1-22-17: NFL Playoffs Update- AFC Championship: New England 17, Pittsburgh 9

There are times that the play calling of Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley can be frustrating to watch. That last drive in the second quarter was a good example. Nevertheless the Steelers are within a touchdown of the favored New England juggernaut as it’s Patriots 17, Steelers 9 at the half.

Box score from our pals at NFL.com:

Hope Haley understands that field goals aren’t going to get it done against this Tom Brady fellow as he’s on pace for a 400 yard, 4 touchdown performance.

30 minutes remain to determine who faces The Son Matt Ryan. We’ll see if America’s favorite Omar Epps lookalike can rally the troops in a hostile Foxboro enviroment.
