Road trips end badly for Packers, Steelers — AP Analysis

The Falcons beat up on the Green Bay Packers Sunday and then the Patriots did the same against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night.

Safety Mike Mitchell wrapped him up, but just got pushed backward. There's a draft, there's free agency, so this will not be the same team. We've kinda had this family building together since April, May, and now it will never be the same again.

"We didn't really anticipate it like that", Dupree said. "It's unfortunate that it became an issue in-game".

"I thought I could still fight through it", he said. The officiating crew did rule that Brady fumbled, but they gave the ball back to the Patriots. If there's going to be any silver lining, it's that. "I felt like I was holding the team back". "It's about everybody fighting hard to the finish and I think that's what we were able to do". If we do go man, that means our pressure has got to hit home.

Not to be the guy who complains about game-day inactives but I'd have dressed Demarcus Ayers over Sammie Coates at this point. Tomorrow's not promised to any of us. "Tomorrow isn't promised. Just to make the playoffs isn't enough".

This after all the New England defensive players heard about all week was that they hadn't faced a real National Football League quarterback in a couple of months.

What is Bell Let's Talk Day?
Lambton College is doing its part to join in on the mental health conversation. Her research has looked into the stigma surrounding mental illness.

"We always talk about swarming, getting to the ball and not leaving a teammate out to dry, " Harmon said. Why sit back in a zone and allow Tom Brady, perhaps the greatest quarterback in National Football League history, to pick your secondary apart? "The only thing that matters is Sunday, the Steelers and winning the game".

"I just took advantage of my opportunities", the mild-mannered Hogan said after the game. The Patriots played only three QBs from the top 15: No. 12 Ryan Tannehill of Miami, No. 14 Russell Wilson of Seattle and No. 15 Andy Dalton of Cincinnati. Was it too big? I went to school in Steelers Country over in Kent State.

Tomlin said the Steelers tried to blitz, but the efforts weren't effective. "Injuries and so forth are part of the game".

Wide receiver Chris Hogan shined especially bright in New England's win against the Steelers for the AFC Championship title game, setting a new receiving record of 180 yards in the Patriots post-season. He threw for 384 yards and three touchdowns on 32-of-42 passing. In the seven games between the teams since 2007, Brady has passed for 22 touchdowns and zero interceptions.

"Knock some of those passes down, that would have stopped some of that hurry-up", offense, cornerback Ross Cockrell said. Some showers and/or a light wintry mix is possible during the game or just after, but at this point, any precipitation looks light. "His experience and overall knowledge of the game and the position are a big help for us defensively". With one minute left in the second quarter, the Steelers were at the one-yard line and couldn't punch it in for a touchdown, settling for a field goal.

All of a sudden, Brady and the Patriots had found their rhythm. "He started calling a lot of checks (at the line of scrimmage)". "We needed the time to go through the process". "Ben's an incredible player", Brady said. And you saw yesterday Brady, it was like shooting fish in a barrel.
