Reeling Steelers bracing for brilliant Brady

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - If the Pittsburgh Steelers want to turn their season around, they're going to have to do it against an old nemesis.

The Steelers (2-5) visit New England on Sunday to face the Patriots and star quarterback Tom Brady. The veteran is 6-2 against Pittsburgh in his career and has never lost to the Steelers at home.

Pittsburgh is changing up its defense in hopes of getting more pressure on Brady. Coach Mike Tomlin demoted rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones to the second string after Jones missed several assignments in last week's 21-18 loss to Oakland.

Steelers safety Ryan Clark says while Brady isn't putting up eye-popping numbers anymore, it doesn't matter because New England is 6-2. Clark added Pittsburgh needs to disrupt Brady's timing to pull off the upset.
