Steve Balestrieri takes a look at this weekend's match-ups and believes the Patriots receivers should have their way against Pittsburgh's secondary.

Current Patriots Twitter Feed:

Falcons offense has been held under 360 yards twice this year. In one of those two games, they scored 42 points. Good luck stopping them.

Hung today outside ESPN's NFL studio - as it should be.

RT @McClain_on_NFL: Because of the last four teams and their great QBs, Houston is going to have a great Super Bowl LI.

RT @jamescuff: Love @NFL Championship weekend. Even better when your team is playing. 💪🏻🏈🇺🇸 #DoYourJob #DoYourJob #DoYourJob…

RT @billbarnwell: What are the rules on putting a national anthem performer in the Hall of Fame?

RT @vxmcclure23: Believe that's the first drop for Taylor Gabriel this season

Lil' misty down here on field at @GilletteStadium, ...slight rain possibilities around 5 & 6 PM #Weatherman

The Packers are playing a lot of nickel ... Would expect Kyle Shanahan to run at it soon.

Asked @RealTroyBrown80 about playing WR with cracked ribs, re: Nelson. He said the biggest issue is having to rotate and reach for the ball.

@ChrisLaw The pace of traffic is more interesting to me. You'd think boulders were falling from the sky.

Calm before the storm. Might be some showers from 4-6 p.m. but expected to be clear w/ temps in low 40s at kickoff.

Wow ... Amazingly well-done, ESPN. I think every football fan my age sees Chris Berman and Tom Jackson as part of their childhood.

RT @PatriotsSB49: .@Dameshek Fake news, DD. Rule was instituted the year before Brady's injury. Be better. You work for the damn NFL, no ex…

@McMurph10 Good afternoon, Travis. That will be finalized around 5:10 p.m. Higher odds that it's Floyd.

@DOGBULL Good afternoon, Roger. On game days, the players park farther away from the stadium, so they cart them in.

    I lucked out and got a really good practice this year after missing out on seeing either Brady or Moss last season. As I result, I focused much more on offense (and Brady, Moss, Welker specifically) and neglected to get a good look at some of our youngsters. However, it was worth it. Seeing Brady & his receivers work is a thing of beauty. What Reiss says about Brady and his command or presence is 100% true.

    Also, I spent a great deal of time trying to snap some good shots w a new lens I got, so again, my reactions are going to be a little thin, but nonetheless, here they are...

    - Again, Brady just being there is pretty awesome. This will sound a little stalker-ish, but it was just nice hearing him bark out the pre-snap reads and such again.
    - Welker is ripped. Again, this may sound stalker-ish, but when he took his jersey off to sign autographs, I realized he's not as small as he looks on TV. He may look small in the middle of the field surrounding by linebackers, but don't feel sorry for little Wes, the guy is jacked.

    - Fred Taylor still has it. He had some slick moves in the 1 on 1 tackling drills and in the scrimmages.

    - On the opposite side of the field at one point, the QBs did some on the move throws. They'd move in the pocket and launch the ball down field. I hope anyone who is worried about Brady's mobility took a look. He's still slow, but he can still maneuver and he was gunning the ball downfield and accurately while on the move. This was the only time during the day in which O'Connell impressed.

    - As of yesterday, I will be shocked if Andrew Walter makes this team. I'd rather have Hoyer, though he didn't do much of anything. Walter didn't look so good, but maybe he'll get better.

    - Wheatley had the best tackle of any defender in the 1 on 1 tackling drills. Otherwise, the offense had its way. Moss makes it look easy.

    - Chung was pretty active - he broke up a deep pass to Moss...but it was admittedly blatant pass interference.

    - The Tight Ends didn't do much to stand out, but they all look big, fast & strong.

    - Galloway & Lewis look OK - Galloway had a nice catch across the middle, and Lewis had a few catches (that were all borderline out of bounds), but I still don't feel there's a comfort level like there was w Moss & Welker in the first season - maybe by the end of TC.

    Thats really about it, I spent most of the time just enjoying the fact that Brady & Moss were out there, and enjoying the scrimmages, b/c there were some real nice plays.
