Patriots rally, hang on to beat Steelers

Catch or not? NFL clarifies why Steelers' touchdown call was reversed

These two teams were guaranteed to have the game of the week, but the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots didn't disappoint on Sunday afternoon in their Week 15 matchup.

The Patriots defense kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone on the next two plays, finishing them off with an interception on the last one. He was able to put weight on the injured leg as he headed to the locker room for further evaluation.

Gronkowski was enormous, as he was Brady's go-to guy on the final touchdown drive - which began at the New England 23-yard line with 2:06 remaining.

Somehow, some way, the New England Patriots beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

With no obvious M.V.P. candidates among the league's quarterbacks and running backs, Brown has been discussed as having the potential to become the first wide receiver to win the award, which has been given out by The Associated Press since 1957.

At halftime, the Steelers announced that Brown would be taken to a hospital and would not return tothe game.

First, he stretched out for a diving, 39-yard catch on the first play of the second quarter to the Patriots' 17. - Gronkowski to give the Patriots a 27-24 lead with 52 seconds left. Ben Roethlisberger hit Jesse James for what appeared to be a 10-yard touchdown, but a review showed James lost possession.

Before you could blink, JuJu Smith-Schuster answered with a 69-yard catch down the left sideline, and it looked like the Steelers would steal a victory. Roethlisberger faked a spike before trying to force a throw to Eli Rogers, and the ball was tipped and intercepted by Duron Harmon.

They improve to 11-3 with the win, clinch the AFC East, and keep alive hopes to have home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs as they now own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Steelers (11-3).
