The New England Patriots are coming off their most humiliating defeat of this NFL expert pick season.

The Patriots were outscored 34-14 in their upset loss against the Cleveland Browns.

New England’s rushing attack was completely shut down, totaling 68 yards and no touchdowns. Starting running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis attained just 14 yards on 9 carries, and Danny Woodhead accumulated 54 yards on the same number of attempts.

Things will only get tougher this weekend against the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s defense ranks first overall against the run, surrendering just 58.3 rushing yards per game.

Pittsburgh has also given up just 3 rushing touchdowns all NFL expert pick season.

The Steel Curtain defense has allowed the third-fewest passing touchdowns in the NFL, with 8, while amassing 11 interceptions.

This NFL expert pick Sunday will be another week that Head Coach Bill Belichick and his New England Patriots would like to forget.

Marcelo’s Prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers: 27, New England Patriots: 16

Messina Mention: New England is 2-2 in away matches this season, scoring just 14 points in each of those games.

NFL Expert Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers (-4.5).
