Steelers beat Patriots: My first hundred (or so) words

Today's win means the Steelers have started 6-2 in all five seasons that Mike Tomlin has been their coach.

That's the biggest thing to take from this win, right? Otherwise pretty ho-hum, no?

Oooooh, yeah. There is this small matter of beating the Patriots. Not only beating the Patriots, but beating Tom Brady for the first time in six years, 364 days.

So Troy Polamalu got away with batting the ball into the end zone to give the Steelers a safety and secure the win. Has anyone ever heard of Spygate?

LaMarr Woodley haunted Brady on Halloween Eve with two sacks before going out with a hamstring injury. On the surface, it doesn't seem like anything serious, but those hamstring injuries can linger. We'll have to keep an eye on that.

Let's keep this victory in perspective. It's only one win. If the Steelers beat the Patriots January, then we can say for sure that Brady no longer owns them.
