So thank you Draft fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of my books and website worldwide.

3rd Quarter.

By TOM

The 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.

The 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.

He 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.

The 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.

Pats 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.

1st 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.

2nd 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.

The 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. 

If 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.

Brady 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.

1st 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.

Pats 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 First.

1st 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.
