New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

Recommended Posts

4:25 ST,,...Jim Nantz, 'MotorMouth Tony' Romo and Tracy Wolfson on CBS

Mid 30s and cold in Heinz Field in Pittsburgh...over-under at 53.5

 

Grandpa superstar 'Shady' Tom Brady (324 of 481, 3,865 yards, 27 TDs.  6 INTs) heads into a pivotal game in the AFC with 'Outlaw' Rob Gronkowski (55 catches, 849 yards) back off suspension.

NE has only 1,500 rushing yards but look for them to try to bust up the injury depleted Steelers at the line of scrimmage before he lights up the perennially soft Pittsburgh secondary.

 

The Pittsburgh law firm of 'Ben Brown and Bell' will be looking to impeach New England s defense with an all-out assault.

Big Ben Rothlisberger (318 of 502, 3.744 yards, 24 TDs and 13 INTs). who threw for 500 yards last week,  has to get the ball to WR Antonio Brown (99 catches, 1,509 yards) but he also has to spare 20 carries for LeVeon Bell (283 carries, 1,105 yards)

;

New England (10-3) has to win to be the top seed in the AFC. Pitt (11-2) clinches the top spot with a win.

Jacksonville (9-4) mathematically could catch NE but nobody takes Jacksonville seriously when it comes to winning the AFC.

 

Pittsburgh was eliminated fromt eh post-season by New England last year and this is the rematch. I don't think they match up.

The Steelers cant rush Brady hard enough and they don't have the man-to-man coverage boys

I'd take NE and the under..Steelers come up weak in the game of the week

Game of the year right here, who ever wins will probably get HFA throughout. Man I hate both of these teams. These 2 teams have prevented the Colts from many more SB appearances in our Indianapolis history. I am still mad about 1995 losing to Pitt in that AFC Title Game - that was Harbaugh's year. The Patriots were Peyton's biggest rival and I am just tired of them winning every year. Luck would've been in the SB (2014) had it not been for them as well. I want Pitt to win but I don't see it. I see a high scoring game here where Pitt hangs tough but I say the Pats win 34-27.

Steelers have to play some defense they have not shown this year

No Shazir now either. I would be surprised if they hold the Pats under 30 after the Pats losing last week and Gronk is back.

Patriots win 34-31, or the game gets away from the Steelers with the Pats winning 41-27.

 

If the Steelers win, they have to keep the score below 30, IMO, something like 27-24 and I do not see that happening with that Steelers' D.

I'm hoping Pittsburgh wins this game. because I'm tired of the Patriots always having #1 seed. Besides, I like watching Le'Veon Bell  and Antonio Brown play, unless they're facing the Colts.

Steelers will be like "OMG it's the Patriots, quick, let's forget everything we know about football and shrivel up!"

 

Plus, I have Big Ben and Bell today in my fantasy team, if I win, I go to the Super Bowl, but I'm sure the Patriots will make both of them look like 5th stringers.

 

Patriots win this game without having to lay a finger on it.

and if the pats lose and the jags win out. Then the jags would be the second seed possibly.

I was thinking the same thing. That would be so funny.

NO.

 

Steelers get the ball first.

 

Game over.

 

Patriots win.

 

The Patriots will stop the Steelers on their opening drive, storm down the field for an easy TD, and take control and the crowd out of this game.

 

Not to mention, the Patriots will score to end the 1st half, score to start the 2nd half, and put this game away by then.

 

#1 seed race over.

 

Thanks for a wonderful season.

Steelers being exposed as frauds on national TV.


Why was this game even hyped in the first place? Everyone pretty much knew the outcome.

Yeah, this game is going exactly as I predicted in this topic.

 

Time for Pittsburgh to punt after 3 plays and then for Brady to blow down the field and turn this game into a rout.

I see this is going to be spammed by the same rubbish as every Patriots' game thread.

 

 

There's a little "X" in the upper right hand corner.. or if your a MAC user, a red dot on the upper left hand corner :thmup:

Just like last year, one of the best players on the Steelers gets injured against the Patriots (Bell in the AFCCG, now Brown).


Who could've thought?

So Brown will probably be done for the season. The Steelers are also going to be done moving the ball for the night.

 

And with that, Brady will blow down the field for an easy TD coming up.

    • Revis was quite good, fantastic at his best.  Yet I've watched others that I rate above Revis-   Champ Bailey - 12 Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 52 career interceptions, four returned for touchdowns   Mel Renfro - 10 Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro one time, 52 career interceptions   Darrell Green - seven Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro one time, Recorded 54 career interceptions   Aeneas Williams - eight Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 55 career interceptions   Mel Blount - five Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro two times, 57 career interceptions   Charles Woodson - nine Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 65 career interceptions (tied for fifth all-time) and returned 11 of those for touchdowns (tied for second all-time)   Mike Haynes - nine Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro two times, 46 career interceptions   Rod  Woodson - 11 Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro six times, 71 career interceptions, which ranks No. 3 on the all-time list   Deion Sanders - eight Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro six times, 53 career interceptions and returned nine of those for touchdowns, which ranks tied for fourth all-time   I might eventually even put Richard Sherman above him too. Richard Sherman - four Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro three times, 30 career interceptions thus far.   Darrelle Revis -  seven Pro Bowls, First Team All-Pro four times, 29 career interceptions   I think Revis eventually gets into HOF, but his lack of INT's will possibly delay it to 2nd or 3rd ballot.  
    • Mathias Farley, and probably T.J. Green. 
    • Again, I’ll start by saying I agree the AFCS wasn’t strong from 2012-14. That said, aside from the Pats, only 1 team in the AFCE had a winning record during that time-the Bills went 9-7 in 14. The best finish aside from that was 8-8. Neither division was strong and the Pats were a better team than the Colts over that span.   Point is, a weak division isn’t the main argument against a team being good or bad. Based on roster, Luck leading the Colts to multiple playoff wins in that period speaks to his potential. We’ll see how he looks this year. I’m cautiously optimistic. 
    • Yeah, justice system isn’t exactly a strong point in this country
