Live Blog: NFL Week 1 Thursday Night Football - Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the 2015 NFL Regular season! It has finally arrived. I don't even care that it arrives with the cheating New England Patriots and their cheating quarterback Tom Brady. It's football, baby! Besides, this year, they won't cheat as much because cheating is becoming a headache for them. Rest assured, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be taking steps to keep the cheating Patriots from cheating against them in this match-up. We should get a good clean football game with little to no cheating at all from the Robert Kraft cheating Patriots organization.

Okay, now that I've gotten that rant out of the way. Let's talk match-ups that do not involved the Patriots cheating to gain a competitive advantage. Tom Brady has been absolutely atrocious in the preseason and here's to hoping he continues that trend all season long. He won't, but I do think it will take a few weeks for him to find a groove again.

On the other side, Ben Roethlisberger has a plethora of weapons at his disposal and I think the Steelers actually have the advantage right now in this game. The distractions have had to have had a negative effect on the Patriots preparation in the week or two leading up to this game. It's going to be a close home defeat tonight for the Patriots.

Prediction: Steelers 27, Patriots 20

Who do you have winning tonight's game?
