New England Patriots
The Pittsburgh Steelers came into New England desperately needing the win, while the Patriots were simply looking for some consistency after several games of struggling to put together a full 60 minutes of play. Pittsburgh has clearly struggled in all aspects of the game, with their 30th ranked running game facing the 31st ranked defense of the Patriots.Ben Roethlisberger's throwing woes are nearly as famous as Tom Brady's, as both quarterbacks have struggled to find any rhythm with their receivers. We have never seen Brady so shaky in his throwing, and Roethlisberger hasn't had the protection he needs to set and throw the football.And here is what we learned from this Week 9 battle:1. When the Patriots run the ball effectively, they win.Stevan Ridley is a fiercesome runner and he has a way of finding the endzone. And he is complemented by Brandon Bolden and LeGarrette Blount, both of whom can pound out yards in relief of Ridley. This has become a potent combination of r...

Tom Brady is a legend folks, he shook off the inconsistency of his first eight games, threw for season-highs of 432 yards and four touchdowns and led New England to a 55-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. “You throw it, they catch it, they run with it,” he said. “It makes a good day […]
FOXBORO, Ma—4 touchdowns and 432 yards later the talks of Tom Brady being “hurt” and “getting old” have quieted down. This coming against the Steelers secondary that is usually stout giving up the 4th least amount of passing yards on average this year. Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, and Aaron Dobson combined for 4 touchdown receptions […]
On Sunday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had one of the best games of his career. After throwing an 81-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Dobson, Brady was all smiles and made this hilarious face when he gave Legarrette Blount a high-five. I’m guessing he was extra excited that he wasn’t ignored this time by his teammate when he went up for a high-five. The Patriots...
Ben Roethlisberger and the 2-5 Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Gillette Stadium to take on Tom Brady and the 6-2 New England Patriots at 4:25 p.m. ET...
You can make a case that Ben should be on the losers list, but you have to believe he was a huge reason why the Steelers were in the game, at one point. Roethlisberger made a couple of very good touchdown passes. He finished the game with four tossing scores. Ben also finished the game with 400 passing yards. Big Ben also turned the football over three...

While there was uncertainty at the beginning of the 2013 season as to what type of team the Pittsburgh Steelers would field, predicting a 2-5 record after seven games seemed to be as unlikely as the Steelers going 19-0 and winning their seventh Super Bowl title.
What seemed improbable during the offseason is now a bitter realty as the Steelers travel to Foxborough...
Troy Polamalu is one of the best safeties in the NFL and makes more game-changing plays than most defensive backs. He’s exciting, instinctive, and a hard hitter. Remember this play he made against Jake Locker earlier in the season? That was beautiful. But, as we’ve shown in the past, he can get lost in pass […]
New England was treated to a great game today! Finally the offense explodes, something Patriots fans have waited weeks and months for to happen. But the Patriots are scoring where they need it most, in the second half of games.
Take into account last week against Miami and again tonight against Pittsburgh. New England was behind 17-3 going into the locker room before erupting for...
For the first time since the Tampa Bay game in Week 2, I watched the Patriots play a game where I had almost no doubt in my mind that, barring a miracle, we would win the game. When Pittsburgh reeled off 14 straight points in the third quarter I was a bit on edge, but Tom Brady and the offense took care of that in a hurry. HOWEVER, let's not jump on the idea that the ship has...
Here is the initial analysis of the Patriots victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 55 to 31.
This was a vintage Patriots win, for better and worse.
We'll start with the worse. The Patriots defense was inconsistent in the second half. When the Patriots couldn't get pressure without a blitz, the secondary suffered, as Ben and his receivers basically...

After going through some very-well documented struggles through the first half of the season, Tom Brady and the offense dropped 55 points on the hated Pittsburgh Steelers for a big win.
The numbers were staggering across the board. The Patriots rolled up 610 yards on the toothless Steeler defense, with Tom Brady going 23-33 for 432 yards, 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. Rob Gronkowski...
Jim Wexell explains why he's not expecting any changes now, but ponders whether a rejuvenated Kevin Colbert would trade Ben Roethlisberger and start over like it's 2000 again.
Move over Tom Brady, David Ortiz is the king of Boston for the time being.
It’s quite fitting that “Started From The Bottom” was the song of choice, since the Red Sox were in dead last place just a season ago and now they’re on top.
You got to be happy for the city of Boston after what they’ve been through.
