The Patriots are sporting the worst record in the AFC and will start Bailey Zappe for a second straight game after getting shut out at home by the Chargers. New England will likely be without Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) for multiple weeks. 

The Steelers are starting Mitchell Trubisky with Kenny Pickett (ankle) unable to play. Luke Faulkner has been promoted to interim offensive coordinator for Pittsburgh following the team’s dismissal of Matt Canada.
