Blount, Patriots pull away from Steelers 27-16

"You can't waste redzone trips, you have to come off blocks and make tackles in the run game, you can't give up explosion plays, we did", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.

But the New England Patriots' 27-16 victory over the Big Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh wasn't exactly worthy of the next Gerber commercial.

The kicker would miss wide right again with just over nine minutes remaining, that time on a 54-yard boot which would have made it a one possession game. Sure, they need to clean it up, but if you can find much negative in this, there's a career waiting for you in the field of campaign attack ads. "I felt like after that it was nearly the wind got pushed out of us". In doing so, Tom Brady ran his record to 9-2 against the Steelers and the Patriots maintained their top spot in the AFC. On the flip side, Le'Veon Bell owners should thank the fantasy gods, right now, as Bell averaged over 100 yards per game previous year in the five games Roethlisberger missed and, most likely, the team will replicate that same style offense in the wake of their star quarterback's 2016 injury. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can.

As for the defense, Lawrence Timmons had a big day, recording 11 solo tackles. A few other players who are dealing with less severe injuries have a chance to get healthier as well. Between Tomlin bellyaching previous year about his headset going haywire in Foxboro, Ben Roethlisberger claiming the Pats defensive linemen were moving too much and his defensive coordinator saying the Patriots cheat, it couldn't happen to a nicer coach. His 566 yards now place him fifth in the league, above notable players such as Todd Gurley, CJ Anderson, and Devonta Freeman.

"I went out today...and I went through some individual work". They did a great job limiting him on the ground. He dropped a third-down pass that would have extended a drive, then carelessly failed to touch down a Ryan Allen punt at the 6-yard line, with the ball bouncing into the end zone. They'll have a chance to get healthy with a bye week coming up before visiting struggling rival Baltimore on November 6.

Obviously, had Ben Roethlisberger been the quarterback on all three of those series, Pittsburgh may have walked away with as many as 21 points.

NYPD admits 'we failed' in police shooting of mentally ill Bronx woman
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. called the killing "an outrage" and questioned why the officer did not deploy a stun gun. Earlier, New York police Commissioner James O'Neill said his department "failed" by not using means other than deadly force.

Add in the fact that since his return, Brady has climbed to the top of the NFL's leaderboards in terms of accuracy, yards per attempt, TDs-to-INTs and passer rating, and the end result is an offense that's going to be monumentally hard for opponents to stop, so long as the chief actors remain healthy.

"It's going to always be good to get your players back", Bell said. The issues stopping the run are new for the Steelers, and that has to partly fall on the coaching.

When asked if any former Steelers teammates had choice words for him on the field, Blount simply said, "We're on to Buffalo". Jones and Co. continued with their onslaught of jabs and body shots and appeared to tie the game with another 14-yard touchdown catch by Heyward-Bey.

- There is no one who's more excited about having Brady back than Julian Edelman. "We have a lot of bodies dinged up". "They certainly made it tough on us". "I guess the team that wins the division goes to the playoffs but after that loss I can't really think about that".

Johnson's release will most likely place him back on the practice squad. Well, nothing technically but what Tom Hanks' character compared life to, Martellus Bennett compared the New England Patriots' offense to instead.
