Edelman, Patriots wary of Steelers' big-play Brown

FAMILIAR FACES: The Steelers and Patriots have won seven of the past 12 AFC championships yet they've only met once in the playoffs during that span, with each club seeming to peak when the other is just a little bit off.

When the New England Patriots go into Heinz Field on Sunday, many will see what was once a very challenging game as a much more manageable game for the Patriots.

Clearly, the biggest loss will be that of Ben Roethlisberger by far, although it should not be underestimated how much the Steelers will miss DeAngelo Williams against the Patriots.

Your turn Landry Jones, who jokingly told his teammates "don't panic" after Roethlisberger underwent outpatient surgery to fix the knee on Monday. 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.

"I'm not sure what he was thinking", DeCastro, who could have been called for holding, told The Post-Gazette. "We have to build Landry up". And the Steelers defense is better than it showed in last Sunday's loss to Miami. The former Oklahoma Sooner has started two games, completing 32 of 55 passes (58.2%), for 513 yards, with three touchdowns and four interceptions. However, the Steelers organization is confident the injury will not have long-term implications and opens the door for an eventual return this season. Butler's first game as defensive coordinator was against Brady and the Patriots and it did not go well. The spread also suggests that the Patriots are the favorites to win the contest. Their 56-19 record (.747 winning percentage) at Heinz Field trails only the Patriots (67-9, .882) and Packers (58-16, .780) in that span.

"Guys come up with a game plan to stop AB and when you're not sound enough, he destroys you", Shazier said. The Patriots' pass rush has been inconsistent, at best. Just because the Steelers are over Blount's exit doesn't mean the city is, particularly one that doesn't take rejection well.

The Steelers take on the Patriots on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. EDT. Cam Hayward is a great player, Mike Mitchell's a great player; they've got some veteran players, but it feels like it's always kind of the same Steeler defense. Suh eventually does drag down Roethlisberger, but only after the QB unloads an incompletion toward Le'Veon Bell. Since returning from a three-game suspension, Bell is averaging a league-leading 146.7 yards from scrimmage per game.

But Bell thrived. And he should do so in this game.

With Ben Roethlisberger sidelined due to injury, Landry Jones will make his third career start under center. "For me, I'm more of a quick-decision maker". Only a handful of quarterbacks with 50+ pass attempts were worse: Johnny Manziel, Jimmy Clausen, Nick Foles, Andrew Luck, Ryan Mallett, and T.J. Yates.

Pittsburgh hosts the New England Patirots in Week 7.

Roethlisberger had arthroscopic surgery Monday to fix a meniscus in his other knee, an injury not related to this play in question. Defensively, the Steelers are yielding 20.5 points and 394.8 total yards (293.7 in passing and 101.2 in rushing) per game against the opposing teams.
