A Super Bowl would have been the only positive conclusion to the Steelers 2016 season

Despite coming within two games of a Super Bowl victory, the Steelers 2016 season just didn’t seem satisfactory to the fans.

As the women say, I had “the feels” about the 2016 Steelers from right around the start of training camp, all the way...

Patriots’ favorite defensive personnel packages during the playoffs show Trey Flowers, Elandon Roberts on the rise

The two young defenders have played big roles during the playoffs. The New England Patriots’ defense was on the field for 187 snaps during the team’s 2016 playoff run. The unit played 69 snaps apiece against both the Houston Texans and the Pittsburgh Steelers, while seeing a lighter workload – 49 snaps – in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons. Of those 187 snaps, seven were nullified by penalties, leaving 180 to look at when outlining the team’s favorite personnel packages.
