Take your pick: Steelers or Patriots?

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

AFC North fans, we have a tough one for you.

In this week's version of "Take your pick," we ask ESPN.com readers who will win Sunday's important showdown between the Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) and New England Patriots (7-4) at Gillette Stadium.

Keep in mind, the Patriots have been the biggest thorn in the side of the Steelers in recent years. But also keep in mind that was with Tom Brady, who is now out for the year with a knee injury.

Will Brady's absence matter? Can new Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel light it up for the third consecutive week against the NFL's best defense in Pittsburgh?

Steelers-Patriots should be one of the best matchups of Week 13.

So take your pick.
