Belichick: 'Good to get back on track'

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, following his team's surprisingly one-sided 39-26 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, praised the performance of the entire squad in explaining how New England recovered in such dramatic fashion from a loss to the Browns one week earlier.

 

Belichick described the strong play of the offensive line and the involvement of virtually every skill position group, as well as a tremendous defensive effort (up until, he noted, there were lapses in the waning minutes while Pittsburgh operated in a two-minute offense) in analyzing a "good team effort all the way around."

 

"Players did a great job. They played hard, made enough plays. It wasn’t always perfect, but it never is against the Steelers. They cause you a lot of problems. It’s hard to do all things well against them," said Belichick. "So it’s good to win, get back on track here. Of...

Steel tough: Pats sack Pittsburgh

An inspired and fired-up Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski and ran for another as the Patriots bounced back from their worst game of the of the year with one of their best in a 39-26 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night at Heinz Field. Defensively, the Patriots harassed Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger all night, recording five sacks while James Sanders returned an interception 31 yards for a key touchdown in the fourth quarter. 

 

Brady, who passed the 300-yard plateau for the first time this season, completed 30-of-43 passes for 350 yards and his two TD passes. Brady yelled at his entire offensive unit during a second-quarter tirade and the offense struggling. Gronkowski became the first Patriots rookie ever with three touchdowns in a game. 

 

Steelers star receiver Hines Ward was knocked out of the game with a neck injury on a hit to the head by Sanders with 10 seconds left...

Hines Ward leaves with neck injury

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward left the field after being belted by Patriots safety James Sanders on the final play of the first quarter due to what his team described as a neck injury. Replays made it appear as if Ward was the victim of a helment-to-helment collision with Sanders. His return was described as questionable.

 

The play was initially ruled a catch, but after the Patriots challenged that ruling, it was determined an incompletion on instant replay. Ward, who has yet to catch a pass in Sunday night's game against the Patriots, owns the third longest streak of consecutive games with a catch in NFL history, having hauled in passes in 186 straight contests, a mark exceeded only by Jerry Rice and Marvin Harrison. Ward entered the game with 30 catches for 375 yards on the season.
