The New England Patriots are 6-1 following a 27-16 decisive victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7. The Patriots ran away from the Ben Roethlisberger-less Steelers, as Tom Brady threw for 2 touchdowns to continue his fantastic start to the season.
Both franchise quarterbacks were itching to play against one another in the marquee afternoon matchup, but Roethlisberger’s previous knee injury rendered him to the sidelines.
The two were able to meet on the field during pregame warmups, however, and the exchange was caught by Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” program’s cameras.
“What’s up, buddy?” Roethlisberger says.
“How you doing, big guy? Good to see you, man,” Brady says to Roethlisberger.
“How are you, dude?” Roethlisberger asks. “I want to be out here against you so bad.”
“Vice versa, I feel the same way,” Brady says.
Next Roethlisberger says to Brady: “Hey, listen, I’ve never done this before but I would love to get a jersey at some point. It would mean … There’s not many that I want. I’m going to put it in my office. You’re the best, dude.”
Brady agrees to the exchange after the game, the two quarterbacks dap and walk away.
What a cool moment.
