New England Patriots: 5 observations from stampede of the Steelers

Antonio Brown agrees to deal with Patriots just hours after Raiders finally had enough and released star WR

2019 Bills opponents: Patriots sign WR Antonio Brown

In addition, New England seems primed to capture its 11th straight AFC East division title and 16th in the last 17 years. It's a nice start for a player who last season was a flawless 21/21 from 20-39 yards, with just two misses from 40-49 yards during the regular season, while hitting 2/5 from 50+.

There's no doubt Antonio Brown understood the Patriots would be his next landing spot if the Raiders released him, which of course, they ultimately did. "We just played well across the board - on offense, defense and special teams - and just made plays in all three phases of the game", he said. His 10 targets were the most of any Steelers receiver, but he finished with three catches for 7 yards.

No receiver was particularly good against the Pats, but Moncrief takes the cake.

Coincidence or just good fortune?

If there was one thing we learned from the Steelers week one loss, it's that defensive coordinator, Keith Butler, had no answer for the Patriots offense. Tom Brady was constantly given the matchups he wanted, and players like Mark Barron and Kameron Kelly were picked on often.

Even 1st round picks Terrell Edmunds and Devin Bush were exposed in this game. Butler needs to make some adjustments quick, or he will be sitting firmly in the hot seat. I don't think that's going to be hard for him.

After a shaky preseason, which also included the transition to a new holder in new punter Jake Bailey, Gostkowski looked back to his old self Sunday night. Trailing 20-3, the Steelers appeared to be on the verge of getting back into the game after Washington got behind cornerback Jason McCourty and pulled away, putting the Steelers at New England's 18-yard line.

Brown's relationship with Ben Roethlisberger deteriorated significantly in his final days with the Steelers. However, losing by 30 points is something else entirely. The Patriots, unlike any other team in the league, have been able to take squeaky wheels and introduce them to the rarified grease of the New England system. Bill Belichick refused to answer any Brown questions, because the transaction couldn't be official until Monday.

"He's a great player, obviously everybody knows that", said Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
