Pats lined up to start the 2nd Half in a little trouble. Brady quickly hit
Cooks to start. Then lined up in a power Singleback. He handed it to Dion.
He broke a couple of ankles getting outside for the First. Brady then
flowed into a Shotgun. The O-line had great protection, as he looked
right. Then he snapped over to the left and found Allen. He actually
caught it, and ran for the first.
Pats lined up at midfield in a run formation. Dion hopped outside with
great lateral explosion. Then hopped up field for six. But he came off the
field after he took them over midfield. They ran play action, and Brady
lofted a floater to Gronk.
was being punch and slapped running down the Seam. "Even when Rob is
covered he's open because he is so long, and he has such great range and
reach. If you can put the ball away from the player who's covering him
even though he's close, Rob can get it and the other guy can't," BB
said. "That happens to us a lot defensively too with those types of
receivers. Even though you're right there, the quarterback puts the ball
where only the receiver can get it and the defender can't have enough
reach to get there. Then that's a good throw and a good catch." He
leaped up and snagged it for the First. Then they went back to the run.
Pats lined up on 2nd and 4, and stayed in the run formation. Burkhead ran
again. 3rd and 1, Pats in a Power-I with one WR. But Allen started falsely
to make it 3rd and 6. Pats lined up in a 4-Wide Strong Shotgun. Brady had
time, and hit White. But he was short.
go for it on 4th and 1. They lined up in a 4-Wide Weak shotgun, with Gronk
out wide all alone. "It's just risk-reward, I think for the
quarterback. Anytime with Gronk though, we've played so much football
together. I have so much trust in him," Brady said. "It may look
like it's 50-50, but it might be 95-5. You try to develop that chemistry
over time, and Gronk's earned it. He played a hell of a game. I'm just
really proud of him. That guy fights his ass off every day. I'm happy for
him and happy for our team. Now we have to go take care of business at
home." He slanted inside and Brady put it in his breadbasket like it
was a handoff.
and goal on the 6, Pats in a Big Ugly I with no WRs on the field. They ran
Burkhead to the Right. Shaq and Gronk gave Develin and Burk a hole to run
through. But it closed too fast.
and Goal from the five. Burkhead got concussed on the ground at the Four.
They then lined up on 2nd and Goal in the I. Gronk snuck outside of the
play action. He was open, but Brady put too much air under it, which
allowed Hilton to come and knock it out. 3rd and Goal Empty. Brady had to
charge forward out of the pocket like he was going to run forward. Then he
suddenly stopped. He hit Cooks right in the gut for a perfect TD. But on
the extra point, the Holder fumbled the snap a little, and Gostkowski
missed the extra point. Pats-16. Pitt-17.
Pats-D had to step up. They showed a 3-3 Nickel. Pitt ran Bell off tackle
for about 20. Pats lined up same-same, and got fooled by a reverse for
another First. Now over midfield. Pats stayed 4-2 Nickel. Flowers hit
Roethlisberger as he threw. As Flowers drilled Roethlisberger into the
ground, the ball drilled into the ground as well. 2nd and 10, 3-3 Nickel
with five guys on the line. Ricky Jean-François and Flowers took Bell
down at the line. 3rd and everything. Pats crowd the line with six guys,
and sent five. Three rushers knocked blockers into Roethlisberger as he
threw. The ball bounced off Bell's hands. Richards knocked him off his
feet before he could bring it in to force the punt.
the Pats can score on this possession it has to shake up the Steelers a
little. Brady lined up in the I. They ran Dion off tackle, but he never
made it to the LOS. 2nd and 13, Singleback. Play action.
turned back and hit Gronk easy. "He was doing it himself," Brady
said. "I think they were trying to challenge us and he made a lot of
good plays. Other guys make a lot of good plays too, but when he's open he
gets it. It was just a great game by him. He played so, so great."
Gronk dragged the LB past the marker.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a Singleback. Another play action and Brady
tried to touch it to Dion, but he had two big DLs on him. He looked like a
mouse trying to post up a Cat. But then they ran him up the middle, and
Dion spun for eight. 3rd and 2, Empty. Brady got hit as he threw, and the
ball flopped right to the LB for an INT. The Pats D couldn't hold, and
gave up a TD to Bell. Pats-16. Pitt-24.
lined up down 8 with the 3rd quarter ending. They had to go shotgun. Brady
lofted a terrible pass to White. 2nd and 10, 3-Wide Winged shotgun. Brady
hit Gronk. "I missed the boys," Gronk said. "They are
always grinding every single week. These guys are my teammates and they
are great to be around. I definitely miss them and it's great to be
back." He shoved off two defenders to turn up field and get the
and 10, the Pats go I for nothing. 2nd and 10, I. Play action. Brady hit
Develin over the middle, and he dropped it. 3rd and 10, 4-Wide Weak
shotgun. Brady had time and couldn’t throw it. Then he got hit as he
threw to sink the 3rd quarter.
