AFC championship game: Pittsburgh Steelers v New England Patriots

Super Bowl 51 When is It How to Get Tickets and More

It was like I was running 50 percent out there.

"I don't think I need to speak much", Roethlisberger answered when asked what he'd say to Edelman.

Statistically, New England has the edge, perhaps more so on defense, but the Steelers' D has coalesced well in the second half and played formidably ever since.

The Steelers would add a touchdown of their own in the second quarter, but miss the extra point. DeAngelo Williams replaced him. In two games, he's thrown for 730 yards and seven touchdowns with no interceptions.

LeGarrette Blount, who rushed for 18 touchdowns during the regular season, pounded home from the 1 with 2:44 to go in the third to pump the Patriots' lead to 27-9. Not to mention the stellar play from Marcus Gilbert who fought through an ankle injury earlier this season, but remains a big part of one of the best offensive line units in the NFL. According to STATS, Inc., the Falcons had were the first team in National Football League history to have 10 players with two or more touchdown receptions in a season. "It's a big challenge for us".

New Gambian President Barrow Says Wants UK as 'Number One' Partner
New Gambian President Adama Barrow confirmed on Friday evening via his Twitter account that Jammeh agreed to leave. If the regional force is going to arrest Jammeh, it will have to be there, the official said.

No one else got hurt. When held below 60 rushing yards this season, the Steelers were 0-3. However, I did pick the Steelers for a win in Kansas City, while Jazz took the Chiefs. There was a dropped pass in the end zone and two failures inside the New England 10-yard line that kept points off the scoreboard.

I really believed the NFC and AFC Championship Games would be closer - especially given the quality of the four quarterbacks. And whichever other receivers play - Malcom Mitchell, Danny Amendola or Michael Floyd - Brady will find them. The Patriots can't afford to put the ball on the ground and risk a turnover against a Pittsburgh team extremely capable of making them pay.

The weaknesses that had disappeared for most of the second half of the season, - open-field tackling, closing up the line of scrimmage, a lack of experienced wide receivers beyond Antonio Brown, Roethlisberger's inconsistent passing and defending tight ends - all came back at almost the worst possible time. Then, on fourth down, Hamilton could not come down with a fade pass. "We had opportunities to make plays in that game". "They're to be complimented for that. That's why we're here", Brady said at the trophy presentation as he gestured toward his teammates. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick head into their seventh Super Bowl looking for win number five.

The Steelers have no players or coaches with Utah ties, in contrast to six years ago when BYU alumni Brett Keisel and Chris Hoke and Utah products Chris Kemoeatu and Stevenson Sylvester accompanied them to the Super Bowl.
