    The Steelers were ill-prepared to take on the Oakland Raiders in Week Eight and no matter what was said after the game, they were looking ahead to this game against the Patriots and it cost them in a big way.

    The Patriots don’t have the kind of explosive offensive team that fans are used to seeing, but they are 5-1 and in first place in the AFC East.

    While Drew Brees has not been winging the ball around the field like Peyton Manning, he has been dynamic in his own right and he may be the best quarterback in the NFC.

    Despite his cast of no-name receivers, Tom Brady is getting better and better each week. He is coming off an excellent performance at Atlanta, in which he completed 20-of-31 passes for 316 yards with two touchdowns.

    Matt Ryan is one of the best regular-season quarterbacks in the league. That’s meant as a compliment, but when you don’t win in the postseason, it impacts your reputation.
