3 big storylines in Steelers vs. Patriots

NFL Championship Game Odds and Trends Tomlin vs Belichick

The Patriots beat the Steelers 27-16 in the regular season, but Roethlisberger missed the game with an injury.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie cornerback Artie Burns and rookie safety Sean Davis know they likely will be marked men when they take the field Sunday against the New England Patriots.

This game will feature the two best coaches in the AFC, but guys who are very different in their philosophies as far as coaching goes.

Over the course of the last two seasons Goodell has predictably become person non grata in New England, spawning a level of unified hatred that exceeds any actual sports rivalry that exists among the Boston pro sports teams.

If the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots both win on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady would meet in the Super Bowl for the first time. And if their teams are going to the Super Bowl, they will lead the way. Instead of hearing their coaches' strategy, they heard the Patriots' broadcast.

The Chargers leave San Diego for LA Um, welcome back?
For now, the Rams have a one year head start, but a year of bad football under Jeff Fisher didn't exactly win hearts and minds. On Sundays, for more than two decades, we were allowed to watch the two best telecasts the league had to offer.

'Anne Frank link' unearthed at Sobibor camp
Frank tragically died in 1945 at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp just before the Allied liberation. The pendant has the words "Mazal Tov" written in Hebrew on one side, along with Cohn's date of birth.

Pittsburgh's defense allowed just 100.0 yards per game on the ground (13) and 242.6 yards via the air (16). In the overall series between these two teams, Pittsburgh has won 15 of 29 games, but just 1 of 3 in the playoffs. Don't hesitate to jump in on the live updates and chat with us as the game rolls along.

This could be another high-scoring game, with players such as Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams causing problems for a pair of defenses that are not all that special. We're going to need the offense to score points, possess the ball, keep Tom Brady off the field.

"The Patriots will get the job done this weekend in their record sixth consecutive AFC championship game appearance", said Sen. These quarterbacks will pass for 350 yards each, probably push for 400 yards.

"The experience is what I expected; to play in big games, meaningful games", Mitchell said.

Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell made 81 yards on 21 carries against New England earlier this year. Belichick will make sure his team shows up ready to play better football this Sunday. When that offense is clicking, the opponent is so exhausted by the end that they eventually lose the game going away. Have thoughts on how the Patriots and Steelers are performing? And their Super Bowl odds have gradually risen. While Bell has caught everyone's attention with his postseason rushing, the Steelers' running back has been remotely quiet in the passing game.
