Another visit to New England ends with another loss

The Patriots won 55-31. (AP Photo/Steven Senne) Another game at New England against Tom Brady ends in another loss, this time in embarrassing fashion. The team should certainly be ashamed of the display they put on as they allowed the most yards against them in the history of the franchise (610), they allowed 55 points and they were outscored 31-7 after tying the game in the 3rd quarter.

Game Day Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger talks with Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Stacy McGee after game in Oakland, Calif., Oct. 27. The Raiders won 21-18. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) At 2-5; the Steelers are officially in crisis mode. Their reward? A trip to New England where they never win against Tom Brady and the Patriots. The season is rapidly slipping away and it’s on Mike Tomlin, Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of the coaches and veterans to not let this ship completely sink.

At the Finish Line

by Bill Neal BILL NEAL * So that you’re caught up, the Finish Line is about just that. The end. A conclusion. A final thought if you will. Some things for you to reconsider before it’s over. Before you cross the finish line. * There are roughly a trillion or so TV and radio stations in the Pittsburgh and Allegheny County areas, but for some unknown reason there is no, none, zero conversation about the NBA finals. The Penguins have been dead for a month. The Pirates have “90″ more games. The Power . . . well, they have no power. No Pitt or college anything and the Steelers are two months away. But there is no conversation about the NBA. And for the record, now the 2nd highest grossing sport in the U.S., behind the NFL . . . hockey is 4th. Why? I don’t know. But if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and quacks . . . then guess what?
