Patriots vs Steelers 2023 live stream: Time, TV schedule and how to watch online

After getting shut out at home by the Los Angeles Chargers, the New England Patriots embark on a trip to Pennsylvania for a head-to-head clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday.

It’ll be a primetime game featuring backups Bailey Zappe and Mitchell Trubisky as starters for different reasons. Trubisky got his opportunity with Kenny Pickett going down with an ankle injury, while Zappe is replacing a struggling Mac Jones.

The Steelers dropped their fifth loss of the season in shocking fashion to the Arizona Cardinals last week. That loss helped improve the Patriots’ position on the 2024 NFL draft board by moving them up to the No. 2 spot.

Meanwhile, the Patriots have lost their last five straight games, including Sunday’s 6-0 loss to the Chargers. It’s important to note that New England will be without running back Rhamondre Stevenson and wide receiver Demario Douglas for this game.

Here’s how to watch Thursday’s matchup:
