Live Blogging On Shish On Football: AFC Championship Game: Pittsburgh Steelers At New England Patriots
Hello and welcome to a special edition of 'Live Blogging On Shish On Football'. Tonight it is the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots. This is a rematch of a regular season matchup in Week 7. In week 7, the Patriots defeated the Steelers 27-16, at Heinz Field. The Steelers were without Ben Roethlisberger.
For the visiting Steelers, they are hoping to overcome being dominated by Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Tom Brady is 9-2 all-time vs. Steelers. The Steelers are hoping to have their big three (Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown) running on all cylinders. While the Patriots are hoping to slow down the Steelers Offense, with the league's stingiest scoring defense (15.6 PPG).
As for the Patriots offense, they are hoping that they can shake off their rust from last week vs. Texans. They will go up against a Steelers Defense who is not exactly the Steel Curtain of the 70's, nor Blitzburgh of the 90's and 2000's, but it has only yielded 20.4 PPG.
It is the Steelers and Patriots, coming up soon.
