Kevin Gorman's Take 5: Patriots steal one from Steelers

Kevin Gorman's Take 5: Patriots steal one from Steelers

Then two plays later, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tried to pull the fake spike trick and was intercepted in a shocking finish.

Brown, who has emerged as a candidate for this year's Most Valuable Player Award, was trying to make a catch in the end zone early in the second quarter when his left leg got caught between Duron Harmon and Eric Rowe of the Patriots. Brady threw for 298 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He's leading the National Football League in passing yards and carried a sterling 27:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio into Sunday.

Patriots running back Rex Burkhead was ruled out of the Patriots-Steelers game after suffering a knee injury in the third quarter on Sunday. Gronkowski, fresh off a one-game suspension, finished with nine receptions for 168 yards, including four on the game-winning drive. Official overturned the play on the grounds that James did not have control of the ball.

Williams bobbled the ball before hauling it in and returning the pick 13 yards to the Patriots' 22. The failure to secure the catch by James at the goal line took a go-ahead touchdown off the board, which subsequently led to an interception on a pass that would not have been attempted had the margin been fewer than three.

"We've got to be prepared to go with the guys we have on the field", Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin said during an on-field interview at halftime.

Even Sony, their biggest competitor thinks that Nintendo Switch is not a console that should be overlooked sales-wise. The original plan for Nintendo is to ship 14 million Nintendo Switch consoles by the end of this financial year.

The AFC again runs through New England.

Brown left in obvious pain after getting his left leg tangled up with a pair of New England defenders.

Pittsburgh began their final drive with a 69-yard catch-and-run from receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, giving Pittsburgh the ball on New England's 10-yard line.

After one half of play the Steelers are up 17-10, and much of that is due to the resiliency of their offense.
