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:

Hogan has his thigh wrapped on the sidelines

Could've sworn Jesse James was blocking his guy up the field before the pass to Rogers. But perhaps my eyes deceived me.

Kind of weird Pats didn't appear to have a Mike on that 3rd down. Open space exploited

Next time BB the GM is criticized point to Chris Hogan. @CSNNE

Impressive job by Branch to hold the point of attack and stuff Bell for no gain

RT @PFF_NateJahnke: Including the playoffs, Sammie Coates has dropped 8 of 29 catchable passes. His 27.59 drop rate is the worst in the lea…

Jones hit him on Sunday, kick returner fell back to Wednesday.

RT @RyanHannable: With 47 yards receiving, Julian Edelman has passed Deion Branch for the most postseason receiving yards in Patriots franc…

Hightower back on the field.

Hightower is on the field. Guessing it was a planned rotation. Pats using a lot of defensive personnel.

Dont'a Hightower is back after missing the last series.

With LB Dont'a Hightower back on the field, a reflection that Patriots are adopting early-game rotation with his health in mind.

Hightower on field to start series

Jonathan Jones just lit up Sammie Coates.

With 47 yards receiving, Julian Edelman has passed Deion Branch for the most postseason receiving yards in Patriots franchise history.

On the Apollo 11 mission, Michael Collins was closer to Steelers defenders than Chris Hogan was just now

Tom Brady is 10-for-12 for 128 yards and a touchdown in the opening 12+ minutes of the game.

Tom Brady: 10-for-12 for 128 yards, 1 TD Chris Hogan: 4 catches, 57 yards, 1 TD Dion Lewis: 3 carries, 10 yards

If Mitchell could catch, this game would be over right now. Either way, it's close.

@drum146232 had to be aware of up the gut pressure. James White picked it up. Gave him time to survey

Chris Hogan looked pretty beat-up mid-drive. Stayed on the field. Caught all four passes sent his way for 58 yards and a score.

@In_The_Slot Bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see how it plays out.

RT @cgasper: Steelers brought inside linebackers and dropped their best pass rusher, Bud Dupree, into coverage on zone blitz. It didn't wor…

    He was my favorite player from the AFL. That was when Tarington was throwing bombs to Homer Jones in the NFL and Al Davis was actually a great Football exec.

    What he did in 1970 was unbelievable. In 5 consecutive weeks, he either tied or won a game at the end of regulation by either throwing TD passes or kicking field goals, in an era when kickers barely converted 50% of their kicks...Oh and was 42 or 43 years old at the time......

    Saw him live when the Pats played in Hahvid Stadium. Crowd would walk out mixed in with the players. Houston guys like Hennigan & Groman were big, tall. Stood next to Pats TE Tony Romeo and he was short and stocky. Aside from a few like Larry Eisenhauer at 6' 4" the Pats of that era were stubby kinda guys.

    My 1972 George Blanda card has always been one of my most cherished football cards, from the year I started collecting. That dude scored a mess of points as a kicker, not even counting all his QBing.

    I remember watching those games, or at least the highlights of them. He def. had the Last Hurrah/Lion in Winter thing going for him, and had I imagine a lot of the country rooting for him, incl. my dad, brother & I.

    Until 1976 happened, I actually liked the Oakland Raiders.
