    WK11: Patriots (27) at Steelers (21)

    Not Brady but Patriots Defense seals the win vs Steelers in Final moments.

    Heinz Field

    The Patriots entered this game with no Frank Gore in the backfield who is out for the remainder of the season to return in the playoffs but that was the least of the Patriots worries. Patriots very sluggish on offense the past couple games have just been playing smart at the end of games. Steelers open their first drive with a pick by Darius Butler as Collins attempted to throw in double coverage. Patriots would not capitalize on that and settled for a FG. Steelers who had a gameplan and stuck with it move the ball very well vs the Patriots defense and Collins was very poised in the pocket under the Patriots various blitz schemes. Steelers would take the lead in the first quarter on a Blakely TD catch. The Patriots responded as Bush would add two running scores to his total to help the Patriots build a 17-7 lead. Collins would tap another score on from the Steelers as Sweed broke a Butler tackle to take it to the house 17-14. Collins would try to add another score before the half but was intercepted in the endzone by Devon Kelly. Patriots would add a field goal and Michael Bush 3rd TD on the day to take a 27-14 lead going into the 4th quarter. Collins later would connect with Sweed again to draw the Steelers within 6 pts and a shot to take the lead. Steelers would make the stop on defense and rely on a steady offense to come thru in the clutch. Collins driving the offense all the way into the Patriots redzone looking to score until Wesley Woodyard would pick off an errant pass to seal the game 27-21.


    GG Savante - Steelers young corners did a good job containing the deep ball on Moss there was a lot of bumping and grinding going on out there. If it wasn't for the Patriots defense taking 14 pts off the board for the Steelers it would have been there first lost. Next up for the Patriots a trip to South Beach and the Dolphins.
