Super Bowl celebration, now the Patriots vs Steelers kicks off. Controversial quarterback Tom Brady will anchor the New England Patriots as they host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the opening game of the NFL 2015 season on Thursday, September 10, at 8:30 PM ET, at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.
The offseason Deflategate Saga is finally over for the New England Patriots after Brady won his case to vacate the four-game suspension imposed by the NFL. His four-game suspension was lifted by a federal judge on September 3. The superstar and probably the greatest of all time quarterback will be at the center of the offense of the Patriots. Millions of th New England fans are happy about the decision and that they will be able to see Brady on Thursday at Gillette Stadium and in their television screens.
”Everything that’s happened over the past seven months, obviously I have a lot of personal feelings, but I really don’t care to share many of those,” Brady said Sunday.
”I really care to think about what I need to do going forward. We’ve got a lot of guys in this locker room who worked really hard to get to this point, and so have I, and I’m excited to be able to go out there and do it.”
The New England Patriots are seeking to defend the Super Bowl title and that they want to prove something against the other 31 teams. The Patriots ended up in a 15-4 record and they won the Super Bowl last season. Brady will have his receivers intact: Rob Gronkowski (82 catches, 1,124 yards, 12 touchdowns) and Julian Edelman (92 receptions, 972 yards).
The Pittsburgh Steelers (11-6) are looking to be better this season and it would be interesting to see them measure up against the champs.
The Steelers will not have Le’Veon Bell, suspended for two games for a violation of the substance-abuse policy, who had 1,300 yards of rushing and 854 yards of receiving. In addition, Martavis Bryant will not also play for violating the substance-abuse policy. However, DeAngelo Williams will be the starting running back.
For the Steelers, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be at the center. Roethlisberger is seeking for another shot at the Super Bowl and this might be the year.
