Ben Roethlisberger passed for 365 yards and two touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers finally found a way to beat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 25-17 on Sunday.

When did Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger become a dinker and dunker? … and links!

If I had to sum up the Patriots defensive game plan, it was to try to make Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to force the deep ball. They often doubled speed receivers like Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders, essentially taking away the deep ball. Pittsburgh had just two plays longer than 20 yards in the 25-17 win over the Pats. And, history shoes, Roethlisberger will still try to get...

Secondary of Patriots no match for Steelers

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger picked apart an already picked-on Patriots defense in a dismantling victory at Heinz Field.

Film Breakdown Shows Tom Brady Was Thrown Off By Steelers' Man Coverage, Disguised Blitz Schemes

The Steelers broke out a new game plan to stop Tom Brady and the Patriots' offense, and they executed it as well as any defense has against New England in quite some time. It was so effective that the Patriots are going to have to prove they can defeat similar schemes in the coming weeks because Pittsburgh's defensive looks will surely be replicated by the Patriots' future...

Patriots' Defense Due to Improve Against Weak Opponents, But Real Solutions Will Be Hard to Find

In 2007, the Patriots had the best offense in the history of football, but it wasn't enough to win the Super Bowl. They've since maintained an incredibly potent offense while mixing in a suspect defense, and the result has been zero postseason victories for three seasons. After Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers tore apart the Patriots for the bulk of Sunday afternoon, concerns...

Big Ben Tops Tom Brady as Steelers Roll

Tom Brady has made a career out of owning the Pittsburgh Steelers. On Sunday, the Steelers finally got some revenge. While holding Brady in check and getting a great performance out of Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers won by a final score of 25-17. Roethlisberger finished 36-for-50 for 365 passing yards and two touchdowns. On the other side of the field, Brady was 24-for-35 for 198...

2011 New England Patriots: Trick or Treat?

We have just about completed eight weeks of the regular season, passed the Patriots’ bye week, and I think we can honestly say that we’re not sure exactly what we have in this team. Are they a Super Bowl team? A playoff team? The Pittsburgh Steelers exposed weaknesses on both sides of the ball, especially on the defense. The aggressive man-to-man, blitzing defense slowed down...

Patriots run up big numbers on ground, too

The Steelers have been recognized for years as a franchise that takes great pride in the running game; the Patriots have been defined in their modern era as a passing powerhouse directed by future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady. So, what to make of the fact that the Patriots are on track to rank higher than the Steelers in rushing yards per game for the fourth consecutive season?

The final word on The Toronto series for 2011

I know the agreement is up next year, but this deal isn't going anywhere. I know some fans would love it to, but for the Bills to get almost double on their return for a home game, something will be worked out. Yes, it will probably be for a lower number than last time around, but I think this is the norm. Sure, it may change after Ralph Wilson dies, but as I've written before...

Big Blue looks to spring Steel trap in Foxborough

NY Giants barely beat Miami Dolphins, must play better against New England Patriots York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin will need a better performance from his team next Sunday against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.By Gary Myers - NY Dailynews 10/31/11

Monday Morning Hangover: Don’t Look Back

If you’re a Giant fan, you can’t be feeling very bold this morning after barely getting past the 0-7 Dolphins. With a killer schedule directly ahead and many issues still plaguing them – such as the running game and the rush defense – it seems unreasonable that they will get through November with a winning record. But they probably will. This league is just going that way...
