On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers defence will have a slightly different appearance.

Steelers will be without their star pass defender T.J. Watt, who last Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals suffered a partially torn pec.

He's scheduled to miss a few games, but there's a chance he'll play again in October or November.

The Steelers' subsequent opponent, the Patriots, pits them against Bill Belichick.

When questioned about the Watt injury, Belichick said that he didn't believe it would significantly alter their approach.

Malik Reed will start in Watt's place for the Steelers. He will start opposite the other outside linebacker for the Steelers, Alex Highsmith.

The Steelers will want to match their performance from last Sunday in this game. The defence caused five turnovers and sacked Joe Burrow seven times in that game against the Bengals.

After falling to the Dolphins 20-7 on Sunday, the Patriots will be trying to score more than seven points this week.

At 1 p.m. ET, the game will kick off at Acrisure Stadium.
