Super Bowl 51: Patriots and Falcons look to light up the Houston night

Super Bowl 51: Patriots and Falcons look to light up the Houston night

The Patriots and Falcons will do battle in Super Bowl 51. Well, no one saw the Atlanta Falcons rolling their way through the NFC into the Super Bowl, but that is what happened. The same team that absolutely dismantled the Arizona Cardinals in the regular season 38-19, destroyed the Green Bay Packers, in a game that was far too like last years NFC Championship Game, 44-21 over the Green Bay Packers. In the AFC Championship Game, the New England Patriots had little trouble with the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning going away 36-17. The early line for the game has the Patriots as a field goal...

Super Bowl LI is Falcons vs. Patriots

Super Bowl LI is Falcons vs. Patriots

The matchup for Super Bowl LI is set. The Atlanta Falcons will take on the New England Patriots. Today was a letdown if you did not have a team in the running. It was a bad day of football with a pair of noncompetitive games. The Falcons crushed the Packers in Atlanta 44-21. In the nightcap, the Patriots blew out the Steelers in Foxborough 36-17. From a Jets perspective, this Super Bowl isn’t pretty. Obviously any Patriots Super Bowl is not going to be a pleasant one. On the other side, you have a Falcons team coached by Dan Quinn. Quinn interviewed and was considered for the Jets head...

Patriots dominate Steelers again 36-17 en route to Super Bowl 51

Patriots dominate Steelers again 36-17 en route to Super Bowl 51

The Pittsburgh Steelers were hopeful to extend their winning streak, until they were dominated by the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. The Pittsburgh Steelers had waited a long time for a chance to play the New England Patriots in the playoffs. The last time the black and gold faced Tom Brady and the boys was in 2004, Ben Roethlisberger’s rookie season, and they beat the top-seeded Steelers to advance to the Super Bowl. This game was in Foxorough, and the Patriots won the opening coin toss and elected to receive the football. They wasted little time putting points on the board as...

Patriots-Steelers final score: Tom Brady dominates to set up Super Bowl 51 matchup with Falcons

Super Bowl 51 will be a battle of the likely 49ers head coach, and one of the finalists. The New England Patriots capped a day of home team dominance, and will not head to Houston to face the Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots won the AFC Championship Game, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 36-17. The Patriots and Falcons victories mean Super Bowl 51 will feature plenty of meaning for San Francisco 49ers fan. The offensive coordinators for both teams were finalists for the 49ers head coach job. Josh McDaniels withdrew his name from consideration this past Monday, and all...

AFC Championship Game: Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots - Live Blog

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots are just one game away from Super Bowl LI. Earlier in the season, the New England Patriots beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-16 on the road, but they did that without Ben Roethlisberger playing in that game. LeGarrette Blount rushed for 127 yards and two touchdowns, while Le’Veon Bell was contained rather well. That is an outcome I would expect to change some in this game. With Big Ben, the Patriots will be forced to play the pass more, which will open things up for Bell in the run game. Still, it is unlikely the Steelers will be able to...

Impending free agents from Championship Sunday Buffalo Bills should consider

Impending free agents from Championship Sunday Buffalo Bills should consider

A few players on the field today should warrant consideration from the Bills in free agency. Today, four teams with a lot of talents will play to represent their conference in the Super Bowl. During the AFC and NFC title games, keep an eye on the following impending free agents whom the Buffalo Bills could consider signing this offseason. New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd The Bills have been in desperate need of a big-boded, jump-ball possession receiver for what seems like forever. Floyd is 6’3”, 220-plus pounds and undoubtedly knows how to use his large frame to shield smaller...
Report: Jets Hire Veteran Defensive Line Coach Robert Nunn

Report: Jets Hire Veteran Defensive Line Coach Robert Nunn

The Jets have reportedly made another hire on their coaching staff. Source tells @sn_nfl that @nyjets have hired former @Browns defensive line coach Robert Nunn for the same position.— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) January 20, 2017 Nunn worked on Hue Jackson’s staff in Cleveland in 2016 but was let go after the season. Before Cleveland, he worked under Tom Coughlin as Giants defensive line coach from 2010 through 2015, which included a Super Bowl title in 2011 to coincide with Jason Pierre-Paul’s breakout year. Prior to that, Nunn had stops in Green Bay, Tampa Bay, Miami, and...

New Buffalo Bills stadium not in immediate plans

The Falcons are saying goodbye to their home today. The Bills are at least a few years away from that point. Despite talk about stadiums from around the league and around the city, nothing is fazing Buffalo Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula. In their much-discussed interview with Tim Graham of The Buffalo News earlier this month, the subject of the team’s stadium situation was broached. Mr. Pegula, noting that the lease on the newly-renamed New Era Field runs through 2023, said that they “haven’t given it much thought.” Mrs. Pegula followed up by saying, “I don't think we have...

Fire alarm being pulled at Steelers hotel does nothing to silence stigma around the Patriots and their fans

Fire alarm being pulled at Steelers hotel does nothing to silence stigma around the Patriots and their fans

The Patriots have a bad reputation in the NFL for pushing the boundaries of legal and illegal, and their fan base clearly followed their lead on Saturday night. Just think about it for a second. Spygate. Deflategate. Issues with communication systems. The list goes on, but these are the major infractions which the New England Patriots have been accused, and in some cases proven guilty, of in the past. Combine these accusations with the consistent winning of Bill Belichick and company, and you have yourself an ‘Evil Empire’. It was the reason why most NFL fans weren’t upset with Mike...

How the Patriots used underneath routes to consistently beat the Steelers in Week 7

How the Patriots used underneath routes to consistently beat the Steelers in Week 7

The New England Patriots’ offense has been consistently effective against nearly every team they have faced for more than a decade, and it’s because they are better than anyone else at finding and exploiting their opponents’ biggest weaknesses. At least, this time around, the Steelers aren’t going to get “Gronked”. New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski has been much more than a simple thorn in the Steelers’ side since he came into the league. Despite the defense holding him in check for the first half of the two teams’ Week-7 matchup, it was two long completions to...

Outlining just how different the Steelers and Patriots are since their Week 7 matchup

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots game is a rematch of their Week 7 game at Heinz Field, but there are a lot of differences between then and now. We take a look at those differences. The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing to play their third playoff game, and it is their third rematch of the postseason. In the Wild Card round they sought revenge on the Miami Dolphins, and did. In the Divisional round they were out to prove their Week 4 win was no fluke, and did. Now they seek revenge again, but this time against the New England Patriots.

Sad News About Mark Gastineau

Former Jets defensive lineman Mark Gastineau revealed this week that he is battling multiple health issues. “When my results came back, I had dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s,” the former Jets defensive lineman said on WOR Thursday evening. “Those were three things that I have.” Gastineau said he received the diagnoses roughly a year ago and traced his illnesses back to football. Gastineau played with the Jets from 1979 through 1988 as part of the fabled New York Sack Exchange. He made the Pro Bowl five times and was the UPI Defensive Player of the Year in 1984. That was...
