It will be argued until the day we die whether or not the Patriots cheat and to what degree. It is said "if you're not cheating you're not trying", and I love winners who take every advantage but I hate cheaters! They say that every team engages in attempts to gain the upper hand on the opponent and that lines are often crossed but there are just too many instances where players have said that "the Patriots seem to know exactly what we are doing". So, assuming the Patriots have pushed the envelop more than everyone else, who has been most effected by it? You could say that the teams in their division who play them twice every year, but those teams couldn't have beaten the Patriots even if they cheated and the Patriots didn't. You could look at the games between Brady and Manning but there were only a few. Look at how many times the Steelers either lost home field advantage to the Patriots or lost a playoff game to the Patriots during the period in question. I can't think of another team who had as many seasons directly impacted by the Patriots as the Steelers had?
