Steelers Vs Patriots

November 15, 2010 by staff 

Steelers Vs Patriots, (AFP) – Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and scored once himself as New England bounced back from an embarrassing NFL defeat with a 39-26 victory over Pittsburgh.

The Patriots’ superstar quarterback on Sunday completed 30 of 43 passing attempts for 350 yards with no sacks or interceptions, and took his career total of touchdown passes against the Steelers to 14.

Brady engineered an opening 70-yard drive on New England’s first possession that ended with his 19-yard scoring pass to rookie Rob Gronkowski.

Gronkowski caught all three of Brady’s touchdown passes, including another that capped New England’s opening drive of the second half and gave the Patriots a 17-3 lead.

Brady, who had said he was embarrassed by his team’s 34-14 loss at Cleveland last week, was noticeably emotional, shouting during huddles and upbraiding teammates for penalties.

Brady connected with Gronkowski for a third time on a 25-yard toss that took the score to 36-18.

At 7-2, the Patriots share the American Conference’s best record with AFC East division rivals the New York Jets.

The Jets posted a 26-20 overtime victory over Cleveland. New York’s San Antonio Holmes scored on a 37-yard touchdown pass from Mark Sanchez with 16 seconds left in overtime

Buffalo captured their first victory of the season, their success coming at the expense of a Detroit team that set a record for on-the-road futility with a 25th straight away defeat.

Fred Jackson ran for a season-best 133 yards and scored twice in leading the Bills to a 14-12 victory over the Lions, who broke their own previous record for consecutive losses on the road of 24 — set from 2001-03.

Star Colts quarterback Peyton Manning failed to throw a touchdown pass for just the second time this season, but the Colts scored 13 points off five Cincinnati turnovers to beat the Bengals 23-17.

Kelvin Hayden returned an interception for a touchdown and Javarris James ran for his third touchdown in two weeks for the Colts, who improved to 6-3.

Miami snapped a five-game home losing streak, including three defeats this season, with a 29-17 victory over Tennessee.

The Dolphins prevailed despite injuries to starting quarterback Chad Pennington and backup Chad Henne, with third-stringer Tyler Thigpen left to seal the victory with an 85-yard drive in the fourth quarter.

Kerry Collins started at quarterback for the Titans but departed after one half with a calf injury.

He was replaced by Vince Young, who was nursing a sprained left ankle and was unimpressive. New Titans arrival Randy Moss caught just one pass.

Chicago defeated Minnesota 27-13 as the Bears capitalized on three interceptions from Vikings quarterback Brett Favre and tied Green Bay for the NFC North Lead. The Packers were idle this week.

San Francisco rallied for a 23-20 overtime win over St. Louis, whose defeat allowed Seattle — 36-18 winners over Arizona — to take sole possession of first place in the NFC West division.

It came down to the wire in Jacksonville, where Mike Thomas caught a 50-yard touchdown pass from David Garrard on the final play of regulation time to give the Jaguars a 31-24 victory over Houston.

There was no suspense in Denver, where the Broncos routed Kansas City 49-29.

The Dallas Cowboys, playing for the first time since coach Wade Phillips was sacked, defeated the New York Giants 33-20, and Tampa Bay beat Carolina 31-16.
