travel to Heinz Field to play the Steelers in an AFC conference showdown. Many NFL fans thought this Week 7 matchup could potentially give them a glimpse of the AFC Conference Championship game.

However, Steelers starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recently injured his knee in a game against the Dolphins. This injury has set back Big Ben a few weeks and many experts believe that he won’t be back until after the Steelers Week 8 bye.

With Tom Brady returning to the Patriots, the team has become the odds on favorite to win the AFC Championship. Initially, with Big Ben playing, some sports bettors thought that the Steelers could potentially be 1 point favorites against the Patriots.

With Landry Jones getting the starting nod, the Patriots have been deemed 7 point favorites on the road against Pittsburgh.
