New England Patriots upset the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night

For at least a night, the New England Patriots had naysayers on hush mode after marching into Acrisure Stadium and knocking off the Pittsburgh Steelers in a surprising upset win.

The 21-18 victory came on a night when the Patriots were as limited as they’ve ever been at the skilled positions. There was no Rhamondre Stevenson, no DeVante Parker, no Kayshon Boutte in this matchup.

But it didn’t matter.

The Patriots rallied around quarterback Bailey Zappe and put together their best performance since the win over the Buffalo Bills back in October.

With the win, New England improved to 3-10 this season and put an end to its five-game losing streak. Here are the studs and duds from the game:
