The New England Patriots have been deemed the Empire of the NFL. They’ve dominated the AFC so far with a 14-2 record.
Whether they are good or evil has yet to be determined considering past accusations. But that’s nothing to get deflate- I mean defeated about.
But there is one team out there that can challenge them: The Pittsburgh Steelers!
And the Pittsburgh Post- Gazette dubbed the Patriots as the Evil Empire on its cover. The cover also features a football shaped Death Star and a Millennium Falcon with the Steelers logo on it.
Take a look!
