Steelers' Brown on social media while late to social media apology

Tom Brady on cover of Sports Illustrated

It's all come down to this in the AFC.

Blount played 11 games for the Steelers before the team cut him after he, upset about his playing time, walked off the field before a game had ended. CBS will have the national broadcast.

A win Sunday would give Belichick 7 conference titles as a head coach, the most in the NFL's Super Bowl era (post-1966). "For us to go there in a hostile environment and overcome that adversity against the Kansas City Chiefs, and win in the fashion that we did, is an awesome accomplishment by us and a great motivator and confidence builder for us as well".

New England won the AFC East, earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC Playoffs. They beat Houston 34-16 in the divisional round. They are tied with the Steelers and Denver Broncos with their eight AFC Championship Game victories. That seems like an unbreakable record.

The infected players certainly suffered setbacks in their preparation for the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, but there's no guarantee that they will still be sick during the game. New England played seven games against backs in the top 10 in the National Football League this season and none of them had a 100-yard rushing game.

There are no reports that the flu has infected Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger or wide receiver Antonio Brown. Tom Brady has thrown 756 completions out of 1221 attempts for a completion percentage of 61.9 percent and 6.8 yards per attempt.

According to a Thursday afternoon report from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, a 24-hour flu has found its way into the Pittsburgh Steelers' locker room. But either way, these are still mistakes, still issues, and something I fully expect New England to challenge Pittsburgh on Sunday night. This game's over/under comes in at a combined 50.5 points.

Backup quarterback Landry Jones was serviceable in just his third career start in Roethlisberger's absence.

Ryan's Falcons are slightly favored to gain their first Super Bowl appearance over Rodgers' Packers by virtue of their home field advantage.

"It's the two best teams in the AFC", Bill Belichick said Wednesday.

Bell later ripped off a 26-yard run to the goal line, helped by blocks from Marcus Gilbert and Alejandro Villanueva.

For this reason, it makes sense to go with the under. He has not attended a game in Foxboro since the Deflategate controversy began in 2015. This will limit turnovers and minimize offensive possessions for both teams.

The argument as to who is the best quarterback of all time is unsolvable and in the eye of the beholder. While both organizational cultures are strong, the Patriots' is based on precision while the Steelers' is based on emotion.

However, in each of the last two meetings, the Steelers have been without one of their best players.

It sounds counter intuitive for a team like New England, which hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher since November 2015, to not focus on the run yet the strategy isn't as far-fetched as it sounds.
