In the first quarter, the Patriots struck first, with Brandin Cooks immediately rebounding from last weeks struggles as he hauled in a 43 yard deep ball from Tom Brady which help setup the games first touchdown. Running back Rex Burkhead would bang it in from the goal line for an early 7-0 lead.

The Steelers dynamic offense wasted no time and quickly responded to tie the game at 7 when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger found Eli Rogers on this 18 yard touchdown strike.

In the second quarter, both teams traded field goals to knot the score at 10, but Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski provided some highlights leading to the scores.

With the clock winding down on the first half, the Steelers found the end zone for a second time when Roethlisberger found Bryant and the Patriots headed to the locker room trailing, but only by 7 at 17-10.

The Patriots got the ball to open the second half, and in what would be a recurrence all night long, Gronkowski continued to haul in big yardage.

The reception would lead to Brady’s first touchdown pass of the game, but a Stephen Gostkowski extra point was missed, and the Patriots had to settle trailing by one at 17-16.

Like in the first quarter, the Steelers again responded as another member of the “Killer B’s” found the end zone when Le’veon Bell ran the ball in from the three, 24-16 Steelers after three quarters.

In the fourth quarter, the Patriots defense began to tighten up for the first time all game despite third down struggles, and Tom Brady drove the Patriots into field goal range for Gostkowski to cut the deficit to five at 24-19.

With two minutes to go in the game, the Patriots were given one more opportunity to retake the  lead following a big third down stop. Brady and Gronkowski went to work.

Courtesy of three big receptions for 69 yards, Gronkowski helped setup the go ahead score, an eight yard run by the former Pitt Panther Dion Lewis. 27-24 Patriots.

The clock had just under a minute for Big Ben to try and rally, and his rookie wideout Juju Smith-Schuster provided instant life on an incredible 69 yard catch and run.

The play setup what appeared to be tight end Jesse James game winning touchdown, but the play was reviewed and ruled not a catch by the officals.

Despite the controversy that ensued the Steelers still had time for another play despite no timeouts, but instead of spiking the ball to setup a game tying field goal, Roethlisberger gambled with a pass, and the result was Duron “The Closer” Harmon.

An incredible goal line stand that brought back memories of Super Bowl XLIX, and the Patriots survived and won in Pittsburgh yet again while taking over the number 1 seed in the AFC and another division title.

A 27-24 final in a thriller and just two divisional games at home remain where the Patriots control their destiny for playoff positioning.

Social Media Reacts To The Passing Of Terry Glenn

Robert Alvarez
November 21, 2017 at 5:42 pm ET

On Monday morning it was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that former New England Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn passed away at a hospital in Dallas, Texas following an automobile accident. Glenn was 43 years old.

Glenn played his first six NFL seasons with the Patriots, who drafted him seventh overall in the 1996 NFL Draft. During that timespan, Glenn played in 68 games and recorded 329 receptions for 4,669 yards and 22 touchdowns. He currently ranks eighth in team history in receiving yards and ninth in receptions.

In his first year with the Patriots, Glenn made an immediate impact on the team, starting 15 games and setting an NFL record for most receptions by a rookie with 90 catches for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns. His contributions that year helped the Patriots earn an 11-5 regular season record, claim their first division title in a decade, achieve their first playoff victory in Foxboro Stadium and advance to Super Bowl XXXI.

In a press release by the team, Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft shared the following statement;

“We were shocked and deeply saddened by today’s news that Terry Glenn died in an auto accident,” Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said. “Terry was one of the most gifted receivers we have ever had. For so many Patriots fans, his rookie season will be remembered as one of the most impactful in franchise history. After a disappointing 6-10 finish in 1995, we drafted Terry seventh overall, and in his first year, he helped propel the Patriots to an AFC Championship and Super Bowl appearance. One of my favorite memories came when we hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional playoff game. It was my first home playoff game as an owner and just the second home playoff game in our history. It will always be remembered for the fog that filled Foxboro Stadium that day. Yet, on the first play from scrimmage, Drew Bledsoe threw a deep pass that disappeared in the fog and reappeared 53 yards downfield in Terry Glenn’s hands. We scored on the next play and ended up winning 28-3. Our thoughts and prayers are with Terry’s family, his former teammates and friends who mourn his loss.”

As word spread throughout the NFL, former teammates of Glenn along with present players took to their social media accounts to share their final goodbyes and condolences with personal tributes.

Best of Social Media: Week 5 Patriots vs Browns

October 10, 2016 at 9:09 am ET

When the New England Patriots arrived in Cleveland for Week 5 of the regular season, it marked not only the return of quarterback and leader Tom Brady, but a homecoming of sorts for wide receiver and Kent State University graduate Julian Edelman.

After going 3-1 without Brady, the Patriots were looking to get back on track with a win against the win-less Browns.

Defensive end Jabaal Sheard chose an interesting way to wear a Brady jersey.

His brother and law, and former Red Sox Kevin Youkilis tweeted out his support before the game.

What became noticeable right away was the enormous support of Patriots Nation on the road in attendance.

The Brady family was ready to go.

Brady to Gronk is back!

Yeah, Brady’s first drive showed little rust.

Martellus Bennett was walking all over the Browns defense on Sunday, a career high three touchdown receptions.

But the spikes could use a little work.

Dont’a Hightower sent Browns rookie Quarterback Cody Kessler into last week, he would leave the game following this safety.

Poor…poor Browns.

Enter, Clipboard Jesus!

Double team Gronk, no problem.

Probably for the best.

“They just aren’t good anymore.”

Despite the Patriots rolling right along into a halftime, kicker Stephen Gostkowski continued to battle a case of the shank, causing more panic something is wrong.

FLEX ON EM!

Martellus Bennett won people a lot of fantasy football games.

Now that’s a legal victory.

It was safe to say Brady had an immediate impact on the season.

Gillette Stadium Great Lakes.

With the 33-13 victory the Patriots move to 4-1 on the season and return home to play the Cincinnati Bengals at 1pm on Sunday, take it away TB Times.

Posted by Tom Brady on Sunday, October 9, 2016

Following the game, head coach Bill Belichick had the team buses stop in front of the statue of Jim Brown to pay tribute and appreciation to the Hall of Famer. When asked about the stop, Belichick had this to say during his monday morning conference call;

“That statue was recently put there, it’s kind of remarkable that it hadn’t happened sooner, but regardless I’m not sure how many of our players really understand or appreciate what he meant to the game and what he has meant to the game through his continued involvement,” Belichick then said, “That’s why we did it and I’m glad they appreciated it. Hopefully that’s something as part of their football career will be one small memory, is just the recognition of a great player and a great person and somebody who’s really made the game better for all of us.”

Squad showing respect to the great Jim Brown!
