Mark Madden: Maybe Antonio Brown isn't good for Steelers' business

Brown is a great receiver. Do you need him to win a Super Bowl? It sure doesn’t look like it. Brown has been in the NFL seven years and has no rings.

Pittsburgh Steelers take to social media to thank fans for a tremendous 2016 season

The Steelers took to social media after their loss to the Patriots to celebrate their successes for the 2016 season. The Pittsburgh Steelers season didn’t end the way everyone wanted. They fell one game short of the Super Bowl and, after the game, current and former players took to social media to thank fans, celebrate a good season and state their overall appreciation. Although the team didn’t win the Super Bowl, it didn’t diminish their ability to look back and take some positives from a season when the team came back from 4-5, won the AFC North and made it to the AFC Championship...

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...

A quick look at scenarios that will lead to either the Steelers or Patriots in the Super Bowl The chance to compete for the ultimate prize in the NFL hinges on the outcome of a game in Foxboro, Massachusetts, Sunday evening. The home team has been a roadblock for the Steelers’ Super Bowl aspirations for all of Ben Roethlisberger’s professional career, and the Steelers have never won the AFC Championship game by beating the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

For the Steelers, it comes down to playing the team that they haven't been able to vanquish to make it to the Super Bowl. In my opinion, they need to win a playoff game against Brady and company to cement their legacy, but would you want it any other way?

A tale of two franchises: 3 Keys to Victory in Steelers vs. Patriots AFC Championship game

Pittsburgh and New England bring sharply contrasting approaches to the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots are two of the most successful franchises in NFL history, with a total of 10 Super Bowl trophies between them. But in terms of their approaches to the game, there hardly could be a greater divergence between these teams and their respective organizations.

Alejandro Villanueva‘s growth key to Steelers’ offensive line dominance

Alejandro Villanueva‘s growth key to Steelers’ offensive line dominance

The Steelers no longer have a glaring weakness on their offensive line, and ‘Big Al’ is one of the main reasons why. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If that chain were the Steelers offensive line, I think most would agree the weakest link would be left tackle Alejandro Villanueva. That wouldn’t necessarily be a knock on ‘Big Al’ because the unit boasts two All-Pro’s in center Markice Pouncey and right guard David Decastro. Right tackle Marcus Gilbert is widely considered at least a Pro Bowl-quality player. Left guard Ramon Foster is an 8-year veteran, playing the...

NFC, AFC championship game picks and predictions: Whole lot of Patriots

The 2017 conference championship games are almost upon us. Here is a look at some of the picks from around the media, including my own. The 2017 NFC and AFC title games take place this Sunday, and we have four great quarterbacks squaring off for a chance to advance to Super Bowl 51. Sunday afternoon at 12:05 p.m. PT, Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. That is followed by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots hosting Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC conference championship game, with kick off set for 3:40 p.m. PT. The...

2017 AFC Championship Game Patriots vs Steelers: Tedy Bruschi will serve as honorary captain

2017 AFC Championship Game Patriots vs Steelers: Tedy Bruschi will serve as honorary captain

New England is 8-0 when honoring the franchise great. He played 211 games for the New England Patriots, helped the team win three Super Bowl titles and is a member of the franchise’s Hall of Fame. He also knows a thing or two about the AFC Championship Game, having appeared in six of them. Therefore, Tedy Bruschi is a logical choice to serve as honorary captain for Sunday’s game when New England hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers for the right to play in Super Bowl LI. Earlier today, the Patriots announced Bruschi serving in that capacity. Team owner Robert Kraft had to say the following...

A roster rundown leading up to Sunday’s AFC title game. Three months removed from a 27-16 win at Heinz Field, the New England Patriots are set to revisit the Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium. A Super Bowl bid is forthcoming. And several familiar faces will be revisiting their former team in the process of it, as the two sides of the AFC Championship Game include four ex-Patriots and one ex-Steeler.

We have reached the final four in the 2016 NFL season.

Atlanta and Green Bay kick off the action at 3:00 p.m. Eastern on FOX. It should be a shootout.

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...

It was apparently too much to hope the Steelers could take out the top seed Patriots and prevent another trip to the Super Bowl. A close game early turned into a blowout with the Patriots leading 33-9 by the end of the third quarter. From there it was a slow march to the inevitable. In the NFC Championship game, it was the Falcons high-powered offense that ended the Packers’ late winning streak behind Matt Ryan who was on fire, throwing for 392 yards with 5 touchdowns (4 passing, 1 rushing) and Julio Jones’s 9 catches for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns. This one was over early, with the...
