2018 Steelers 17 vs Patriots 10

With their playoff hopes hanging by a thread, the Steelers suddenly find a running game behind rookie backup Jaylen Samuels, who surprises with a punishing 19-carry 142-yd performance, spearheading Pittsburgh's first win over New England in 7 years.

The Steelers also foil two perennial tormenters, limiting Gronkowski to only 2 catches for 21 yds, and forcing Tom Brady into a costly red zone INT by Joe Haden. Haden’s leaping INT at the Steeler 4 thwarted a potential go-ahead score and led to a critical 48-yd FG by the struggling Chris Boswell to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 17-10. Brady drives to the Steeler 11 in the final seconds, but the Patriots turn it over on downs after 3 straight incompletions and the Steelers live to fight another day.
